    We had 4 different meals: steak, chicken fettuccini Alfredo, chicken Milanese and spaghetti with meat sauce. The steak and chicken fettuccini Alfredo were very good but the other two were just ok. The spaghetti had very little sauce and the chicken Milanese was over cooked.

    Service was excellent. I had gluten free chicken spinach Alfredo. My sister had chicken spinach fettuccini. Her fettuccine was overcooked making it very tough, as well as chicken. My gluten free was very good. I had a peach Bellini that was excellent.

    Tied them twice in the past year and both times we had issues. This time there was way too much garlic in the mashed potatoes and the chicken alfredo sauce. You should be able to enjoy what you're eating. Chicken was served burnt on a salad and asparagus was too charred to eat. Management did remove 2 of the 5 entrees from our bill, which was appreciated. Last time I had to send a steak back twice because it was cold and rare. Steak was ordered medium. Chef personally apologized. For the volume they do, there shouldn't be that many mistakes.

    It was quite busy for a Wednesday night. Our waitress was very good (although she never brought the beverage I ordered) but I had water so it was nit a big deal. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our experience. We had been there once before and loved it so that's why we went back.

    Food not as good as it used to be. Pasta sauce was very bland and pasta was not cooked enough. We’re out of several wines on the wine list and several entrees on the menu. The pork chops were very thin and way overdone. The wedge salsa were good though

    Service was very slow, my spaghetti noodles were undercooked ,asked for extra sauce and was charged for it, but it looked just like the last time. Server took order and food was delivered by someone else, had to ask for salt, pepper and bread. All delivered 1/2 through the meal.

    Food was great. Waitress was good and attentive. Hostess did not seem to know what was going on. Reservations was for 4:30. Did get seated until after 5pm. Didn’t tell us they were going to text us when ready. Sat someone before us until we went to desk to check on reservations. Couldn’t hear text bell due to noise in lobby.

    Nice place. Waiter Alfonso, very good. Ordered a Mia Tia with cherry juice instead of grenadine and was told they had no more so that was it! I saw bar lady in restaurant part tell our waiter who orders that anyway... I do. I was charged 7.50 and 8.00 for 2 shots I guess. So if I wanted juice I surely paid for it. Not waiters fault. Birthday celebration and we sat beside a fire hydrant box with a pole beside us. I hope upper mgmt sits there at the next meeting lol.

    We had this date planned for a few weeks for our anniversary, our reservation was on time but the food took forever. My steak was overdone and then we ordered dessert and it took over 20 mins. We were there almost 2 hours and watched people eat and leave faster than us. They did comp our salad but for over $100 meal you would have thought more would have been done for a anniversary dinner I noted on reservation
