They put all diners into one area until they had to expand to the other side of the room. The conversations from the two tables by us were inescapable. Our waitress Roxanne bordered on abrupt. The sweet marinara, as it’s described in the menu, is in fact, noticeably sweet.

Staff said they don’t get or see the open table reservations - the boss checks them later. Doesn’t that make a reservation pretty useless?

Mistakenly thought the Groupon was good for the lunch specials. But that was all right, We ordered a meat lover's pizza to go. The lasagna lunch special was just ok, but the pizza was fabulous. It was loaded with meat. Delicious! Will definitely go back there for pizza.

We've eaten here before, but this was a bad experience. The service was absolutely terrible. The waitress did comp us the wine, but because of such a negative experience we do not plan to return. Never understood what the hostess was trying to tell us about Open Table, but we never got the 100 points although she said we would.

Great food and service. They don’t have an OpenTable reservation kiosk so I’m not sure how points are calculated.

We celebrated my sister's birthday here. We were a party of 7. The service was amazing. Roxanne anticipated our every need and was always available. The bread was soft inside and crusty outside. My favorite. The other entrees such as the Hawaiian pizza, eggplant parmigiana, and gnocchi parmesan were good choices. Roxanne gave us Italian doughnuts with raspberry and chocolate sauces to end our celebration. It was very kind and thoughtful.

Food was delicious: bruschetta was tasty; baked ravioli great especially the marinara, and angel hair terrific.

We had lasagna and the small antipasto salad and both were delicious!

Antipasto is a favorite. Pizza is a savory experience. Toppings are plentiful and the baked crunchy pepperoni leaves you coming back for more. Warm homemade bread gives the welcoming touch. Desserts are a must... leave room, especially for the cannoli.

We were hopeful to find an Italian restaurant in our neighborhood. The staff is polite, but we did have to wait for our server to greet us because she was in a lengthy conversation with one of the other two groups of diners. Food was okay (good mozerrella), hot, and plentiful. The restauarant was very bright and reminded us of a diner. It was a bit pricey for pasta so we will stick to their pizza carry out.

I remember my Mom loving this restaurant (at the old location). Was not impressed. Would not go to either location again.
