We had someone tell us this was a good place and reading the reviews would make it a good bet. But, that would be a bet you'd lose - unless you have taste buds that committed suicide anticipating eating here. The best part of the experience was the bread and water - and the water was not even filtered well. Calamari was about on par with Red Lobster's, though the tentacles were better and crunchy and not feeling like a chewy rubber hose.
My wife's minestrone was nothing that Campbell's wouldn't beat.
I always order the simplest thing at a new Italian restaurant and figure if you can't make spaghetti and meatballs, then there is no point getting anything else. I almost gagged when I saw a watery light orange sauce (not Vodka sauce, but it resembled it) covering the thin spaghetti (not regular spaghetti). It tasted just as good as it looked. Cafeteria spaghetti would normally be better. The meatballs were fairly familiar and were something that you could get in a freezer at Sam's or Costco.
My wife had a slightly better experience, but was somewhat disconcerted to see her eggplant parmegiana having baked eggplant, not fried. The best thing about it was at least the cheese over the top was tasty.
You can believe the other reviews, but if you really love the Italian food like most of us knew from Jersey or New York, then do yourself a favor and stay away from this place.
