    The house made fettuccine is the best pasta I’ve ever had. We used to come here all the time when we lived in the area. We moved away but we drove 2 hours just to eat here. Highly recommend this place!

    Our waiter was great. Very clean space and wonderful atmosphere. The hostess was just ok. Our one salad came without any dressing and the meat logs didn’t have much sauce… definitely could have used a little more. Usually restaurant is spectacular but was a bit under the weather yesterday! Thanks . We will definitely be back.

    Waitress was not attentive. There was 1 maybe two other tables in the entire building and I got service as if the place was packed with lines out the door. When asked how my food was I said poor and it’s been better she said oh well is what it is. Won’t be back unfortunately.

    Disappointed …I love to cook a lot myself and have traveled and been to many Italien restaurants but this was disappointing. I had the un-breaded chicken Parmesan. It was listed as being the “healthy alternative”. But it was smothered in sauce and cheese. The chicken was a big junk that was over cooked and the sauce didn’t have much flavor. And to start we received bread that I don’t even want to call Italien because it had no flavor.

    The section I had asked to be seated in when making the reservation a week in advance was not given. Was told because a local university was having graduation that weekend the section was reserved for those people. However, I noticed that no people were seated there during my entire time dining. As a 40 year customer at this establishment I felt put off a bit. As if I was less than equal to people associated with the university. The seating I was provided was subpar and would not ever wish to sit there. I felt segregated and discriminated against. In the past several years myself and my family have probably spent tens of thousands of dollars at this restaurant. Very sad that on this night our money was deemed less that adequate to sit at a proper booth or table. I have been a very loyal patron here so it makes no sense that a frequent local supporter should be deposed in this way. Really disappointed.

    Although I asked for a table to accommodate my elderly Mother that used a walker, we were squeezed into a tiny booth on a busy aisle. Walker had to be stored around a corner. A table for 4 where a chair could have been moved to accommodate her walker would have been much nicer and more comfortable. Bread cold, Italian salad dressing tasteless. Mom said her fried shrimp were good. My salad fair at best.

    I would have plated my dinner differently - I ordered the fettuccine with grilled chicken. Had I served this at home (for instance), I would have laid the full grilled chicken breast on top, sliced so I knew it was a chicken breast grilled just for my order. Instead, the chicken was mixed in with the fettucine and it looked and tasted pre-fab. I was sorry that I ordered this entree. Also, and I'm no food critic, I would have twirled the fettuccine into more manageable sections (3 or 4 sections) in the bowl before I laid the charred chicken breast on top. But that's just what I would have done.

    For a restaurant that was so highly rated. I was so disappointed! I was so looking forward to a great meal. Bread awful. Tasted like white bread. Chicken Parmesan portion was small and sauce must have had a whole bag of sugar in it. Sweet and gross. For the price and the small size of the chicken Parm the value just wasn’t there! I can’t recommend this place to anyone. Maybe I’m just use to good Italian food. Sorry!

    The sauce on the food tasted cheap and not so great. However I am picky since I grew up on homemade Italian so others may think otherwise as personal preference. I tried it because it was my friends favorite but I wont be returning. I didnt like my meal at all, I ate two bites and my partner ate two as well. Sent it back to the kitchen and left with a 72$ bill even though we didn’t eat anything. That was really my biggest complaint.
