“My Favorite Place!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is really a good place all-around. You can meet friends here and enjoy Pizza and a glass of wine, or bring a date, or just be with the family. The atmosphere is casual but you can go dressed up too.
The menu is large and varied. The salads are really good, so is the pizza.
All the entrees are good. You can choose seafood, pasta, meat or specialty items. The prices are moderate.

The service is rather testy- and you may have to be patient. But everyone is always polite and friendly.
I recommend this for a nice evening out, with good food in a nice place. It's close to the Parkway too.

“Great bread and salad, horrible staff.”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

I love the gorgonzolas salad. Their house dressing is my favorite in the world!! Creamy, tangy, and just delicious. The staff in the pick-up area is horribly rude. Between what seems to be a manager and the 15 year old boys who could care less about their jobs... They make it a hassle to get your food. But once again, GREAT salad and pasta options.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I have lived in the area forever and recently discovered this restaurant. Their house salad is amazing. The chicken parm is terrific. Now you think you can't eat healthy here?? Not true, the have grilled salmons that is served with spinach and cannelloni beans, one of the best dishes I have ever had! It's not a fancy place but its wonderful. A new favorite for us.

“Fun Atmosphere, Average Food”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

I liked the environment but the food was just average. The service was good but food was over salted and lacked any real pizzazz.
