Exceptional experience for the money. Portion size was large. Pasta was a touch overdone but not bad. Parmagianna was very good. Service top notch. Overall a great value for the money.

Portions are big, food is quite tasty, fabulous service. Great menus choices. When the restaurant is lined out the door it takes a while to get a table.

We go here about once a year and every time we go we comment on how the franchise has gone way down hill. The garlic home loaf has no flavour to it, the salad is always stale and rusty, and the food is horrible. The...More
