Stood in the waiting room for 5 minutes before someone greeted us. The spaghetti and meatballs wasn't good. The sauce was basically just water and the meatball tasted like it was microwaved. The prices were outrageous. Definitely will not be going here again.

Service was great, but I felt it was a bit pricey. It’s hard to eat there with just a few people because the portions are so overwhelming. I used to LOVE the pizza here but was very disappointed in the one we got. It was a little under cooked and the cheese tasted terrible, I think because of the provolone. Next time I’ll ask for mozzarella only. I’ll definitely go back again, but order smarter next time.

I could not recommend based on the food we received. 90% of our pasta dishes were just that PASTA. The meat sauce was 10% of the dish could not find any to cover pasta. Same was true with the pasta and shrimp dish we ordered. Could not find enough shrimp to taste with the pasta. Very disappointed especially for the price we paid. I don’t mind paying if I’m receiving quality dishes. Sorry to say this was not the case. Really like the atmosphere though.
