    Wonderful wait staff!!! Very clean room. Great food. Only complaint was chicken Marsala was not browned and didn’t taste anything like Marsala wine. Salads, steaks and other pasta dishes are great. This is our new favorite place to eat. Not a lot of places in Modesto but we recommend this one.

    Everyone’s (group of 10) food was either overcooked or not cooked enough. Heat was not working so it was freezing in there. Had to eat with our coats on. We paid and left all the food on the table because it would take to long to make everyone new dishes.

    First time at this restaurant and was very pleased with the food and service. Seafood raviolis and the gyros plate were both prepared well and very tasty. It was surprisingly quiet as there were only three tables that were occupied by guests. The server said it was unusual because ordinarily it’s rather busy on a Saturday evening. The server was very attentive and pleasant. The Manhattan I ordered from the bar was just ok. Personally I didn’t care for the look of their chairs as it clashed with the wall decor. But I’m sure most people don’t pay as much attention to that stuff as I do. Overall it was a very good experience and I’d definitely go back and would recommend it to others.

    Highly recommend. Excellent food (I had the salmon), service was very good and nice place to dine. It was a bit noisy and a bit expensive, although most things are these days. Went for Mother’s Day, was able to get a reservation and was seated promptly. If you go, order the fried cheese…the table next to us order it and it was very exciting.

    We enjoyed our Mother's Day brunch for 11 at Papapollonis. Our outdoor table was quite nice and sheltered from the wind and sun. The halibut, shrimp and avocado salad and filet Mignon were all very good!

    Great ambiance for a Valentine's evening. Our server was great, very patient with us since we were unfamiliar with the menu. I got the chicken parm which was so good! My boyfriend got the lasagna which was a bit saucy for his taste. He said it could have used a bit more substance, more pasta and cheese, but overall a good experience.
