“Surprisingly good food”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We had dinner here 3 nights in a row, since this restaurant was the one that suited us best in walking distance from the hotel we stayed at. Although the place resembles a roadside cafe and is very busy and full of people the food was surprisingly good. There are a lot of noise because of the crowded space, but the good food outweighs for this. The service may vary, but we had superb service by Jinko one of the evenings. One evening the main dish was served too close to the starter, but this was handled in a superb way the final night. Surprisingly good level of the wines!

“Dependable service”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

They have a good menu selection, and the service at our local Olive Garden is dependably good. We love the zeppoli for dessert with chocolate and raspberry dipping sauces, Sometimes they have a vanilla sauce also. Be sure to ask!

“Average Fast Production Italian Food”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

It is loud, right off the highway and a mass production type of Italian food...why settle for this when one can get better Italian food, made fresh daily from some of the Mom and Pop operations?
