We were seated quickly for not having a reservation on a Saturday night, the waitstaff had a problem deciding on who should take care of us, apparently the young man who was assigned our area didn't want to bother with two older women. Luckily the young woman who became our waitstaff was pleasant, knowledgeable, if a bit harried by all... More

I am in charge of a group of ladies who dine out monthly together. I never know exactly how many will attend. I reserved for 8 this month and 9 showed up and the servers gave us several possible table arrangements. Several of us tried the early bird lasagna, but another had stuffed mushrooms, one had an enormous rib eye... More

We made a reservation, we dined early, on an off day. As such the restaurant was not super busy, which allowed our server to be fairly attentive. We all ordered something with pasta. There were two Italians in our group, who thought the food was pretty good. Portions were about right for the price. It was good, but nothing super... More

Restaurant was clean and welcoming. There were 8 of us with all different food choices most everyone enjoyed there meals but myself, I ordered eggplant rollitini with pasta it was just ok. Sauce had no flavor at all very bland rollitini was over cooked with ricotta and some green leafy veggie.

Steak was more fat than meat. Pork chops huge and delicious. Seafood platter was quite good. Service of meals at the bar is the best

Was not happy with the service. Not sure if they were short staffed but waited about 20 minutes for anyone to acknowledge our table. The bartender was also our server. Prices were expensive for what you got. Not a happy customer.

Good calamari. Excited to find a place near our house. Won't be able to come back because Alex is terrible behind the bar.

I did not received what I order but the time they came back I was told you have said something when they left my dinner! But when they run away and don't come back for 5 minutes or so! Told them I was told they had new cooks! Not a good excuse!!! Probably will not be back!!!!

Sorry about that going to start again. Mrs. J and I decided that we were going to stop by this restaurant after having driven by it many times. Mrs J really liked her cosmo; cheesecake decaf coffee and the reasonable prices. Her veal Marsala was wonderful great taste. My Veal Picata was good , but if we return I'll go... More
