The food alone is a reason to come here. I had a pasta dish with sausage and broccoli. The sausage was flavorful without being too spicy, while the broccoli was crisp yet still cooked. The servers were extremely attentive and friendly. I won't say this...More

Just can't get used to those American portion sizes. Massive - it would be nice to order a few things, but just impossible. The cauliflower soup was excellent, as was the cheese and the pizza. The only item I would not recommend is the squash...More

Entrées run from $11.00 to 18.00. The lunch menu is not as extensive as the dinner menu but the offerings are similar. Also, the restaurant always has off-menu specials at both lunch and dinner.
