No ambiance, noisy, not great service and the food is just OK. Would not recommend making a special trip. Lots of kids - mostly not well-behaved. Hard to have a conversation.

The meatballs had to be frozen. I buy the same ones for my three year old daughter. The veal Marsala portion was pithy. The lasagna wasn't terrible, but nothing worth digesting twice. Everything had the sophistication of a frozen Encore entree.

We recently went here for dinner and the bar is very nice and very large and is designed so you can talk and not have to look around each other... The service was great and the food was very good as well. This was our first time trying this restaurant and will most def go back!

The food is fine, never especially good and never bad. Service is a high average. A quick and easy place for lunch or dinner.

Went there for lunch with my husband. We found the food satisfactory and the service was good. We thought it was a bit pricey for what we had.

Have ordered take out before and found it to be good,however the last time I ordered the food was not up to the previous standards. I ordered eggplant parm and could only eat a 1/4 of it because it was tasteless. Also ordered cannoli and threw them away, the shell was soft and the filling had a very weird taste.... More

stopped in for lunch with two friends. we wanted to sit outside, which we did. It took close to ten minutes for the server to come out during which time we almost left because of the wait. the rest of the service was good. there was nothing to dry your hands with in the ladies room.

When in Woodbury this is a better choice than Dottie's but still not as good as the Woodbury Diner. Relatively expensive bland plain food with only fair quality service.
