Seriously disappointed. The servings were small and the seafood lasagna had no discernible seafood. Staff were good. Owner/management needs to wake up. One small item that i had never seen before: they charge $2 to split a meal into two - strange.

We were recommended this restaurant from a family member of one of our friends, and it was a delicious meal! Even on a Sunday night, it was a bustling place, and the ambiance was like authentic old-world Italy (I imagine the daytime is less so!).

We went on a Thursday night, discounts on bottled wine and live band made it an enjoyable evening. Halibut cheeks are simply delicious. Crab cakes are spicy so be prepared. Will definitely have this restaurant on the list when we return to Lake Country.
