The bread is different. You dip it into oil...but there is a hit of sweetness on the crust. Had the Fettuccine Alfredo. Tasted good but nothing you can't get at any other Italian place. Was staying at hotel on same premises and there wasn't anything else close by. Would return if staying at hotel again but wouldnt go out of... More

When we entered the restaurant the hostess was great. The place was packed, UW graduation and proms. We had no reservations. She told us the wait would be 20 min. It was more like 15mi. We were seated at a booth. The waitress came to talk to us after a ten min wait.We had not made up our mind, yet.... More

It took nearly 2 hours to get the food. When it takes that long, the food should be stellar. On this occasion, it was edible - but not fantastic. The chicken alfredo was recommended and fell flat. The chicken was a bit dry. The sauce needed more seasoning. Women's underwear hanging throughout the restaurant is hardly appealing either.

Jason; We are so very sorry you had a less than wonderful experience at this location last week. We will look into these issues with the timing and the Chicken Fettuccine right away. That was not our norm and will not be issues again. Thank you for taking the time to comment because it is only through your feedback that... More

I was was pleasantly impressed with the good selection of gluten free entrees on their menu. The host & server were very pleasant. The restaurant atmosphere is nice. They have daily specials in addition to the menu. I had gluten free baked penne with cheese & a salad. My spouse had baked spaghetti with meat ball & salad. Our food... More

Located in a strip mall. Very nice interior with a bar and separate eating area. They served bread first with a olive oil dipping sauce (great) . The salad was disappointing..two grape tomatoes, some cucumber slices a few croutons a small amount of good dressing. The main dish was very good...we had fettuccini, manicotti and the salmon. All done very... More

We had a great dinner here. Had a special 4 course meal promo. Prices included an appetizer, soup or salad, choice of entrée & dessert. Cost ranged from $13.00-$17.00 per person. Beyond great value we also enjoyed great service. Will I return again? Most certainly!

I can't rate the food at this restaurant as we were never acknowledged as to our presence by the front counter. Apparently, the computer was more interesting to her than a customer. We waited for nearly 15 minutes and with no one even making an attempt at helping us we left the place and went to a small restaurant on... More

We picked this as it was close to our hotel. Nice restaurant with good food. The wait staff kept up with our drinks and the service from them was good.
