Generally speaking, we do not eat at chain restaurants for Italian food as there are so many excellent family owned Italian restaurants in the area where we live. However, this restaurant was very close to where we were staying and very convenient after a long day of travel. It ended up being a very pleasant surprise. The food was good and served promptly. The wine list was reasonably extensive. They key here was the service. It was excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive. We made a point to commend her to the manager, who indicated that the restaurant provided rewards to its employees who received this type of praise. All in all, this was a very pleasant experience. We would definitely go here again.
