Had a wonderful meal here. Service was a tad slow, but not a big deal. Clean and LOW lit, so you'll have to use your phone's flashlight - but it adds to the romance...right?! Good food - think a step above Olive Garden.

He bought me the dessert trio and quickly became my best friend. The turtle cheesecake is a must have for me! We ordered food to go because on Monday most family meals are... More

Went for the first time on a Sunday, as part of my birthday lunch. This place made it a nice first experience into this franchise. I didn't realize how cheap of a deal I would get with their $7.99 lunch deal! Soup or Salad with an entree and you get free bread to dip in oil. My friend and I... More

Finished an enjoyable dinner, the Steak and Spaghetti Chicken we oitstanding, liked the fresh cooked green beans, peppers and roasted potatoes. Had the Lemon Cake that was a first but it was great. My wife had a small chocolate ice cream. Overall we enjoyed returning to this restaurant again this year while travelling south to warmer temperatures.

I can not even remember what I ordered when I went the last time. It wasn't very good. I do love their salads and bread with fresh oil and spices they bring to the table. I have had their pasta in the past and it was very tasty.

The booths seat 6 which is wonderful and their is a lot of space in this restaurant. The service was wonderful. I had the lobster ravioli and of course mini deserts. The kids loved their children meals (real pizza) and ice cream sundae's. The place was a hit. Right next to the mall so we also got to shop.

My daughter and I stopped for a quick dinner after travelling all day, neither was hungry but needed a little something. She ordered minestrone soup and claims it was the best that she ever had!! We both had pasta, which also was pretty good. Server (Harry) was very friendly and efficient. We initially just wanted soup/salad but didn't see any... More
