Tortellini is to die for!! The service was second to none. Their old fashion on the specialty drink menu was spot on. The fresh bread and dip mixture was insane!!

Not required but would suggest that you do. As with any restaurant wait times can very from a few minutes to an hour. Fridays & Saturdays from about 5:30pm - 7:30pm seem to always be the busiest times.
