Food here is good. The pasta, meatballs, chicken parm and risotto are all good. The Broccoli rabe needs better prep. The pizza is just ok. The service last night was not so great. Always had to ask for things like refills on drinks. My daughter...More

Really liked the bar area. We sat in dinning room and all 4 meals were decent. Wait staff was nice but over worked. They had to many tables to work. Which means they need help. Other than that. Would recommend.
