Nice place. We really enjoyed the amazing garlic bread. It's buttery and it has fresh minced garlic on it. My meal came with a house salad that had the better mixed greens. The house salad dressing was really good too.

My wife and I ate here with some friends of ours. The food was fantastic - all 4 orders. Our service was also very good. Maybe a little on the high side for price but worth it.
