We have been going to this restaurant for years but we will never go again.
The restaurant was not busy and it took them over an hour to take our dinner order. The owner kept saying "we will take care of you" and they never did. After finally taking the food order we were never given soup or salads or bread. one hour and 40 minutes into the nightmare of a family dinner we decided to leave, the waiter said our food was coming out. so we sat back down and were amazed at how bad it was. The salmon ravioli made my son sick and he sent it back. Even the spaghetti and meatballs that we had enjoyed several times before was awful. How do you ruin spaghetti and meatballs? it was unbelievable, only the bus boy showed any concern for the horrendous service and food we received. The owner who was going to "take care of us" came out with the full bill after we asked for the bill several times. Other customers were telling us to leave because the could't believe how bad the service was. We should have. A man who said he knew the owner said he would not come back either.
I don't know what happen to this restaurant since our last visit but we will never be back. I am not in the habit of writing bad reviews but this was so horrible that it had to be said. It is just totally unacceptable.

The remodel is nice. Outdoor seating is nice. The Sunday buffet is outstanding. I guess 2 servers did not show up this past Sunday. Our service was very slow and inattentive.

Let's start by saying the entrée was delicious. I did enjoy it but felt the portion could have been a little larger. My husband was still hungry. The meal came with choice of either soup or salad. I had the pasta fagioli and my husband had a salad with blue cheese dressing. The soup was lukewarm and really not very good at all. I have had pasta fagioli at many different restaurants and they are always prepared a little different, but this was watery and did not have much flavor. The salad was also a little on the small side. When the bill came, we were charged $2 more for blue cheese dressing. The waitress never mentioned this. We questioned the charge since it was added into the price of the meal (a little sneaky if you didn't remember the price on the menu). She told us it was the upcharge for the dressing. Wow, we just paid $2 for a teaspoon of blue cheese dressing. Considering each entrée was almost $20, it should have been included. Not sure if we will be returning.

We tried the Sunday buffet right after their remodel was finished. A great way to try most of their Italian dishes, deserts included.
