We stopped in for a late lunch. We each ordered a drink, a single trip to the salad bar. and we split a stromboli. It was very good! Neither of us finished our half. We would definitely return!

Went to this restaurant with friends after church. My wife had the stuffed pizza and I had a Calzone. Food was excellent and plenty to go around. Sampled the pasta from another plate at the table - vodka sauce was excellent
