Tucked away in the Decatur Airport terminal, you will find this excellent locally owned restaurant. Food in excellent, service is great. Every time we fly into Decatur this is a must stop for us. Believe you will enjoy as well.

We have never eaten at this place before but definitely will go back! The Eggplant Parmesan was to die for. Salad was delicious as were the bread sticks with EVOO. Wait staff was right on. What a gem!

Ate breakfast here this morning, we have flown in and eaten breakfast here several times and always got great food and great service. Today we had to wait almost an hour on our food. I am pretty petite and I HAVE to eat something for breakfast….we waited so long I started getting sick and my husband had to go in search of SOMETHING for me to eat, he came back with some crackers, it was all they would give him. I could not even get my coffee refilled, he had to go in search of coffee for me too. The restaurant was NOT busy. The few tables around us that were occupied were all complaining because none of them were getting timely food either. This is especially a problem at an airport, where many people are on tight schedules! When we FINALLY got our food it was great, tasty and hot, but by then the experience was sorta ruined. We agreed if we go again we’ll bring some food with us in case we have a nother long wait. Seems like we should not have to plan to so this at a RESTAURANT!

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback and letting us know of your displeasure on our locally owned and operated business. We realize we are far from perfect and wanted to let you know that we will continue to work hard and improve the restaurant in all areas as we continue forward. Thank you for giving us a chance, we hope you try us again in the near future.
