This is not a real Italian restaurant. Used to be years ago but has went very downhill. Portions are small. Very pricey. Tastes like frozen items reheated, not a real Italian restaurant to me. I'm very Italian so I know Italian food. Wait staff is very young and just don't care. They don't go out of your way for you.... More

First time for dinner, and everyone was right about the "Fixed" sauce - it was delicious. We had the Tuscan Chicken Fettucini and the Chicken with Lemon and Artichoke hearts, Both very good and large portions - had to take some home. Traded in the dinner salad for a Caesar and that was very good, too. Jade, our waitress, let... More

Came here with a friend for lunch. We ate outside because the weather was perfect. We were greeted by our friendly waitress who brought us our drinks immediately. We split a grilled chicken sandwich and had a side salad to go with it. Everything was yummy. The sandwich was huge. So glad we split the sandwich. The chicken was tender... More

We had a small but great lunch with Italian Meatballs salad bread and beer. Bread was out of this world, so fresh. Staff great I would have loved an evening meal here but we ran out of time on our visit.
