Last Wednesday my husband and I stopped here for an early evening meal (about 4:30). We were pleasantly surprised to learn bottles of wine are 1/2 price on Wednesdays so we ordered a pinot grigio. The waitress brought a small, warm loaf of bread and a plate of olive oil with roasted garlic. Mmmmm it was good! My husband ordered... More

Since we were in town for only one night and staying in a hotel close by, we thought we'd give this highly rated restaurant a try. First a note about its physical appearance. This is a very large restaurant with several nicely appointed side rooms. We were seated in the main dinning area, which was ok, but close to the... More

Personally I like Olive Garden way better than this place. We went in the early afternoon and honestly our service was slow. And it was not busy at all. Our food was average. Nothing special about it. I don't think I would give this another try.

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor after checking into hotel in Sioux Falls. Reviews looked good, so Hubby and I thought we'd try it. Good decision. I thought it looked like the big Italian chain restaurants (I'm not sure if this one is a big chain -- I've never heard of it until today), but that's where the similarity ends. I... More

Our family has been going for a number of years. I think it is time to update the restaurant...certainly feels a bit dingy...the table was "sticky". In other words as far as being Italian, they could do much more in improving the atmosphere. Our service was not good. We had to wait over 20 minutes for our drinks and finally... More

Don't be in a hurry if you decide to eat here. I have gone to this restaurant because of the good food for a late lunch and for dinner several times. The service is good but the food takes a very long time to arrive. It didn't seem to matter much if the restaurant was busy or quiet, it still... More

Great service and great price. Loved it he atmosphere and the food was full of flavor and the perfect size ranging from children plates to adult servings. We will defiantly revisit this restaurant...wish we had one closer to home

Somewhat upscale, but somewhat shopworn, Italian-American chain restaurant. Big place, nice bar. Interesting menu items, mostly with spaghetti, not macaroni which I tend to prefer with roots going back to Little Italy in NYC.

I ordered take out and it was fine. I attempted to order an appetizer but they were out of mushrooms. I noted there were a lot of people working there and my waiter felt free to correct me when I transposed two words in my order. He understood what I meant but felt like he needed to embarrass me.

We enjoyed our visit and shared a family entree from the menu. The patio allows dogs and that was great for us as we were traveling with our dog. Our server was very helpful and friendly.
