Had lunch here on way home from Minnesota on Saturday after Thanksgiving. Arrived just after 11 and were seated immediately. All the food was excellent and the waitress did a great job. Easy checkout with table top machine. When we left the crowds had developed and were people waiting for tables so our arrival time was well chosen.

This restaurant was very clean and inviting. From the hostess to the bus boy, all were friendly and polite, greeting you with a smile and cheery hello. The food came out hot. My lunch included all you can eat soup and salad. When I told the waitress that I just wanted the lasagna and didn't want to pay for soup... More

Pasta was way over cooked, sauce flavor tasted like it was out of a jar or a powder mix. At least the chicken was well cooked. Soup, salad and bread sticks were spot on, thankfully. House Moscato was pretty good too.

My daughter and I had lunch here. I had the Gluten Free Rotini with meat sauce and she had the Five Cheese Ziti. We both added chicken to our dishes. Mine did not need it as the sauce had plenty of meat. Both were really good. The server was excellent too. I paid using the table computer, and was talking... More

The food was ok, nothing out of the ordinary. We had cheese ravioli and chicken Alfredo. We ordered the special buy one item, take one home. Unfortunately when we got home we realized we were missing one entree. The biggest disappointment was a $1.99 charge on the bill for a table game that we did not use. I also dislike... More

Delicious! Efficient friendly service. The Sicilian cheesecake was to die for. Love the pay at the table option.

The food is OK chain fare. What I didn't care for was the fact that we were overcharged for our entrees. The menu prices were $3.00 more on the bill. Top that off with the fact that their "tip guide" is not a true percentage estimate. This place was busy. Hope that other people are not taken advantage of.
