    The dining experience was very rushed. The appetizer, fried calamari was over cooked and before the appetizer could be half way eaten, the salad was served. I began eating the salad and before the forkful the entrees were brought to the table. My entree was then cold by the time I had eaten my salad. I asked for the entree to be reheated and upon it being returned, it was not palatable because of being over salted.

    My husband and I dine at this restaurant almost every time we visit Harrah's Cherokee Casino. The menu has changed and most of the pasta dishes have a heavy cream sauce. On this visit they were unable to make a cheese pizza on the children's menu due to a problem with the bread or oven. I wish the menu included veal or chicken marsala or chicken picata and lighter pasta. My husband ordered the special which was lasagna and it was delicious, but that was the only special. Most Italian restaurants have lasagna as a staple and not a special. The service was great but the seating was on the exterior of the restaurant and very noisy with guests standing right beside our table waiting to get seated. I would have expected a better table since I made the reservation two months in advance. Disappointed with this visit.

    Service was not fine dining for what we paid found the waiter to be casual and even said yup and was short and unprofessional in interactions and found him disappointing for a hundred dollar meal. Had better service at Dennys for a breakfast or like an Olive Garden. Expected more. Carpaccio was good but serving size was a bit ridiculous for two people for appetizer but was yummy. Steak medallions hubby ordered came med well he ordered med rare. He only ate one didn’t eat other two. I ate ravioli was really good a tad salty but very yummy. Wine also was good selection. For price expected better service and steak cooked better. Wasn’t worth the price of 100.00 meal. Desserts looked underwhelming at tables around us so we skipped it. A bit disappointing overall but was ok.

    Chicken Milanese was almost inedible. Chicken breast pounded flat and over cooked to a dark brown served on Al dente pasta laid on top of the sauce. Our server confirmed it was overcooked and we ate less than a quarter of it but it was not removed from the check or replaced. Left hungry and not satisfied

    My ravioli dish was wonderful. My husband’s Brio pasta not so much. He had to keep putting salt on it and he never uses salt. Very bland. Bread and lobster bisque were ok. Service was good. If we hadn’t had a coupon we would have been disappointed. Up in the air whether we would go again or not.

    took an hour for my steak to be cooked & when it arrived ,it was cold & with the wrong sides.Sent it back for a fresh one with the correct sides. No apologies from the waitress nor the Manger . Not up to the standards I expect .
