Better than Olive Garden – When I saw the 80's decor and chipped plastic water glasses I wasn't expecting much however I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the food. I ordered the meatball sandwich and my friend ordered a specialty pasta dish which came with soup and bread. The prices were good for the portions. I liked the meat sauce and it tasted even better the next day. The cheese bread was fresh and not greasy. Everything was served nice and hot. The service was average even though the place was almost empty. All in all I have to say I would eat here again.
Avoid eating here – Was not impressed. 3 booths by the front door and the rest of the seating were tables and chairs. Limited wine list. Food was bland and boring. House salad contained things you'd see in a waldorf salad and the dressing was bland. I had the ravioli with meat sauce. Yuck. I could have bought frozen ravioli and sauce that would have tasted better. My husband had the Fettuccini Alfredo and he thought it was bland. They give you cheese bread in a basket instead of sliced Italian bread. I don't recommend this place. Any money spent here is too much money paid.
