We have been here several times and every time ihas been very enjoyable. I remember being served a Family Style at Italian restaurants when I was young. Sharing, passing, and choosing menu choices are fun for the whole family.

I have been here a dozen times, and every time is amazing service and food! Kids love it, and has a unique atmosphere. Ordering and serving is a little different. You order one dish that serves 2 (small) -4 (large) people.
