I saw a review - terrible customer service? Not on OUR watch it wasn't - it was very, very good. Server, hostess and other staff were all very nice. Shrimp Medici was good, steak and shrimp, steaks were perfect! Shrimp was 'ok' she said. Chocolate...More

Couples dinner before the theater. First time here, so I tried the Lasagna as a standard to compare with many Italian restaurants we have visited. Table bread rolls were average with no dipping sauce or oil. Salad was mixed greens & 1 tomato slice only....seriously?!?...More

If you want to go to a restaurant that values their customers even a little, avoid this place. They showed how much they don't care.

This place has been around a long time. It has had its ups and downs in my experience, but is solid and dependable now and won't disappoint. A good place for a business lunch. Good unobtrusive service. Ample portions. Give them a try!

Truthfully, the best. Not overcooked but done. Great lunch dish. I get this often and it has been good everything. The owner is here and that makes a difference.

Wanted Italian food. Was downtown for business. Looked like a quaint spot with good, close parking (a rare commodity). Front end girl was wonderful, polite, attentive, but the dude waiting our table should really stick to washing dishes. His appearance was pitiful, cargo shorts and...More
