“Go for lunch - you won't need dinner!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Visited for lunch. 2 adults - 2 teens.

Pretty good selection of various pastas, seafood, beef carving station, mashed potatoes, gravy, veggies, pizzas. Stick with the italian dishes - definately what they do best. Ribs were tough and roast been was on the dry side. Pasta's were delicious. Lovely breads and pizzas as well. Small but adequate salade bar with 2 soup offerings. Food in the buffet was surprisingly hot. We actually burnt our mouth on the roasted potatos. Nice that they can keep the food this warm without it being dried out.

Small dessert bar - but everything was delicious. Ice creams, puddings, cakes, tarts, brownies, squares etc.

Family of four (adults) total bill $85.00 plus tip. We only had water to drink so that was just for the meal. Sounds a little steep for lunch but we definately don't need dinner.

Had a reservation and didn't have any wait at all for a table during a Saturday lunch time. Server was very nice and cleared plates quickly and left a jug of water for refils.

Hubby's birthday and they brought over a piece of cake with a candle and sang happy birthday - nice!

Decor is nice and washrooms were clean.

Thoroughly enjoyed this meal and would return.

“My favourite since childhood!”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

I have been going to this place (well this franchise) since I was a child. Awesome service, awesome food, great atmosphere, and at a reasonable price. The restaurant itself looks like an italian piazza. Plus, its an italian food buffet! Can't go wrong!

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We pulled off the highway and found this place. My wife hates buffets and rolled her eyes when she saw thats what this was. But we were pleasantly surprised. This isnt your average golden corral type buffet. The italian specialities were excellent...pasta alla vodka cooked al dente, triple cheese ravioli, lasagna, etc. But then add in tons of other speciality opions such as pork loin carved by the chef, succulent goat stew, roasted chicken, a complete bar of seafood choices done excellently and also a vegetarian bar...roasted eggplant, grilled zuccini, cous cous and so on. The decor is nice enough as well, like a nicer chain such as macaroni grill. Its not fine dining but its good dining....we'd come back for sure.
