We had a large party for a day-before-wedding dinner. The staff accommodated many special requests and brought everything that we needed. The food was average but the staff made it a special night with their attentiveness.

Good, basic Italian food. Nothing very special, but good. The sourdough bread, fresh and warm, is the highlight of every meal. Ate in the trolley car, which is fun.

Prices reasonable for this area & good place to take children. Were a little disappointed in the food, because not as good as remember others being.
