Took my girlfriend there for a quick, easy meal. I ordered the Chicken Alfredo. Service was not bad and the meal came out timely. The noodles were about 10% dry and the Alfredo sauce tasted like chlorine. I suspect they kept the noodles in water and it evaporated off to get such a strong chlorine taste. I couldn't get anyone's... More

This is an order at the counter, they deliver food to table kind of place. Good Italian salads, mains, desserts (incl a gelato bar). Daily specials are esp. good deals. Decent cheap wine. Large, unfancy seating area.

This restaurant is part of a large local restaurant group. The other restaurants are fine dining, this one is order at the counter and they bring the food to your table. Much more relax, the food is okay but for a quick meal on the go this is just perfect.

Decent Italian food at a moderate price. Usually order on line for curb side pick up. Order is always correct, hot and fresh. Inside is fast casual...order at the counter get a number and they deliver to your table. Foccia bread is a nice starter

Had been awhile since we were here - and we were again pleased. There is a reason they have been successful . Order at counter with food delivered to the table. Food is alway good.

This is an OK place for lunch. It's noisy, cafeteria style, tables are close together and the food is average. The menu was a bit confusing regarding what is included with meal. Staff is very responsive.

This is a casual restaurant. It is not expensive and clean. Service is fast. Food is ok. Some dishes are very caloric, some dishes are very salty. Food is fresh. Dishes are less caloric than the ones offered by most restaurants in Houston.

Order at the counter for wonderful food delivered to your table. Menu has good variety of choices- their rotisserie chicken is the best around. There is a reason they have been here for a long time!

Ok, I enjoy Sam's Rotisserie chicken so this was a good, flavorful chicken leg/thigh meal with mashed potatoes, a roll, and fettucine alfredo (I substituted from the green beans). I came in starving and was pleased with the speed of delivery and the quality of all of the food . It reminded me of the chicken I was once served... More
