This place is okay at best. The hostess is not very friendly and in fact somewhat rude.

The service is painfully slow. The food was very bland and lacked flavor.

This place has so many opportunities to grow their business just if they would pay attention to customers and to serving their customers.

This is a chain and as such it is not bad. The food is generally good but the pasta is often overcooked. They are very accommodating and they are a good resource for catering.

5 of us went for lunch during the week right at peak time. Though the hostess was nowhere to be found, the bartender saw us from across the restaurant and decided to take us for himself. He kindly put 2 tables in the bar area together for us and eventhough he seemed to be very busy, he was always prompt, friendly and didn't mess up a single order. The food was delicious, heavy and rich portions for lunch, but who could beat the price for what you ended up with. We skipped on dessert but we were all pleased with the ambiance , the food and the best thing of all...THE SERVICE! Oh, and he made a perfect italian margarita and cosmopolitan. Thank you Mr. Bartender!

This is a OK place to go. I have found that their entries are kinda rich. Guess it's what you order but not crazy about the place. When I go I stick to their salads now. Love their bread and olive oil...yum. I visit normally for lunch. Not one of the places we get excited about for lunch which we eat out a lot at lunch. Does have a great atmosphere and have always had great service.
