The food was pretty good and the price was reasonable. I am a very tough critic when it comes to Italian food because I am still looking for that perfect place. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would give Yards so a 7....More

We have been going there for many years. We love it. When family members that live in other states come to visit they always insist that we go there.

I took the grandson to Yarussos for Italian, and tried the lunch buffet. The selection was adequate, and the food was passable.I had memories of past visits with delicious sauces and lip smacking chicken and spaghetti--but the memories aren't supported by the present day facts.
