We went there for Valentines. Had wood fired pizza that was excellent. The only negative I have to say is they didn't have large print menus so my Husband had some difficulty reading the menu. We plan on going back.

Second time at this restaurant. Better than the first time. I had the sausage skillet dinner and it was the bomb. The family also enjoyed their entrees and deserts. We sat in quiet alcove and the service was Devine.

I often meet friends here for lunch. Food quality is consistently excellent. I love the soups and salads as well as many of the entrees. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. Prices are reasonable.

Much better than generic Olive Garden. I like the atmosphere, the menu, the bar, and the wait staff!

Not what we expected. Food was ok. Service not ad good. Very noisy. A cup of coffee will set you back 2.49 hmm. A chain and they charge that much for coffee?
