We ate here at a repast following a funeral, and the food was so delicious, we would come back again to dine in the restaurant. Service was impeccable, with glasses being instantly refilled, special requests being accommodated, and empty plates being whisked away to make room for new ones. The green salad served was fresh and appealing. The buffet included... More

Late night dinner with my family. Our server was very prompt and courteous. I had the chicken special. It was delicious. The portions are more than enough. I would go back.

First off the place is TOO LOUD....they need some sound buffers in this place. It's basically a karaoke hangout on weekends which just adds to the noise level. The food is ok....not great. Artichoke appetizer was terrible....slushy stuffing and the leaves were tough....this happens when they're heated in the oven or a microwave. Best appetizer is the spedini....best entrees...stick with... More

They are accommodating if you need a modification. We have been satisfied with everything we've ever ordered, as have the people we've brought there. The waiters have ben diligent... More

Brought family here (eleven) to celebrate wife's birthday. Have been coming here for years, mostly on special occasions. Food was OK, nothing to stand head and shoulders above the surrounding Italian restaurants. Service was outstanding, professional staff, efficient and courteous. Did not mind paying a tip above the 20% itemized on the bill. A bit dismayed to discover that prices... More

We felt that the staff were genuinely happy to serve us. A complimentary starter and sorbets between courses pleased us as did the main courses which were delicious and the portions as... More
