Everytime I eat here, the service is always friendly, quick, and fast, even when they're really busy. The salad and breadsticks are great and are a great compliment to the meal. The tiramisu is great for dessert too!

Service depends on your server. I love their soup & salad with breadsticks! Zuppa Tuscana (sp?) is the best, IMHO. Great place to eat!

Had dinner with some family members. Food was better than some Olive Gardens I've been to, which is odd since you would think they have the same recipes in all of them. Our waitress was great. Efficient, friendly, and attentive. Desserts were great!
