We ordered the Italian Feast which came with lasagna, chicken parmesan, and fettuccine Alfredo. The chicken parmesan and fettuccine Alfredo were delicious. The sauce on the lasagna was a bit too sweet for me. Everything tasted very authentic. Much better than your average "olive garden"...More

Delicious Italian in a quaint setting. The Cesar salad is great. All entrees are excellent, especially those with the marinara. The marinara is the best. The service/wait staff are very cordial. Reservations a must on Friday and Saturday nights.

I agree with Carmen L except I would have talked to the manager right away. Problem is, it may cause the waitress to have problems later.
