“Great location off I-15 & Via Rancho Pkwy, Escondido, CA”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

A chain restaurant, serving great Italian food dishes, including Flatbread Pizza, large salads, and more. Located in the parking area next to the North County Shopping Center. Good reliable service. As a suggeston for dinner, try to arrive before 5:30pm for a short or no waiting to be seated. We did on a Wednesday early evening and were seated immediately. Our server was very helpful on dinner selections.

“They do a nice job”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

Better than Olive Garden by a mile. They know how to prepare calamari so it is tender and not rubbery. The chicken scallopini was quite good, though wish they had veal as well.

Save room for the chocolate cake dessert which is served as a warm cake with fudge and whipped cream on the side.

Tab for family of four was $102 with 1 appetizer, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts (without alcohol)

“Perfect Lunch Stop”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

Food is consistently tasty and there is plenty of it. The loaf of bread is outstanding. Service is very good and prices are modest.

“Dependable for good food.”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Started with $3 wine for happy hour and two appetizers for $9. Fried Zucchini was sliced very thin, almost potato chip crispness. Good, but the zucchini flavor gets lost. Goat cheese stuffed sweet peppers were excellent. The dinner entrees were excellent, brought some home. I had the sampler platter featured on the summer menu. My friends enjoyed Cannelloni and Chicken Parmesan. We all left sated and happy. Will be returning.

“Great Food for Franchised Italian Place & Great Service”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

Wow, it sounds great. What did you like about it? I really appreciate how customer service oriented they are from the GM to the server. The hot piping Italian bread they bring out at the beginning is always mouth-watering and you will want more...only if you are human.I have enjoyed all the different dishes as well as the appetizers & drinks.
