Six of us broke bread together, after not seeing each other for 20+years. Had a lovely dinner...round table that facilitated talking, pre fixe menu chock full of choices and the price was very reasonable. Entrée choices included salmon, trout, shrimp, chicken, etc. Everything was delicious and plentiful.

Still, the overall quality of our visit was in no way compromised. Prices are exceedingly reasonable, especially for a meal that always incliudes a generous choice of appetizer and dessert. My...

Food delish, service great, price for full meal is rated at a reasonable price, you get what you pay for. My favorite is their Greek salad, comes with the meal, and my favorite entree is the pork chop on the bone special fixings and sauces.love their Terimisui for desert.

This is a local restaurant in a local shopping center. The food is delicious, you definitely need reservations and the tables are close together. The service is good and the value for your meal is excellent. Choices are good, from Italian to American and the three course meals are reasonable.
