I was there with a group of about 15 people. The waitress was terrific, friendly, and helpful. The food was very reasonably priced and delicious. I also appreciated the low-key music they play from the golden age standards. No loud rock music. Much appreciated.

We arrived very late in the evening at the restaurant but were welcomed and served very promptly. The restaurant was still quite full at 21h30 in the evening and we quickly saw why. The food was really good and the lasagne was one of the...More
