My value rating is based on 2 people dining. Their menu does not work well for small parties. You are charged for 3. I could have gotten a better meal for less at my local Italian restaurant.

Our server was absolutely awful, it was not busy and she was forgetful and paid little attention to our table. I asked for extra salad dressing and she brought me a giant soup bowl. She did not once refill my drink, she served our food cold. She didn’t ask us if we needed anything. The food had to have been sitting for a long time, all of it was cold. Gross. The Resturant was barely full and it was just horrible treatment, and awful food. I had to ask her about desserts and she pointed to the menu on the table, it was just rude! I could not believe her attitude.

The room was too loud. We found ourselves almost shouting so others at our table could hear us. One table in the same area was obnoxiously loud. They were making all sorts of odd sounds. The staff should have asked them to quiet down a bit.

They took the gluten free request seriously and asked if it was due to an allergy (it was). I assume they took extra precautions and I did not get sick. The gluten eaters in our party enjoyed the turkey dinner and the gluten free eaters enjoyed two chicken dishes and two vegetable dishes. Thank you!

Our waitress was efficient and very nice. The food was so-so, and the prices were outrageous (for what you get). An entrée supposed to be for three contains a large heap of cheap pasta but only enough shrimp and tomatoes to qualify as a meal for one, yet costs $30+. A glass of cheap jug wine is $14. The noise level made conversation at volumes below shouting impossible.
