The last time I visited this restaurant was 19 years ago. The service and food was poor then and has not changed (I may have seen a couple from 19 years ago still waiting for service, it was hard to tell).

Our server was very friendly and accommodating, food was good, even though we arrived at 9:45 when they close at 10:00. Very convenient to the Crowne Plaza Hotel next door where we stayed.

For Italian food, this chain is excellent. They offer a great variety of choices, from standard pasta dishes to seafood to combination plates. Although the girl at the front door wasn't at all communicative, once seated the staff was wonderful. One of my favorite places to eat.

We were staying next door at the Crown Plaza and hoped in for a quick dinner. The servicer was one of the best I have ever had and made out dinner very nice.

From the starter to the main, the food was at a high standard and the taste was exceptional. The staff were friendly and exceptional. The proportions were equally great and I had to take a goody bag back to our hotel as I was stuffed after my starter. I can't praise the restaurant enough. Will definitely recommend the restaurant to... More
