Food was very good. Service not so much. Brandi our server was sour from the beginning and couldn't have smiled of she had to. Really acted like she didn't want to be there. Service was perfunctory and nothing more. A little disappointing.

Way too noisy, and the lasagna lacked flavor. The portion sizes were good, but that didn't make up for the lackluster lasagna.

Food was very good as usual. Our Waitress needed to lighten up and be friendly. She was coughing but being unfriendly and slow to refill drinks and even pay attention to us was not right.
This is a consistent place with very good food but much better if you join the website and get coupons. Otherwise it can be pricey for pasta.

Perfect for pre marathon dinner! Lovely festive ambience but could still hear each other. Dod was excellent. Especially bruschetta, shells, and house salad

We arrived at 930pm and were told there was a 45 min wait. I saw on open table they had an open reservation for 945 so I booked it. We were then seated in a closed section with no server. We waited for 15 mins while 2 staff members prepped the other tables in the section for the next day. We got the attention of a server to alert them that we had not even had our drink orders taken. The server who ended up being assigned to our table was polite enough but it was obvious we were not a priority and he repeatedly brought 9 plates for our party of 10. I guess we were being punished for using open table to avoid a 45 minute wait when there was no one else waiting and plenty of open tables.

Since it was Christmas day it was SUPER packed. Which meant a long wait, which I am ok with. What was not Ok was the guy that was greeting people as they walked in. I walked to the hostess stand and he just said "Yes" not "hello", not "how can I help you", just "yes" which is rude. No smile on his face either. I understand it was busy but that doesn't excuse a bad attitude.

Our Waitress was kind, and as attentive as she could be. The fettuccini alfredo was lacking but it was still an ok dinner, considering. I would return to the restaurant, but it would not be my first choice.

The place was packed; it was Christmas day after all:). We arrived and were seated within 15 minutes. I felt a little bad for others who were waiting 45 minutes and didn't have a reservation. I heard at least 5 different people complained to the host about taking too long to be seated. The host was in a bad mood; but he wasn't nasty to customers complaining about time and the bartender. Our waiter, Ronnie, did an excellent job. He was in a good mood and very courteous with his share of tables. I'm glad I used open table!

Very crowded on Christmas day as expected. Food and service were good but
the calamari which is usually crisp and crunchy came to the table rubbery.
Bar drinks took a very long time to arrive. We overheard from another table, the
restaurant ran out of a certain beer. No excuse on a holiday. I would fire the bar manager.

Great food and service during Thanksgiving! Took my family here for the holiday dinner and we had a great time. There were 10 of us total. Perfect for large groups!

Enjoyed eating lunch much more than large family style dishes. Each order what they want. Garlic bread was expensive for amount received. I felt garlic bread should be comp. At least first serving. Maybe charge for second or third servings.
