Had a bad experience here quite a few years ago, went back after a long time to a pleasant surprise, the ownership or the management had changed. All Spanish guys running the place including the new owner/ manager but they were on top of their...More

Hadn't been here for a while. Used to be good food and reasonably priced. Surprised at the hike in prices but more disappointing was the lackluster buffet and very average ala carte offerings. Service amiable and attentive. Cannot recommend.

Nice layout inside. Food was average, pricing average for the location. Waiter could be better trained in not leaning over the table to give cheese on top of pasta and should explain specials better with the pricing. Valet parking very convenient where the restaurant is.

Average in every way except maybe pricing, which is a little bit on the high side. Not bad, just average. If you go, stick to the standard dishes, linguini white clam, fried calamari, something parmagiano, etc.

Very popular neighborhood restaurant but the food is mediocre and uninspired. If you want to revisit the late 80s through restaurant interiors, this is the place to go. The people are very nice and the service is good.

There is a very nice Sunday brunch which includes everything from homemade omelets to pasta. Unfortunately, their website is under construction so I can't give you more details. My recollection of the price was $20 to $25... More
