Restaurant details
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had tried to eat here on two other occaisions (both on weekends) and saw there were long waiting times. I refuse to wait for chain restaurants. This time we tried it on a Monday night and were seated immediately. Service is fairly slow and inattentive. It took about 15 minutes to bring the soup. Waitress rarely stopped by to see if we wanted anything. Main courses were mixed. My Venetian Apricot Chicken was very good and my wife had a shrimp dish that was very bland. The desserts were pretty good, but my espresso was cold. The price was reasonable, but I would never wait on line to eat here.

Its the Truth as we know it and it's Lunch time at Olive Garden.
Ok take your empty stomachs here and go for the unlimited soup & salad for under $10
Staff were great and friendly
2 for $25 is a great deal and a great choice of food.
Truth is for real.

Service is usually good, food is satisfying and plentiful with some even better specials now and then. Nice selection of wines and even the house wine is good. You can get a sample taste before you order it. Most desserts are delicious, but stay away from the zeppoles.
