This is definitely a nostalgic place to visit. I have always enjoyed the Mizithra cheese dish that comes with salad and sherbet or spumoni for dessert. Fun experience with old world class.

I hadn't been in years. Though always had great memories of dinners with friends at this national chain. Recently I had been craving their Mizithra Cheese and Burnt Butter Spaghetti. It didn't disappoint. Great place for families and large groups.

A great place to go for a fun meal with your kids or those who are just young at heart. Sit in the trolley car if possible. The food is OK but that's not the main reason to go there.
