The food was fantastic, but our server really made the meal worth it. She was fast, friendly, funny, took great care of the kids. And she knows her stuff. Will definitely be back to see her, and have another Italian Margarita ;)

We love the all you can eat soup & salad with unlimited breadsticks. Everything is good, especially the Gnocki soup (pron: no-key).
