Doesn't matter which one you go to - the food is always good! Huge portions so plan to share something ~ everything!

Finally, a casual Italian restaurant with really good Italian food! At the suggestion of another in our party, we went late afternoon to avoid the dinner rush and a potentially long wait. We were seated immediately. The table (5 people) shared an appetizer of garlic bread, which was quite good. My personal preference would have been more garlic however, the garlic flavor was there and everyone else raved. We also shared a salad for the table which turned out to be an excellent idea as it was more than ample to satiate all at the table. We did each order an entree and in hindsight, we should have gone the sharing route....the portions were huge. With the exception of one of us, we all had the angel hair pasta with their spicy sauce. While it was not as spicy as I would have liked, it was really flavorful; and the table included a shaker of hot pepper flakes so all could add additional heat as desired. Of special note is the sausage....it was very good. Their meatballs are very tender, a welcome change to the packed ball of meat found at other Italian restaurants...and the flavor was good. We ended with the cookie, which was slightly burnt...however, it was still quickly devoured.

Service was exceptional and all of the staff was very friendly and pleasant. Overall,I was really pleased with the food, service, and overall cost. Dinner for five people, with a bottle of wine, was just over $100...we have spent much more for less people and have not been as satisfied with quality and price.

We enjoyed our meal very much, unfortunately the 3 of us did not get our first choice in drinks...NO DECAF?? Pizza great! I was so looking forward to the cookie, which we had to go, I get to it an hour later only to find it burnt...Very disappointing as every one raved about it.

The oregano spice was way overwhelming. The pasta in a bread bowl was very disappointing. I ordered it with two meat balls on the side for a few bucks extra.It t came with meat chunked up along with the sauce and pasta. Cheap sauce from a jar would have tasted better than this and still the dish was very dry. I will not return. The famous cookie with ice cream dessert was burned and it looked like a bite had already been taken out of it. Keep going...better down the road I am certain!!!
