Large servings and 25% off if you order before 6:30. Service was fast, we ordered and food was out quickly. Pizza was good, pasta was nice, chicken parmigiana large and taste was good. No complaints.

The portion sizes are generous, but the food unfortunately is a little bland. The chicken risotto needed salt or more cheese. The spaghetti marinara was okay but also needed something (salt? Basil?). The kids Hawaiian pizza came out with no pineapple and was so dry...More
