We had a great time for lunch. The curry chicken was delicious! Staff was very nice and we were very satisfied.

Extremely disappointing. The food is a classic example of the worst that Italian-American can get. Very heavy industrial strength tomato sauce over the lasagna (cold inside although on avery hot dish) and shrimp cooked in a sour sauce. Unappetizing.

Lunch special came with a free beverage. When i go the bill, I was told that coffee does not count as a beverage..

My wife and I usually try and make the best of things and rarely find a restaurant completely unenjoyable. This is the first time this year that we have had such a joyless meall. Our copious leftovers did not deserve a doggie bag.

We were a party of three and ordered one personal and one large pizza, each with different toppings. Both pizzas arrived with the wrong toppings. We were short of time so we declined their offer to re-make the pizzas. 2 out of 2 pizzas were wrong. Service was fast and food was decent but not killer. Just another pizza place.

We were a group of four ladies. We have eaten here before and enjoyed it very much so it was a no brainer to meet up there again.
We had lobster ravioli, shrimp scampi on capelin pasta, Penne Add to dictionary and spaghetti marinara. The dishes were devoured by us! The accompanying wines were quiet good too. The service, as per usual, excellent.
Cleanliness, atmosphere just right.
Many more visits to come.

I used to live next door and liked their food. but we ordered a large specialty pizza that lacked everything. little toppings, uneven cooked pizza. we were the only people in the restaurant mid week. i assume the cook had the day off. Meutermedia
