“Average - nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

I hadn't realised this was part of a chain, not that that would have led us to eat elsewhere necessarily. Anyway, this is a huge restaurant but they were only using a small section when we visited mid week.

The plethora of menus was confusing and our server clearly had a script she had to go through with us - we prefer a more laid back approach.

The portion sizes were huge - food was average; nothing wrong with it, but it wasn't anything special. The place itself was lacking in atmosphere and considering they were overstaffed for the number of diners, drinks didn't arrive until we had nearly finished our starters - it was almost as though everyone was trying to keep busy, but the communication between them wasn't so great so some things were getting missed.

“Predictable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

It is not great italian food, but it is predictable. You always know what you get when you drop by for lunch or dinner. Not a lot of options for Italian food in Yakima, so this is a safe bet. Good service in the Yakima location.

“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Went there for my birthday a party of 10 the waiter was ok she forgot to bring us bread sticks when we asked we needed refills but took her 30 minutes for that. Then when we got our checks everything was wrong, & we told her this is 4 different tickets. So we had to sit there fixing our own checks. Plus she add 8 bucks for herself for a tip (on all the checks) 32 $$ tip. She ain't that good. But there food is sooo good. Now if only they trained the waiters better" it will be great... yes I will go back. Its that good.
