Went there for a birthday party with 17 people. The service was good, the food not so much. The meatballs were cold. The stuffed shrimp had no taste. I asked for angel hair pasta, I was told they ran out!!! The bathroom was a whole other story, I even went up to the hostess and asked if they can clean... More

We went here for a family lunch and were very happy with both the service the food and the cleanliness. We didn't make a reservation and came as a last minute walkin. We ordered family-style it came with two types of salad. One was a house salad and one was a Caesar salad both were very good and well seasoned.... More

We were all very excited when we walked in. Plenty of parking and restaurant was decorated nicely. Service was not good, and food was worse. As a family it was unamiously agreed we would never return.

The food is ok. If you are looking for Italian food that isn't too expensive, it's not a bad place to go. It is no better or worse than chicken parm you can get at your local pizzeria.

I got the pizza and it was very good, but a small cost me $17. The beer selection was above average and the atmosphere was good. My friend got the salmon and it was a bit dry. I'd go for good Italian, but don't think it's going to be cheap.

The food was better than average, flavorful but not salty, the decor still in the 80's, needs updating.

Old tyme Italian food. Sauces vary by chef; but place is large and can be noisy at times.Offers a good variety of types of macaroni; portions are large. Salads are large as well but could be chopped into smaller pieces.

Had a salad and pizza...salad was terrible (big pieces of lettuce and way too much beets), but pizza was good. Menu is overwhelming...stick with the pizza. Must say though ice cream cake (for dessert) was magnificent!
