Were were a family of 9 on a satuday evening with non reservation and were sit and serve quickly. Nice variaty of soft italian drink that our kids enjoyed (free refill), except the cherry flavor.
Nice giant TV and food was delicious. We all have two-for-one special which made us save quite a lot!

This restaurant was near our hotel. The lasagna was many layers high, rich and filing. The warm bread they bring out is delicious! My wife loved the Chicken Balsamico and thought it was better than my lasagna - she was right. Try the meal deal that includes a salad and dessert. Service was helpful and friendly. Only complaint was the noise level. A large party near us was LOUD. We could have been seated in a quieter location.

Truly, I would have given this restaurant an excellent rating if not for the lazy service we received at our visit. Our server started out promising - came right away to take our drink and appetizer orders, served them promptly, and that was that. It was not exceeding busy in there for a Thursday night, so it isn't because she was overwhelmed with customers. We could see our dinners sitting up on the counter for quite a while, while our waitress was missing in action. Once the dinners were brought to us, that was the last we saw of her, until she showed up twice to ask if we wanted dessert, and when we had to beg for our check so we could leave. She did, however, take the time to write down on our bill the tip percentages, which I found rather bold of her after not paying attention to us for the majority of the time.
Moving on, let's talk about the food, which was excellent. We had the fried calamari and caprese salad to start with and both were perfect and very fresh. You have the option of ordering things more family style, so with the entrees my friend and I shared the pasta carbonara and the chicken scallopini. Both were perfectly cooked (albeit not very hot after sitting on the kitchen counter for a while), and delicious. Due to lack of service and attention, we did not bother with dessert, which we most certainly would've given a try if only we didn't have to wait so long inbetween visits from our server.
The key to a good restaurant lies not only in the food served but also the service you receive. Hopefully, should we decide to return to this restaurant, the service will be much better.
