The food is good but the service is sometimes spotty. There are a few employees when working you have to be cautious with checking your order. Some days the breadsticks come around fast other days you have to go to the front and ask but as long as you ask you will always receive. Depending on the day it can... More

Extra breadsticks, which admittedly we go through a lot of, were hard to come by. There was no clean silverware, so they gave us plastic. If... More

Wasn't greeted with a hello or smile. No extra breadsticks. Soda machine was out of ice and had mold on it. Food was hot and tasted good. I wouldn't go back to this fazolis
