Went here because of the advertised dog friendly menu. We never saw that after asking our waitress twice. We did get water dishes for them though so that was nice. One order was messed up and she was confused about that. Wasn’t the brightest crayon...More

My husband and I love Panini's woodfired pizza and order carry out frequently. If you don't like their ingredients, you can build your own pizza. Their flatbread is really good with the crusty crunchy crust. Nice drink selection.

I mean the service is great, everyone whom I’ve ever talked to here has been super nice...but the food is just so bad. I don’t know what but their salads are just so gross and everything is just kind of dry/bland.

We ate here last summer... it was just okay. The salad was okay. The pizzas were just okay. Nothing, at all, to write home about.

I avoid giving a 5 to anything but fine dining gourmet restaurants, but this earns a solid 4.5, and I would go back again. The sandwiches and soups are delicious, the service first rate, and the view from the backyard patio onto the river is...More

If you're concerned about this, I recommend avoiding this place all together! The food is great: well seasoned, presented and portions are ample. Of course, they do have salads with oil and vinegar on the side to dress it up. More

Just visiting there unsure. A call to the restaurant should do the trick.
