Woman at front counter not pleasant; we didn’t feel welcome from the get go. Waited 20 minutes to be seated when there were several vacant tables (other people who came in after us were seated within 5 minutes!), another 5 minutes or so for server...More

Stopped here with colleagues for a quick lunch. The spaghetti with marinara was tasty, but the salad was dreadful, just iceberg lettuce smothered in shredded cheese with a few bits of tomato. Others had thin and pan pizzas, which they thought were fairly good. Service...More
