First off we waited for one hour plus for the food. Second off, the owners mother was our server....just not a happy person! There are plenty of other places to spend your $$ in West Hartford Center.

This restaurant just opened and is located between the main street of Farmington Ave and the shopping parking lot which makes it very convenient but difficult to see from a map. Here's the Google address. It seems they don't yet have a website up-and-running.
