The food here is okay, nothing super special. The prices are very high and I just don't think the price of the food is equal to how good the food is. In other words it's a high price for average food. The decor is okay...More

We had a wonderful evening meal here during a recent visit to Kent. The staff was attentive throughout our visit. The food was well prepared and the menu offered a variety of entrees. We will definitely return to this restaurant.

We go here each year for my great-grandma's birthday and it's always been delightful. They have a kid's menu (with an ice cream desert), which pleases the little ones and they also have an amazing selection of traditional Italian dishes as well as some that...More

I was looking forward to eating here because the reviews were so positive, but I was disappointed when I had my first bite. Don't get me wrong it was fine, but not anywhere near rich in flavor as I was anticipating. I've had some pretty...More
