The experience was terrific, as always. I think the only thing that you can improve on is the price ... but I know the cost of everything is rarely going down. I am grateful that I can afford to dine with my friends and family ... at your place 😎 More

Italian | Columbus, Columbus

Previous diners so knew what to expect. Service was excellent as usual, as was the meal. Did a large antipasti salad (split) and she had spaghetti and a meatball while I still have trouble resisting the alfredo with a nice pile of grilled shrimp; we both had the 1/2 size and went home full. Wondering about the whole deal; about 5-6 booths removed and some kind of stage/video program was to be held. Hope this isn't a permanent fixture because it sure ruins the seating area. Lots of standees waiting for this program, whatever it was; dining area looked like its becoming a sports bar. Sure hope not. More
