Cassidy was our server and she did an exceptionally fine job. She was able to get a special dish prepared (mussels and linguini) that was not on the menu. Mussels and sauce were excellent and there was plenty of bread to ensure no sauce escaped...More

Food was very good. The portions were pretty large. Will probably go back again. Nothing fancy, but a good quick meal. The Italian salad however was not that great. Just lunch meat w Italian fixings
