    Our waitress was great. The food was very good. The first time we ate here our food and service were not great. We tried it again and was glad we gave them a second chance.

    Our server must of had a bad day. From the start there was an attitude. There were four in our party. We have dined here almost every trip to the casino. We had friend with us and just needed a little more time with the menu. That seemed to bother her because she was ready to take the order and we all were not. We didn't order drinks except for just water. And that also appeared to upset her. We asked for additional bread because there were four of us and that to was what appeared to be a problem. No salt or pepper on the table . We had to ask for that as well. This could go on, but I think you all get the point.

    I created a dinner with an incredible appetizer and two sides. My terrific waittress, Shelby gave me suggestions; I wasn't disappointed!! The appetizer was the crispy eggplant and grilled shrimp, with a delicious sauce.

    My steak medallions were so tough, I could not cut them. The asparagus was limp and overcooked. The tiramisu was soggy. Salad was good. Other guests in our party were also disappointed.

    The server was outstanding. The food is always good one question why do they still have flat breads on the menu they haven’t been able to produce flatbreads for at least three years. Just take them off the menu already!

    We arrived with a reservation and they say us down early. After ordering drinks with no appetizers our food took over an hour to arrive. Quality of the food was good but not great. Just like every other restaurant in the last 2 years it's just not like it used to be. The menu also has a lot fewer options than it used to.

    Food was great. Waiter poor. I questioned a side and he handed me back my menu instead of answering a simple question. Then I had to stop him after food was quickly dropped- I asked fir steak sauce. I ordered a mixed drink and wanted a second one but he never checked on table. Then 20 min into meal our waters were empty so I flagged down a waitress to fill. When he finally showed up w bill I expressed my concerns and he never apologized. I understand being busy but he had plenty of time to chit chat w waitress right behind us at the counter.

    Over all experience was good. Had a little issue with one of the host Victoria upon checking IN. First she told me I did not have Reservation that it was an 1 1/2 hour wait. Showed her my email confirmation that I did reserved for 6:45pm(check in at 6:18). Then she had an attitude telling us we have to wait until then which is fine but just the way she talked with the tone of irritation. It was our 25th year Anniversary and decided to book our dinner there over elsewhere as my husband love Italian food and that was our experience from the host. I work as a Nurse, I know how chaotic and busy it can get but you great everyone with a smile. I also brought this to the other host that was working with her in that shift.
