My daughter and I went there for dinner last night. The waitresses were very friendly and we had excellent service. Had the bruscetta as an appetizer and it was delicious. Our entrees were also very tasty. Would recommend.

It was quite busy but I still should have said something, I know. So, instead I dug into the 'skor' bar treat that was recommended when I asked for something... More
