Our server Ms. Melanie, very friendly, assisted with my menu selection, and that of my dining companion, very attentive in making sure we where enjoying our meal/beverages. Highly recommend this hidden gem of a restaurant, planning to return very soon. Also try the orange flavored margaritas, an enjoyable concept. More

Very good Italian food at reasonable prices. It can get noisy, as it's popular with families, but the staff is friendly. The garlic breadsticks are out of this world! My only concern: they charge $5 for a modest soup & salad bar. But the portions are large, so unless you really like salad, it's not necessary. More

Great Tequila selection, something like 60 different brand/types. I was a little disappointed that there were not more non-enchilada/taco/burrito selections. I ordered the Carne Asada which is supposed to be, and is described as, thin-sliced steak; it was about 1.5 inches thick. My wife's beef fajitas had large chunks of steak that were too large to be wrapped in a tortilla so she ate it as a regular dish. More
