We went for a quick bite and was expecting more of an Italian restaurant but it was more of a sports bar. The service was good and food was ok, just need to spruce up the inside a bit.

To start we had to try the cauliflower wings with ranch (delicious meat alternative and really good ). Had the crab rangoon infused burger and shrimp fettuccine Alfredo. We both enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. We will be back next trip to Greenville!
