“Pretty Average Italian-American Dining”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

This would have been an average rating if they didn't aspire to finer dining levels with their pricing, menu and signage.

The menu was all over the map (of Italy) and you pretty much can tell with a big menu like that they do a lot, none of it well. They had us in a really dingy side room with dirty floors and chintzy decor. The chicken parm was pretty much on par with a jar sauce like Ragu and progresso bread crumbs, nothing special. My dining partner had the chicken picatta, which was similarly underwhelming.

Just disappointing to see Italian done so poorly.

“terrible service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

rudest waitress we've ever had. we actually didn't leave a tip, which we hardly ever do. the food is okay for americanized italian food and is better than the other italian options in town, but we never went back after that service experience. i mean the woman was just flat out rude.

“Great price, great food”

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the Days Inn across the street and decided to try it out. We were really pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food. Delicious. Our waitress was extremely friendly, also.

“Old fashioned red sauce rest.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Had the lasagna. Marginal huge chunk, rather bland. Looked like most of the plates were red sauces. We won't go back
but maybe if we had something else?

“Awesome”

Amazing Itailian all around.. Great service, seated quickly, and great pasta. Closest to Italy you'll find in this part of the United States.
