    It’s been well over a decade since I’ve eaten there. The food was so delish and great to have left overs. The lasagna is especially my favorite. Not too crazy about the calamari- more than usual sponge and no special sauce to eat it with. I will go back most definitely for lunch. The lunch menu is an awesome value for your $$

    The lasagna was very good. It could have used more cheese . The mozzarella garlic bread never disappoints. My waiter kept very busy and didn't miss a beat. The only issue was accessible access to the restroom. I asked and was told that the restroom was upstairs. I'm blind in one eye so my depth perception is off and have fallen down stairs a few times more than I would have liked. I didn't realize there was an elevator until later. It blends in with the decor. An upstairs accessibility sticker should be displayed on the door.

    The food was good and our server was great! But, I had a reservation for a family celebration and was told they were overbooked and we had to cram into a smaller table or wait. We waited so we would be comfortable but were hungry and disappointed after a long graduation ceremony, especially given I made a reservation several days ahead.

    Applie gorogonzola salad was excellent, but we waited an excessive amount of time for our entree of Cheese Manicotti. We noticed that others who ordered after us were served before us, and our entree was not served until we asked our waiter. It was dry and needed more sauce.

    Food was good but service and the photo tricks were not appreciated. Service was slow. A lady was going around offering photos and not telling anyone they’d have to give her $20/ photo. When we refuted the photos she kept pushing and pushing and pushing.

    If you’ve never eaten here before be prepared for large platters of food. They don’t serve individual meals other than during lunch. The eggplant Parmisan was good as was the stuffed pasta shells. The chicken park was delish as well. The lasagna was alright.

    Specifically asked for a QUIET TABLE away from children parties and families due to bringing a noise-sensitive adult. We were sat next to a party of 12, for a child's birthday party and they out out of control loud. 4 tables away in the next room was another loud birthday party with a table of 12. If you want a good review, PLEASE acknowledge our wishes. When this was brought up to the hostess, she stated that was the only available table. IT WAS NOT, we walked by 20 empty tables in a quiet area. Noise sensitive relative had a miserable meal, as did we, with kids banging silverware on tomato cans, singing Happy Birthday and screaming at the top of their lungs. Not coming back. I understand it's a family restaurant, but there were other seating options and the twenty-something hostess refused our request when we were walked to the table.

    Service was not good. Host refused to look at our reservation which had a note about our celebration. We had to talk to the server and ruin any surprise who then changed in the middle of our meal and didn't tell the other server. I didn't get a single drink refill the entire meal. The food was amazing, I could have easily become a repeat customer, but the service was a bummer.
