The food is on point. Our mistake was to order the lunch special. The portions were those of a tasting menu. In the future we’ll order from the regular menu.

Haven't been here in a while but had memories of a wonderful salad bowl, tasteless spaghetti, great bread but otherwise pretty blah food so obviously came back for the salad & bread. Was there during early bird specials so I asked the waitress if the...More

We were looking for a good meal that wasn’t seafood and we weren’t impressed. The service was sub-par, which can sometimes be overlooked if the food is great, but that wasn’t the case. Most of the food was very bland. We got a combo appetizer...More

Absolutely worst service I've ever had at a restaurant. We were seated quickly however we sat at the table for thirty minutes without ever seeing a server and eventually left. We saw several other tables experiencing the same level of NO service.

I had a combo sampler dinner which included seafood, pasta, beef, and sausage. Everything was good but the seafood part was my favorite. The bread could have had more garlic. Live music from the bar made the evening fun!

No, I don't believe they do. But I just ran and picked it up; only 5 minutes from our condo!
