I stayed at a hotel across the street and I ordered from here. the food was ready when I got there, it was all correct and the staff were very friendly. It was super busy and nobody was left unnoticed. Great job!!!!

I really like this restaurant, the pizza is very well prepared and most of the menu items are delicious. Good Italian food and good wine.

Felt forgotten and unimportant. Long wait for a salad that never showed up...Entre was OK ... Was all you could east pasta night but after the first plate..was asked would I like my bill. and that was after a considerable wait. Had to remind about dessert.. Considering how much the bill added up to....I will not return.

Why complicate things. I love a good salad with a nice dressing, he likes to try new entrees. The new chicken PARMIGIANA sandwich was delicious and the service was great.
