Napkins were filthy. Needed to ask 4 times to replace them. Sat for 10 minutes before being served with menus. Restaurant also starting to look run down. Food was great - especially the pizza.

Good for lunch, good for dinner - love the ambiance. Food is just about reasonable. Staff is just Ok friendly - when you see other restaurants getting ahead on that, you expect more. Tables can be far apart than current.
