I can't really see how this retardant gets the reviews it does. There is not much to recommend it. The food was mediocre at best. The Fantasy salad is pretty much cole slaw with cucumbers and tomatoes. We had the spaghetti with meat balls and...More

The new location is much larger but on the second floor further down the street. Food is presented well and cooked to perfection. The lunch special at $700 MP including a glass of wine is a real deal.
