we had great service and food. Our first time there and wasn't sure if it'd be good or not because it's in a strip mall. It was very good I had the eggplant and my friends had the salmon. All was great and our waiter was so helpful. My husband is very tall and the table he sat us at didn't fit his legs so after he poured the water and all we asked him if there was a different table he moved us and was extremely nice about it. Highly recommend.

If you're craving good Italian food, OC is not the place. This time we dined at the new Monkey Junction location. Other than the calamari appetizer and the bread pudding desert, our entrees were quite tasteless. We started with a Caesar salad that lacked enough dressing to be a mere bowlful of lettuce. My wife and I ordered chicken and shrimp Francaise. Both dishes were laden with a thick sauce with a hint of lemon, but quite tasteless. The sauce had rendered the egg batter to be mushy and the bed of spinach was overcooked and slimy. The service was quite neglectful for our party of six in the overcrowded "dinning hall." As an Italian restaurant the OC dreadfully fails and can't even pass for mediocre hospital dining.

Although we enjoyed the atmosphere of OC, the food was underwhelming. I got the chicken saltimbocca or scallopine and it was a lot thicker, greasier, and more breaded than I imagined it would be. The bed of spinach it was served on was quite tasty though. The chicken itself was not that flavorful.

The wine selection was more low-mid range price & quality. The service was OK, not great.

I will try other Italian restaurants next time we're in Wilmington.

taken there for dinner with friends, would definitely return if I still lived there, extensive menu, great fast service, not too loud, reasonable prices, different veal marsala, dark gravy this time, veal piled on top of wilted spinach, great bread for eating all the gravy. good wine and beer list
