We were a bit apprehensive about our visit for our party of 9. We waited at least 20 minutes for our table to be set up even though the restaurant was only less than 10 percent occupied by customers. I had to ask twice about our table. On the second request, we were finally told they were waiting for the waitstaff. However, several people came afterward and were seated right away. We finally were seated, but no apologies were expressed for the wait. Overall, the food was good, but the chicken parmigiana was not good. Dry with a bad taste. Service was good and we enjoyed the bread sticks and salad. The restaurant looked clean. Will be a long time to return.

We've stopped eating-in here due to long waits during typical dining hours. So this review is for take out. We've had take out 3 times in the last several months and in each case it seems we were sold stale breadsticks and entrees all seemed microwaved rather than baked. The quality was reminiscent of what I'd expect from the grocery freezer section. Will not be back any time soon.

We were told 25 minutes, but was only 10 minutes to get seated. Our server Danny was excellent. He checked on us throughout the the meal, was accommodating with our extra wishes and wished me well & happy birthday! Must have overheard :) The food was awesome, hot and speady! The portions were big and was able to take some home.

Love this place! I called on the way to reserve a spot so we got in right when we got there. Waitress was amazing, and food was phenomenal! I had the margarita chicken and it was so good. I also had the frozen strawberry-mango margarita to go with it. The bartender brought it right over so it wasn't all melted! So so good! I will definitely be returning! Oh even got tirmisu for free for our anniversary!

Everything we tried has been delicious and the portions are large enough to share. The prices are high so we split meals. The desserts are wonderful especially the lemon cake, the chocolate cheese cake. The staff is friendly and efficient.
