Very good food. It was quick service but it could be because of the social distancing. Never disappointed when I dine here

The food was good and our server was great. The only downside was that the espresso machine was broken so the only coffee they had was Keurig!

We were disappointed with how dirty the outside porch area was. The table was dirty, as well with the floors and walls. A simple pressure wash would work wonders. The food was ok. We ate here a year ago and it was much better.

Kudos to this location for providing a pleasant dining ambiance that conforms to currently mandated safety standards for both customers and staff.
The menu offers a good range of options.
The meals are generally not as well executed (small portions lacking in flavor and authenticity) as one would expect for the price.

Got an email about first responders and health care workers able to get a free meal of meat balls and spaghetti for the month of October. Told all my coworkers ( I work in a pharmacy) and posted a copy of the email. I was so excited to go that I went that night (Tuesday). I haven't been in years. I used to love the Penne rustica dish, until they changed the recipe. I invited my client and made a reservation for 6:45. I arrived a few minutes early, and waited by the door for someone to greet us. That didn't happen. So, after about 3 minutes I went over to the girl bagging to go orders to say, we were there, but I don't think she heard me over the plexiglass. I would have to believe she saw us since we were standing in the open doorway. A man that had just walked up, said he'd help us. I gave him my name, and he asked me to wait a few minutes. We waited outside about 7 minutes before he called us in. I noticed there was one waiter, that was responsible for everyone one the patio. There were at least 12 people including us (5 or more parties). He took our drink order, said he'd be right back, then disappeared for about 10 minutes. I caught him as he was passing by to ask if we could order our food, and if we could have straws. He took our order. It was about 7 minutes later before I could catch him to ask for a straw again, which he had in his apron. I ordered brussels sprouts and the spaghetti. The sprouts were good. The spaghetti was horrible. The sauce was flavorless and the pasta was mushy, as if it were overcooked. I ate about 4 bites of it, then asked for a to go container, thinking I could add to the flavor at home. We had been there at least 30 minutes before we got our food. I was so disappointed, as I had been excited about this meal all day. I regretted that I had spread the word to all of my coworkers. I don't know if the cook was having a bad day, or if the plate sat in the kitchen too long, but I was extremely disappointed. I won't go back.

Friendly staff. We take my mom there every year for her birthday and this year did not disappoint. Staff was able to accommodate our party of 7 by sitting at two tables near each other. Staff is following current safety regulations. Patio seating is not crowded and not inside a tent. Seating is along the outside perimeter of restaurant. Only setback is that menu is reduced, but majority of our favorites are still available.

We had to find someone that worked there -very understaffed. We did not get any service or greeted at our table for 15 minutes. Server was not happy to work there and rushed us through ordering. Will not be returning.

No longer offer my favorite appetizer which is goat cheese peppadew peppers. Seriously?? Please bring them back ASAP.

Lamb shank was freezing cold in the middle. Not edible and thank goodness I didn’t get sick. Waitstaff and Manager were very apologetic and offered me another entree which I decided to get the Mac n. Cheese which was very tasty.

The Salmon is very good here. It's very fresh & prepared to your order. I asked for angel hair pasta to go along with it & it's a perfect "hit the spot" combo.
