“Don't be fooled by their 2 for $25 deals.”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

By the time you order, your meal, and then add any drinks or anything else, tips and tax, you will be over the $50 or $70 dollar amount for 2 people. Don't be fooled by the deals and be prepared to spend a lot more than the $25. A tiny glass of wine was $6.50. I might as well go to Disney with those prices. Sorry Olive Garden, the food is not worth $50, $60 or $70 Dollars.

The wait staff was polite. The booth tables are too small for four people and we didn't have enough room on the table with the oversized dishes. They were very busy and we felt rushed. I want to finish our appetizer before they brought out the salad, we weren't done with the salad and they brought out the main course. I am not going to spend that much money to be rushed.

The pasta dishes are tasty but very heavy. The chicken in the 2 dishes we had didn't amount to a 1/4 of a chicken breast for the both of us. Not worth the money we spent.

It was very noisy, the tables are too close to each other. I don't want to hear conversations at the next table.

They skimp on the olives and tomatoes in the salads too.

Not going back anymore. Just not worth the money.

“Great Food, But Extremely Noisey!”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

If you want a nice, Italian, fast food meal, here is the place to go. No atmosphere whatsoever, large open rooms with lots of noise from other diners. No problem with seating usually, off-season, otherwise very crowded. Love the, all-you-can-eat salad brought to your table! Food is good, atmosphere is lacking, noise is atrocious! Good place to go if you feel lonely, lots of people, lots of noise! We go very seldom because of this!
