“A little better than average Italian food.”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

Had a client business lunch here today and it was a little better than average Italian food. The menu is very traditional Italian fair and your chose of either family or individual size portions. I think It's one of the better Italian chain restaurants in the U.S. The food is nothing great, but it's good and you get good size portions. This is the second time I have been here and it's always busy and the service is good. I plan on returning here to eat when I'm in the area again.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere”
Reviewed October 27, 2009

This is a favorite place for me and my son. Great food, lots of variety, new dishes every so often, reasonable prices, and the atmosphere is fantastic. We love the fun servers, fast service, and did I mention the food is great every time? Everything we've tried has been good, but some of our favorites are italian wedding soup, Lemon Chicken, Salmon and roasted vegetables, spaghetti and meatballs, fettucini alfredo, and the gelato for dessert.

Spimoni is the best :) Everything about this place is amazing. Just make sure you have a bunch of people to eat with you; there is no such thing as small portions here. :D
