interesting cocktails, great appetizers , decent Caesar salad, good Eggplant Parmesan, outstanding Salmon & Fettucini Alfredo w/ Shrimp ... but most poor suggestion : Ravioli Caprese w/ Italian Sausage. The ravioli were tasteless and not 'al dente' at all ...

We enjoyed the food and the waitstaff was very attentive, helpful and friendly. The big windows were open, almost like eating outside. And the drinks were great! Thumbs up for the pizza appetizer.

We visited on a weeknight and ordered the prime rib for two. The prime rib was great and you can't beat the deal for $50 that includes a bottle of wine! We sat at the bar and had great service! We will definitely return!

We enjoy their “2 for” meals and the food is usually very good. We recently visited on a busy weekday and the meat and veggies were ok, although a bit overcooked which was unusual. Mrs P’s pasta was delicious as always especially with the Italian...More

If you look at the menu online, it does not specifically say gluten-free but you can substitute the offending starch.
