Good Italian food as well as steaks, etc. They have great specials for two or a family. They have multiple tv's to watch sports and a bar to relax in if you're not dining (or even if you are!).

One our local restaurant we visit for family birthdays or when we're in the mood for happy hour. We like their $5 wines! Plus peanuts galore. Great price, of course it's not fine wine, it's five bucks!

Two waiters and one runner were handling the entire restaurant on a VERY busy night. They did a fairly good job, but it was a little too frantic to really enjoy the evening. An Italian restaurant with no antipasto? Not good. Pizza served in a...More
