I wanted an Italian dish that wasn't on the menu called Spaghetti Aglio Olio. The manager knew what I was talking about and made it for me! It was fantastic! Best I've had in years! Thanks Brian!

Lasagna was great. The wine was great. The bread was great and hot. Split the lasagna and added a salad and bowl of minestrone (which was great). $31 for dinner for 2.

16 layer lasagna how can you go wrong? Also had calamari and a salad with good service. Food was piping hot

We went once on a late evening it was very slow with very few people in there but still pretty slow service. Food was just ok. We weren't impressed and defiantly will go to Olive Garden instead. Its ok but could be a personal preference.

I enjoy the atmosphere, the open floor plan, the food and the wine. I usually get the Spicy Shrimp and Chicken, which is one of the specials. Always good. The service is attentive but unobtrusive.

Quick seating on a busy night, good service, comfortable atmosphere, kids seats and crayons are available. Only negative was the chicken used --tastes like the cheap antibiotic and hormone filled kind you can buy in the market that is tough, bland and dense..

Overall is was good. Nice loaf of bread to start off with dipping oil. My wife's meal was good but my pizza was not the best at all. Fair amount of toppings but the crust was not cooked. I am not big on raw dough...More

I have to agree with another customer, the warm bread and oil dip was great. I had a lunch pasta which was very good. Nice house salad too. The waitress was friendly and attentive. Very clean throughout. Easy parking too.

They have a great menu selection. The dishes are prepared fresh so no soggy pasta. The sauces are flavorful and the food comes fairly fast and hot. Staff are very friendly. Good drink selection.

Right off I 94 this appears to be a favorite of locals. Family oriented and a little on the loud side. Quick service and decent Italian fare.
