“Good Food, Good Service, Good Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

I go here on business several times a year. The people are great, the service is good, and the drinks are good.

I am not a huge Italian fan, but they do a good job. Prices seem very reasonable, compared to others. Happy hour is good. They have a very nice bar area.

Customers love it, and I keep coming back.

“Great Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

This restaurant offers a variety of lunch specials and has a wine down Wednsday in which wine is on sale. They have a great Bellini for a drink and the food is always fresh. They also have mini desserts which are perfect for ending the meal. The tirimisu is fantastic.

“Definitely not worth the money.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

Food was poor, ( basic spaghetti and meat sauce tasted like it was sour).
Service was below average and price was way too much for quality of food.
