I took my friend there for his birthday. This carrabb's ruined it. We got there at 4:15. There were maybe 2 tables there before us. It took almost 6 minutes before anyone asked if we had been helped and then we were told it was a wait. After waiting with nobody else around for 10 minutes we were seated. Our... More

Even the wait staff was concerned, as we were +50 minute wait for a table on a Saturday night. (We were told 20-30). Our waiter was sympathetic and did a great job to expedite our food. The food came out as expected and on point. The food was fresh, warm and cooked to order. The bread was actually almost too... More

So, our water glass was dirty with "lip" impressions on the glass. I asked for the specials and was told they have nothing except a vegetable. So, I went online and pulled up the advertised specials and asked again. Sheepishly, the server said that unless you ask for a specific special they are told to say "no specials"...now that my...

I had a really good dinner here with a friend a few weeks ago. My favorite thing that I had was the chicken soup. It was so good I've been thinking of it ever since. Our server Christine did a great job, she went above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable evening. I will return.

We hadn't been to this chain in about two years so we didn't realize how much the menu had changed. Whereas they used to have a number of meatless items (like most Italian restaurants) now even normally meatless dishes like fettuccine Alfredo and Caesar salad are crammed with chicken. Spaghetti pomodoro is the only meatless dish but pasta with a... More

Called ahead for seating, and were seated immediately. Waitstaff were friendly, knowledgeable, and not at all pushy. Food was delivered in a timely manner and was as expected. Salads were chilled, entrees were hot.

Not worth the money. Food was ok, service was excellent, preparation was good, but that didn't equal the price.

You can walk to this restaurant from about 4 different hotels that surround it. Nothing special, but it is convenient if you do not want to get out and about.
