At best this restaurant is average. Nothing special about their lasagna, minestrone, or salad. Best to sit outside otherwise you overhear unprofessional staff conversation.

I've gone there for lunch on numerous occasions and the food is always tasty and plentiful. The ambiance is good for a quick business meeting like a one on one review. The bread is delicious and the staff was attentive. We are usually in and out within 50 minutes and food to go due to the portions being large.
