We had a large family group everyone ordered something different and everyone raved about the meal! Fast friendly staff and a great variety of food. I had the veal marsala! Very good! Portions are huge! You will not be disappointed!

The pizza was average and my manicotti was not all that good. The sauce is very sweet, too much cheese, for me. Service kind of slow considering there were only 2 other tables with people at them. Would not return.
