I visited this restaurant this week for the first time. I loved the cozy, rustic feel of the place. I met some friends for happy hour. They have certain martinis at buy one get one. The only down side to this is that you have to get two of the same drinks. That being said, the martinis are wonderful. I... More

Stopped in after nice day shopping. Food soso. Bartender odd. Place is pretty and bright. I would suggest Beef oBradys down the street before you go here.

This Italian-American restaurant is only a 5 minute ride from our home and adjacent to a local movie theater that we frequent, so we had hoped to find a local jewel. Instead, we found a loud, slightly musty (in need of a good scrubbing) restaurant with above average, and sometimes exceptional food penalized by sloppy, inattentive, slow service. On our... More

This evening we actually started out for a different place, but they had a live band and that was too stimulating for me after a hard week. I had read reviews a while back for this place, so we decided to try it. As we entered was a wall of pictures of the proprietors and celebrities, including the local Congressman,... More

If I order eggplant parm, I expect it to be warm, not cold. Oh and it would be nice if it weren't simply eggplant infused parmesean. I could not find my paper thin eggplant under the huge thick slices of gelatinous cheese. One order of spaghetti, one of eggplant, one app and one wine for 60.00??? Nope .

Our family of 4 went for dinner on a Saturday night at 6:15 and were seated immediately. Our waitress Beth was very nice and attentive without smothering us. The calimari was very tender but a little bit greasy. The tenderness made up for the greasy. My kids gobbled it up. My boys shared the small calzone which was big for... More

The dishes were tasty and well prepared, but the portions were comical, barely enough to be called an appetizer. Extremely over priced: 3 people, each had one glass of house wine and an entree ( 2 pasta dishes, one dinner salad). $72.00!!! No appetizers, salad, soup, or dessert and coffee. We all left hungry. Check was given to me while... More
