    Dinner was a nice experience. We had reserved for outside, but it was a little warmer than expected so we moved to indoor seating. A table was available, and the indoor area was very nice. Service was good; food was good. The only thing to note is that I ordered a wine (rose) that came in a can (I had never ordered this before). The waiter asked if I would like a glass, I answered affirmatively, but was surprised when he brought a tumbler, not a wine glass. Of course, the taste was not affected; it was just unusual.

    Service was awful. Server never introduced himself. Wrong dinners were brought even before we got our salads. My husband ordered a pasta dish and was told, they didn’t have the pasta he wanted. He then ordered lasagna. Without telling my husband, the server brought what my husband originally ordered. The bill was laid on the table without any comment. Never going back.

    We had a great family dinner here. Grandkids really enjoyed the food and had a great time. We ordered our drinks and a number of appetizers, and they came out quickly. Our entrees were delicious, and the amount of food was over the top. Everyone had a box of leftovers to take home! Our server was terrific as well. Definitely would recommend to others that want a good traditional Italian dinner.

    Our first clue that it may not go well was when the waitress told us they did not have olive oil. They served a caprese salad with no olive oil. I pressed her for it, reminding her this WAS an Italian restaurant, and they MUST have olive oil. She again said no they didn't, and finally, after me really going on and on about it, she went to the kitchen and came out with a ramekin of olive oil. My caprese came out first and alone, though three others at the table also ordered salads as a first course. We were told those were ordered with the entrees, so they would come out together. What? We asked for bread, and were told that they now charge for bread, because they serve it with some very fancy homemade butter. We ordered it, and after we were almost finished with our meal, the bread came out....with two patties of wrapped butter. We chased down a bus boy and were able to get the housemade butter brought over, and it WAS good. Of course we were down to one piece of bread by then. The food was below average. Waitress, even though she didn't know what she was talking about, was extremely nice and never got upset with us, even though we were upset with everything. She tried her best and we tipped her well. But we will never come back here again or recommend it to anyone. BTW, I asked the manager about olive oil and caprese salads as we were leaving. She said that they stopped serving it, because they were just pouring the olive oil down the drain after people ate. Very bizarre. Definitely would not recommend this to anyone. Very expensive for not good food.

    Went here for Mother's Day and we really enjoyed our experience. We tried the salmon cakes, the soup, and the shrimp flatbread. Everything was so tasty, and the mimosas were perfect! A little pricier than we're user to, but worth it and cheaper than other places for a special occasion. This was our first time there, we would definitely go back! The flatbread is to die for 🤤

    Food was not that good. Chicken piccata was just an overcooked piece of chicken breast on top of pasta. The sauce was okay. Marinara sauce was too sweet. No bread or salad was served with the meal. Parmesan cheese was not freshly grated. My husband's meal came out when the rest of out party were half-way through our meal. Very disappointing.

    We've had good experiences here in the past, but our recent visit was terrible. The restaurant was not overly busy, but it took 20+ minutes to see a server. Drinks and an appetizer arrived in a reasonable amount of time, but then we didn't see anyone for 40+ minutes! Our main courses arrived about 90 minutes after we were seated. The pizza and one pasta dish were barely warm, and none of the meals were particularly inspiring. The "new menu" did not impress. The server had excuses for everything that went wrong, but no effort was made to make things right. We will not be returning, nor recommending this restaurant.

    The only reason I would give it a 2 star rating is because the waiter tried. Overpriced for tasteless food. Save your money and go to Olive Garden at least you will get breadsticks and a salad.

    We had a table for 7 outside. Except for some alcoholic drinks, the food was very good all around. And the service was better than average primarily due to our server. The ambiance and noise levels were less than stellar in the outdoor setting but were suitable for the size of our party. Of concern was the limited menu. Appetizers and pastas were plentiful, but second course choices were very limited. Overall it is a pleasant place to drop in and hang out with friends and family, but not a place for a nice gourmet dinner.

    First time here and won’t be the last. Everything was great from the hostess to getting the check. Our waiter, Rico, was super. He was polite, prompt and knowledgeable about the menu. He got our drinks out fast with the delicious fresh bread and our entrees came out hot and timely, as well. My salmon was cooked perfectly and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his seafood pasta. We will go back so we can try some of the other amazing food we saw coming out of the kitchen. Btw, the pizza smelled and looked incredible.

    This was the best chicken piccata I have eating in a long time. What a pleasant surprise. Since there are no pictures on the walls, and the tables and chairs a very "cafeteria like", I was hesitant to eat there. But don't let that stop you, the food is great. Like all restaurants they have a shortage of staff, so patience is a requirement.

    One of the worst restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. Took over 20 minutes for a server to come over, they were out of most of the things we tried to order and then we never actually received our food. We left two hours later hungry. Will never go back. Terrible experience.

    Reservations at 715. Waited 15 min to get a waiter. Had to ask hostess if she had assigned a waitress. Waited another 10 min to get a drink. Ordered a seltzer drink, got seltzer water. Ordered a beer, and it never came. Table of 6 was directly in front of hostess station- everyone was oblivious. Waitress was in her first night as server, received NO training. (I asked her about this) Food arrived 45 min later - for 3 of us. 5 min later 2 more meals arrived. the last meal never arrived. Complained, then manager arrived. This is when we found the root cause problem - her. All others were completely done with their meal, then the 6th meal arrived. manager apologized, aske if she could give the person "a drink or something". Arrogant and unprofessional attitude to say the least. I had never been slighted like this in a restaurant before. I hosted my family and friends here on this evening, and the dinner was ruined. Bottom line: I thanked the untrained server for trying, and gave her a full tip. I will reward the management representative by never patronizing her eatery again, and will spread the word. She clearly does not know how to manage.

    The waitstaff is stretched so thin but everyone was hustling to make it right. Good food, out of several wines due to supply chain issues - what they had was way overpriced for what it was, but we wanted wine! Overall fine time.
