    Server worked hard. Kitchen was aweful. Ninety minutes to get first main course. Over 40 minutes between first dish( the worst example of a Margarita pizza I could ever imagine) and other orders. WON’T BE FOOLED AGAIN.

    The food was delicious as always. The crew was outstanding - trying to make the most of our evening even when they were presented with staffing challenges (as most are). The food was plentiful and we took home quite a leftover box! Would definitely go back. Thanks to the staff for working so hard!

    Good experience, the waitress was very busy serving 5 tables in our area, she was prompt considering here customer load, she offered us free bread for our extra wait which I didn’t consider to be extra wait time.

    Waiter was extremely friendly and great! Antipasto salad, bread and oil, red sangria, and fettuccine Alfredo were excellent! None of us cared for the pizza. That was a little disappointing. But everything else was good also wings very good!

    Thanks for a wonderful evening, few friend decided to go there few weeks ago, the reservation process was so easy, I even got a call as a reminders by someone that was so courteous and engaging. During our arrival, the staff was so polite, we have a handicap in our group and they were so respectful and helpful with her needs. The service was awesome, our host was Denise, she took care of us like we were family. The food was amazing, we ordered the garlic bread, the chicken stuff with prosciutto, and pasta al forno. Great amount, great flavor and very delicious. We accompany everything with sangria.... Thanks again, looking forward to visit them again.

    Food was good and plentiful. Service was a bit slow but expected during these times. Chicken Carbonara was great. Spaghetti and meatballs good. Pizza was just so so. Appetizers were all very good. Value was good. 9 people and bill with tip was a little over 200 but everyone was able to take leftovers!

    I love the atmosphere of the place. It reminds me of my grandmother's kitchen. But the heart shaped lasagna made me sick and the waitress was not very nice. As much as I love italian food - for the price and attitude I will make it at home.

    Chicken parmesan was a bit dry on the ends and didn’t have nearly as much tomato sauce as it usually does. The small salad was good but overpriced at $18 for just iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and red onion.

    The service was great. We loved our waitress. The food was mediocre. I loved the Gorgonzola salad! The fettuccine pasta was bland, needed salt and the meat stuffed shells were disappointing. The breadsticks were good but nothing amazing. The Italian cream cake was pretty good though.

    We went with a party of 10 including all kids and adults and had a great meal. It was a bit more expensive than I remember but the portions are huge and we had left overs. Our waitress seemed annoyed if we asked for a drink refill and had to be asked to clear the plates so we could fit all of our main course dishes on the table. Overall it was great, service was lacking.

    While I do understand the situation most restaurants are in. You would think with only having three servers they would keep them in an area all together for the tables they are serving. We couldn’t get refills or ask for things that were missing once the waiter walked away as they were at another corner of the restaurant. Meal came out a dish at a time and no need plates. Felt it was extra pricey for what we got.
