Overpriced, Bland and Dirty.


First thing after sitting down, I noticed my silver wear was incredibly dirty with dried on cheese. Not something that’s easily missed unless you’re lazy and don’t care. Secondly, the food was god awful. Absolutely no flavor to their fettuccine or lasagna. The added chicken was freezer burnt and dry. Also, the one chicken breast they added cost 7 dollars. One piece of cake will cost you 14-18 dollars. The lamp on the wall for our table was covered in dust. The stand for our table had a grated design which allowed for table scraps and such to fall into/through it. It was obvious by the copious amounts of garbage poor out of the grate, that it had not been cleaned in quite some time. The table was easily moveable to aid in cleaning (we checked). The wait staff was unapologetic and lacked any self starting abilities to correct these issues.

We came from out of state to meet family and have Thanksgiving Dinner together. Dinner was at 5:30 and they had no traditional meal left. Main menu was good but over priced. Wine was $17 a glass for Chianti. Our table was crowded in by another’s although there was availability seating elsewhere.

Overall it is not an experience I wish to repeat.

The food is good and the service was excellent. However, I made a reservation on Open Table for our party of 5 and still waited 25 minutes after our reservation time for our table. We arrived at the restaurant about 15 minutes early, so in total we waited 40 minutes before we were seated.

A fun and lively place. We had a group of 12, a big birthday party. We waited 25 minutes after our reservation for our table. The party at our table was not leaving. I felt the manager could have offered to buy them a drink in the bar as there were many parties waiting in the lobby and they’d been sitting after they’d paid for 20-25 mins.

Once we sat, the service was awesome. Great server. The food is good but overpriced. The ambiance is spirited and the place is a good time. Just keep your expectations in line for what it is and you’ll be happy. Decent family style Italian.

Dinner before the marathon is always pasta with family. Unfortunately, it is so loud we could not visit. The pasta was good, perfectly al dente. The chicken for the gluten-free guests was delicious. However, the Antipasti Salad was soggy. It was as if it had been premixed- laden with dressing- an hour before it was delivered. Service was excellent, though; Matt took great care of us.

Food was good. Service by Jamie was outstanding. Restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday evening. Not sure why. I like everything but the birthday song sung by wait staff. That was pretty cute when done at TFI Friday back in 1980 - not so much in 2019.
