I've been here many times for events, while the food is good, not one of my favs. Strong mold smells,not too healthy.

The food is some of the best Italian food. They atmosphere is very friendly for couple and families. The staff is professsional and friendly. At times it is quite fun sitting at the bar. The customers are just as friendly as the staff. We eat there often and love going back for more.

Well I personally thought it was going to be a small portion of meat for $21.95. The prime rib was a very good size and it came with... More

App's turned out to be the perfect place for a nice, quiet Mother's day meal for my favorite mom in the world. Everything from cocktails, the wine, appetizers to dessert was just great. Our booth was in the perfect cozy location. Quiet and elegant. Just what we were looking for. Our entrees were the stuffed shrimp ( huge portion )... More

The menu and food here are very good. Portions are big. The last time I was here, I got the prix fixe dinner (3 courses) and was stuffed. I highly recommend their broccoli rabe with sausage! Service is hit or miss. It just depends on the server.
