First the disclaimer - let me say we cook and eat Italian, we've eaten Italian in Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Italy. For most this is a good value and a good meal.
Pro's = the house (red) wine was much better than one would expect. the salad was fresh and delicious, the bread was a bit bland but good. Olive oil and balsamic is on the table. Serving sizes are generous. Service was good, staff was friendly. Prices reasonable. Good views of water across from parking. Definitely has an old style Italian charm to it.
Con's = The Chicken Parmesan was disappointing. The chicken was tough, as though it was frozen and not thawed properly before cooking therefore making the meat much tougher than it should have been. The pasta with Bolognese was heavy on wine, tasting burnt. Not sure of the meat that was used but there was no flavor of beef, pork perhaps because of the overpowering burnt wine taste. No taste of sage, or fresh crushed tomato. Now recipes can vary (southern vs. northern) but this was disappointing. I will add I have a very strong sense of smell and taste therefore much more sensitive to flavors than others.
If you have picky eaters and go with something basic it may be a good choice. Looks like the reviews they post upon entering are a bit old, this place can have great potential if they hit the rest of the marks, entrees fall short but we only had two and can not speak to the remainder of the menu. I will add we decided to forego dessert in anticipation it would be disappointing based on the entrees.
