I wet to this place with two of my friend and right from the entrance we could understand that this place is really desirable. It was full of people and we had to wait for a table- that a good sign.
I order and alfredo pasta with a steak, the pasta with the sauce was one of the best I ever had, but the steak was less then average.
The service is quick but it missing some kind of "worm touch". it's like getting served by the stepford wives.

All and all I enjoyed. I sure recommend people to try this restaurant.

Dinner was great! Chose to eat at the bar with the family since there was a 30 minute wait time for dining tables. Was able to carry a conversation with some friends we ran into at the bar. Football game was on the tv, but it wasn't loud.

Usually fave for good pasta, wine and salad. Prices re good, usually packed at lunch in weekends. During the week can go to the bar and eat quickly and without waiting line. Do not expect any special treatment as no tomato in the pasta or whatever special requirement you need, they are to busy. But if you are willing to order regular from the menu you will be happy and the total to pay will be quite low.
All pasta dishes are good, now smaller than they used to be, including the salad bowl.
Still the chocolate mints are free.

for the most part was great - we had one really bad nite though, with a waiter who seemed very put out to be dealing with a group of 10 business people who needed separate checks. the management definitely made up for that though!

Never disappoints. Great food and atmosphere. Wait staff is great. They have torn down the hotel next door so parking was a nightmare.
