I gave this place two chances, even though the wait staff was rude and I got crappy service both times. Chance 1: chicken cacciatore- one boiled chicken breast, devoid of sauce or any sort of seasoning, plopped on a bed of spaghetti noodles with a...More

The food and service are always top notch. We especially love being serenaded by the staff. And remember to leave room for dessert.
