Party of four dined here Saturday night. This return visit was based on the enjoyable experience we had last time we were here. My question, what's happened to this place? The restaurant was less than half occupied, hardly anything in the bar and less than acceptable service. We had a garlic pizza for entrée which was very enjoyable but the... More

The pizza had lots of traditional toppings but the base was very crusty. Servings are large. Service efficient.

Last Tuesday I had the misfortune to have invited a large group of family and friends to join me for dinner at your restaurant to celebrate the arrival of a family member from Europe. To suggest that I was totally disappointed would be a complete understatement as the whole dining experience was embarrassing and a complete disgrace and given any... More

Had dinner here for a friends birthday - there was 12 of us seated at a long table squished in like sardines! The service was good, although we did have to wave down a staff member (as she set up tables) to order our drinks. I had a pasta dish, which was very tasty. Food and drinks at reasonable prices.

Delicious cheese platter for free with a $5 wine. 5-7pm happy hour. $39 of value for only $10 followed by a gourmet pizza dinner. Great value

Tasty food. Try the barbeque chicken pizza or any of the specials (but not the cannelloni - too salty)

Over the past 8 years we had eaten here probably every 3 months. The food was always great - we loved their lamb cutlets and the spaghetti marinara. Some time last year we went here and ordered the above. We knew as soon as the food arrived there was something different! a few pieces of sea food. whereas it was... More

Went here for a group dinner with 20 ppl. Ordered garlic pizzas to start only to have them brought out covered in diced tomatoes!? We asked the waitress who said that it says it vomes with tomato on the menu so they could remake it but we'd be charged again- we weren't thrilled but happy to cop it since it... More

Out of the way but extremely good little Italian restaurant. My son had his first after school job there so I know there is lots of "love" in the cooking. Worth the trip
