The food tasted fine but the group found the portions on the smaller side. The prices also seemed a little on the higher side. The atmosphere and decor were as expected. The restaurant was clean and easy to enter and leave.

My favorite is the Italian wedding soup and Mushroom Ravioli. My husband loves the pizza and bread. Someone always to greet you!

Plenty of seating. Waitress was attentive. Food mediocre, I had tortellini in butter/garlic sauce, didn't taste any butter and it was watery. Appetizers were good. Tira misunderstanding was very good...
