Been a customer for years know. However we recently went to have dinner with a group of friends last week. Food is good. But the service is taking a nose dive fast!!! The last two times we have been there the waiters and waitresses have been totally rude and unknowledgeable about their menu. Don't expect friendly and courteous service to... More

Worst food I have ever eaten. You have to be out of your mind to eat here when there are so many good restaurants in the area. Why would anyone think this place is remotely good? The sauce is canned, nothing is fresh and grease is the common ingredient in all the dishes.

This is the worst. It is not even close to good Italian food. The sauce is canned and nothing is fresh and to top it off, it is expensive. Nothing but tasteless grease and poor service. I can't believe people actually pay for this food. Reminds me of the college dorm food.
