I used to eat here quite often but hadn't been here for a while. We ordered veal piccata. Came very tough and barely warm. We sent it back. Tried shrimp with pasta. Largely tasteless and again lukewarm. The antipasto salad was anything but, more like...More

I am glad we made a reservation because they had a 40 person waiting list at 7 when we left. It is good for families, casual get-togethers, parties and big eaters. The portions are gigantic. The decor and the theme are cheesy, stereotyped Italian-American style....More

Unique, local restaurant and decor, very large servings e.g. Spaghetti comes with 2- 1/2 pound meatballs with very welcoming staff who seemed genuinely glad to work here and wait on us. Am a picky eater but would definitely go back for the very quirky Italian...More

Tried to go for dinner as it was near my hotel and was told they were family style only - no individual options. That is their purview of course, but it seems kind of silly as folks do eat alone. Anywho, went again for lunch...More

We were celebrating our son, grandson, and my birthdays. There were 10 of us. It is a fun place especially for families with kids. The food is okay, but not exceptional. Maybe I feel that way because I am Italian. The kids love the food,...More

Food (seafood and fettuccine) was good. Ambience (physical and noise) was terrible. The restaurant is in desperate need of a face-lift. Feeling is old, dirty, and needing repair. The back of my booth rocked enough to put a baby to sleep. That would not happen,...More
