I have to agree with the other reviews regarding the service. It is excellent and they are most friendly. We also had a very short wait time for our food. Just an old-fashioned, homey restaurant.

Good standard italian fare. The homemade salad dressings were particularly tasty. My chicken was good, the lasagna was OK. The desserts, however, were something else! Both the tiramisu and the lemon cake were superb.

I came with a larger party so the server couldn't be as attentive as i would have hoped. The food was fantastic though. I had the Eggplant Parmesan. So good. The restaurant was a little dark but, it's perfect for a romantic night out.

Delicious Italian off the main street. Cozy atmosphere with great food, but, by far, what makes this place most excellent is the service. Our group of seven were quickly sat on Thursday evening at 6:00 pm. The menu was filled with excellent option- it was hard to decide! The pasta dishes was delicious the pasta would melt in your mouth.... More

Come hungry, your meal comes with complimentary bread and salad with healthy servings of each. I was pleased with my choice of house Merlot and lasagna.

Better than Olive garden, maybe, but not particularly memorable. Kind of typical , mid level, Italian. Not great, but not bad.

If it weren't for our server Cory, we would not have liked this restaurant at all. He was so pleasant and happy to answer any questions, he made up for the long wait for our food and not so great food. First, I was so anxious to try the salad dressing and rolls everyone raved about on Tripadvisor. The rolls... More

We were in town for conventions with some of our friends, we heard good things about this place so we decided to try it. Since there was 6 people in our party the tip was added on the bill no matter how BAD the service was. The food was good, but the service was the worst. This was not some... More
