Good option for drinks and food. They also have a bowling if you want to indulge in some more active fun.

My wife and stop down here once a month usually on a Sunday. The food alright for us to keep coming back. Like the bruschetta the most. Pesto pasta is decent and chicken Cutlet is a healthy portion. Service is present and on the ball. Inexpensive for a dinner and like a said we go back which means something

Took a chance on this place for dinner on the way home from the airport, we were not disappointed. Husband got the ravioli, I got the pan seared salmon over angel hair pasta with mushrooms and mussels. YUM!!! Service was good too.

Visited on a very busy Saturday night...only had to wait 5-10 mins for a table but noticed the wait staff seemed stressed. Dirty Dishes were getting piled up near the soda station. Ordered a glass of Riesling wine, it was very tart and was brought another glass from a new bottle but it was the same. Traded for a sangria... More

Pizza is the best in Charlotte, my wife had chicken salad it was very good. Previously her favorite was the salmon salad, this is a close second. I had mushroom sausage pizza, too good for words. Our waiter, at the arboretum location was Joaquin. He always greets us in a friendly manner, knows our preferences & is very helpful.

I had high hopes and they disappointed. The food is red sauce Italian, not great not bad. Had the veal piccatta. OK but not great. Had the calamari. It appeared frozen and deep fried, tough with little taste and came with a heavy red dipping sauce. Main came with pasta covered in a heavy red sauce that did not impress.... More

My husband and I have visited this restaurant numerous times. It is always a go to meal when we are undecided and don't really want to drive far for dinner. You don't need reservations, you can go "as is" without having to go home after a day of bumming around and the food is consistent. We visited last weekend after... More

Can't say enough about how great this place is. The food is excellent. Primarily it is Italian - pizza and pasta. But, the menu is very diverse. Their salads are awesome. They have a ton of great non-pasta dishes like grilled fish and sandwiches too. Food quality is great, service is great and the prices are excellent. I highly recommend... More
