Food was good, but kind of bland. Salads did not have a lot of veggies. Service was very good. It can get loud inside.

This was a great place to eat. The atmosphere was cozy, the portions generous, and delicious. My husband and I shared the chicken marsala. Yum. It was great. Near several hotels and walking to the arenas was easy. I would go there again.
