“Yummy Food, Comfortable Decor, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

We had our second visit to this restaurant and were not disappointed. The food is tasty, reasonably priced, the decor is comfortable and the staff is friendly.

One suggestion I would offer is to turn down the volume a little on the background music. It's hard to visit with other guests since it's a bit loud. I personally prefer background music that compliments the atmosphere without drowning out conversation.

I'm sure we will return here. My family enjoys the food! :-)

“Good family meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We had a good family meal at a great price and with a lot of leftovers. The macaroni and cheese on the kids menu is out of this world. This needs to be offered on the regular family menu! By far the best mac n cheese I have ever tasted. We shared a ceasar salad, garlic bread, and baked ziti. The only suggestion is to get extra sauce for the baked ziti because it ends up dry after the baking process. Consistently great service, good portion sizes, and a fun atmosphere!

“Delicious,filling, and fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

56 of us loved our dinner, and the decor. Such "It"alian fun. Old "blue eyes" Sinatra is present in each dining area... Between the food,the memorabilia on the walls and the staff, this is a fantastic dinner experience.

“Fun and Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I found the family style service to be a wonderful change. It works well for couples and even better for groups. Nothing fancy, just good Italian food and service. And the atmosphere is a hoot.

“Terrible experience at burnsville location”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

Went for late lunch Xmas day as we needed to be in the cities. Not busy at the time. Wait staff was very anxious to clear plates from appetizer to end of meal. Again not busy enough to warrant fast turn around approach. Veg. Lasagna was completely frozen in middle while plates were hot. Penne pasta dish had distinct burned flavor.
Very poor food for price and microwaved.
