  • "Food was good but ambience was lacking. We sat in the upper portion in the back and looked into an open storage room. Pianist added nothing."

  • "Great food at reasonable prices. Attentive service and reasonable wait time for food. Mature crowd, no giggly twenty-somethings in little black dresses. Have eaten here twice and will definitely be returning. Love the pork chop milanese with salad."
