The salads were definitely pre-made. The steak was a cheap cut of meat and not very exciting. My wife's eggplant parmesan was fair. The service was efficient but not friendly. Not bad but not great.

My husband and I eat here on a regular basis, and are never disappointed. The food is varied and quite good. It can be very busy during high season and holidays. Always ask for the specials and the have daily ones. Soups are first rate as is the fresh fish.
