Amazing food and way more than you can eat. Service was excellent. The only thing I would say is the music was up too high and as much as I love birthday celebrations, staff singing is cliche now. All in all great place, I'll be back!

Love the food and the atmosphere, but man, the tables are just not meant for family sharing. We got 2 small portion dishes to share, and a kids meal, at a table for 4 and there was no room to comfortably put things. The tables were also very close together, and conversations were loud, so it was an interesting Father's Day listening to the family across from us talk about catheterization - in detail. If I went to this location again, I would request a larger table for sure.

Very disappointing. The air conditioner was out and it was hot as blazes in there. No explanation and no apology. They also had a huge industrial blower thing that was super loud. The bathroom was dirty and so was the silverware. The bright spot was our long suffering server who was doing his very best to be accommodating. He was soaked through with sweat and working his tail off, obviously short staffed. Kudos to him, but the manager should be completely and utterly ashamed.

All of our food was cold. Server didn’t buss any dishes. After about an hour, we finally asked him if he could take away some of the dirty dishes, his response was like this was the strangest request he had ever gotten. He took one dish away, we had explain to him that we wanted all of the dirty dishes taken away. Mediocre is the nicest thing g I can say about this experience.

The basic menu set-up of portions that feed 3 people (small) or 5 people (large) is a strange for a chain Italian restaurant. The food was average to above average but not quite as good as other options in the area. Our server mistakenly forgot to press “send” on our order, so we waited quite a while for the mixed greens salad, which was all iceberg lettuce and fairly bland. The chicken saltimbocca was a better choice but the sauce needed more acid or lemon. The pizza for the children was bland for my taste, but they greatly enjoyed it. We were given complimentary dessert due to our wait time, and the server was very apologetic.

Upon arriving the front wait staff seemed very unprofessional and young almost to the point where I wanted to ask if an adult was present to fulfill my reservation. We were asked to wait for 10 minutes to sit down which was weird because the table was open; we were standing there waiting for an open table we had reserved. Upon sitting down the waiter informed us for the first time that they no longer have menus and are all online, I’m 28 and my fiancé is 26 we are tech savvy, but others aren’t and you should not have to have/use a smartphone to order regardless of pandemic. We got through all of this and ordered waters to start which never arrived after 10 minutes of waiting and looking at a digital menu displaying prices which have increased by at least 40% since my last visit. MY ADVICE IS TO SKIP THIS PLACE... GO SOMEWHERE ELSE LIKE GRASSA GRAMMA OR COALS; horrible!!!!!!!

We went in for a 9:30 reservation so it was very quiet and we ended up closing the place down. The restaurant itself has such a fun vibe with funny pictures all over the walls in every room. We had 4 people and we split two of the small entrees that were both delicious and more than enough food. Our server was very attentive with drinks and did a great job. Would definitely visit again.

Everything was amazing, except I felt that our reservation might have been missed or something. The people who reserved behind us were sat immediately and the hostess left to speak to someone about ours. We were then placed in a rather secluded area that looked closed, and we were really close to a lot of the staff and computers where they make their tickets. It didn’t ruin the night but the ambiance was a bit thrown off the whole time

We were seated in the bar area to accommodate mobility challenges but the 1st booth cushions were like seating on a board. We asked to be reseated and the 2nd booth was better but still not sufficient.
The service was slow and several simple request had to be repeated. The requested birthday desert was one of them. When it came it didn't have the requested candle, no plates or silverware. What should have been a pleasant surprise for my 87 year old mother in law fell flat. Disappointing,

The food was excellent but the service was far, far from acceptable. First, we had reservations 4 days in advanced for a Saturday Night at 7:30pm. Walk up to the hostess at 7:25pm and she says, "sorry, our reservations are running about an hour late". Hmmm, why did I make a reservation? We wait, finally get seated and wait another 10 minutes until someone asks if we want drinks. We asked for drinks and garlic bread. We got cheese bread. Ordered main courses, and they took a long time to come out. Had to flag someone down for drink refills, napkins, Parmesan Cheese. You name it. Our waitress didn't stop by very often. I think we were putting her out having to stop by. Were they busy? Short staffed? not my problem at these prices. Just wanted a good meal. Luckily, the food was excellent. 2 stars, sorry.
