“Just okay.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

I had spaghetti with meatballs. The sauce was nothing special but the three meatballs were very good. Decent portion size.

My wife had an okay steak and cheese sub except it had too much rosemary seasoning. Old standards need to stay standard.

Prices weren't bad. May return but probably will head to Spartans instead.

New restaurant...wife & I went in and were seated at a table for four...ordered an iced tea, a water and a large peperoni pizza...they would NOT serve a large Pizza to the table...the manager came by and apologized saying the menu was printed incorrectly, and the table was no big enough to handle a 16" pizza...the large pizzas were "To Go Only"...I asked them to bring me a large to go and they would not do that to the table...YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME...A PIZZA PLACE THAT WILL NOT SERVE YOU A LARGE PIZZA TO THE TABLE!!! Ended up ordering a medium...the pizza came quickly but was nothing special...I will not go back...nor order a pizza to go!!!

“Media”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stopped by on a Friday evening to try the new Italian restaurnt in town. We were shown to our table and upon being seated we were pounced on by our waitress. She proceded to give us a Point Point Presentation of the menu, first the the wine selection, which we had no intention of ordering, then almost through the entire menu. We chose the Veal Parmesan, and Pollo con Prosciutto. The Veal was as the same as any other in the area nothing different. The stuffed chicken breast was lagre and the stuffing was not very flavorful Since it a new restaurant maybe they haven't gotten the bugs out yet. We hope it will get better with age.
