First off - GR8 Lunch. However, let's discuss the suggested tip amount @ the bottom of the bill. My bill was $30.17. $28.46 in food and $1.71 in tax. The tip is on food, not tax/total bill. Their suggested tip amount of $4.53 was 15% of the WHOLE bill, tax included. NOT CORRECT. 15% would actually be on $28.46, or... More

The waitress took our order. I think she was new because she wasn't familiar with the menu. We waited 1/2 hour...no drinks, breadsticks or salad. A table of 5 came in 20 min after us. WITHIN 10 min they had their drinks, breadsticks and already eating their salads. Our waitress was no where to be found. MAYBE she went home.... More

Chicken Carbonara was a little greasy. Waiter was very friendly and efficient. Not busy around 6 in the evening on a Thursday.

There were very youthful and charismatic entertainers whose joy was contagious. The waiters and waitresses excelled in good manners and seamless service. I can't wait to visit them again in the near future!

This place has always been great. We have been going here for lunch for the past at least 6 years and have never had any problems.

Restaurant was clean. We were seated promptly and order taken quickly. Food arrived before we even got to begin eating the salad. Food was hot. Waitress was very pleasant. If paying by credit card there is a wireless connection which handles everything right at the table. Waitress was willing to assist if we encountered any difficulty with the wireless device....

Called ahead for a reservation for 8 for dinner. Polite and efficient staff took the reservation. Upon arrival, our table was set and we were expected. Our server was a hoot! He was friendly and really engaged the grandchildren. He took an order for 8 people with drinks and food details without taking a note. All dinners arrived as ordered.... More

Had a very good wait person considering it was 9:30 at night and they closed at 10:00. She was polite helpful and courteous. Should have ordered angel hair as the spaghetti was thick. Meatballs were very good as was salad and breadsticks.

I enjoyed the meal as always. The only negative was that our waiter was not as friendly as some of the others.
