“Great Italian food”
Reviewed October 8, 2011

My wife & I have eaten there 4 times ... always more than satisfied with the food. Their all-you-can-eat pasta is a good deal & the sauce is tasty, served on well-cooked pasta ... never mushy! Their veal parmeggiana was humongous, with the breaded veal cutlet hanging over the edge of the plate, accompanied by good al-dente spaghetti. Their appetizers are also excellent ... calamari are great. My wife really enjoys the breaded scallops with veggies.

If I have 1 criticism, it's that the staff could be a bit more attentive ... they may leave you waiting, even though tables are free. But each time we've been there, the place is full .... which is a good sign.

“food inconsistant too many staff changes”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

been here 3 times food is so - so ..they are alway advertising for breakfast cook dishwasher and probably why the food is never the same twice....seems they have trouble hanging on to staff........poor treatment /work conditions? dunno what I do know is this place has potential ... seems like the current owners couldn't care less about the business and how customers feel.esp one of the waitreses who always seems to be unhappy/indiffernet when customers walk in ..
