“Better than most mall food stops”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

This has long been a family tradition which we have shared with friends. You can either order at the counter and eat in the middle of the mall (which is a tiny shopping mall as these things go) or you can sit in the restaurant. It is a popular place at dinner so be prepared for a line. The food is good and plentiful. We like their pizzas and salads. Subs have way too much bread or maybe way too little filling; don't bother with them.

“Decent Casual Italian Place in an Area with Few Choices”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

I should qualify that we usually only go here when there's a coupon available for a buy-one-entree-get-one-at-half-price deal available. For the money, they have provided us with acceptable pasta and pizza. Nothing amazing, but again, acceptable. I almost always order their Chicken-Eggplant Parmigiana, which I find to be pretty good. An ordinary side salad and side of spaghetti come with the meal, along with bread, and this combo usually has me leaving satisfied, even given my big appetite. The Mrs. usually orders the Chicken Tetrazzini, which has plain chunks of chicken, a buttery sauce, and which is saved from being boring by the addition of some pieces of red pepper. If they could offer cheaper glasses of house wine, this would be a more regular place for us to grab a quick, casual Italian meal at a place not too far from home.

“Reasonably priced but avoid if you are in a hurry”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

Lunch specials are reasonably priced, but the service was extremely slow especially for 2 cold sandwiches and soup.
