My wife and I love the ravioli here also the pizza. Service is great and so are the drinks. Close for a stroll up and down University Avenue after dinner.

I got take out here, but it was well packaged and delicious. Love how they have half portions of almost everything on the menu as well as calorie counts. The bread is awesome too....

Very good menu. Reasonable sized servings and attentive staff.
Nice ambiance. We had a private room one night for a meeting. It was just right for a presentation, drinks and dinner for 12.
The specials vary every night so there is a lot of choice.

Quality of food was very high but servers seem almost condescending to customers. Also heard some arguing at one station--not good, kids!

We go here every year and it never fails: bustling busy we aren't the only ones who have figured this out. We sit out in the open air area that has heaters and low lighting and chat for hours while we taste the scrumptious offerings from h'orderves - dessert.
