First time back in 10 years. Was not impressed 10 years ago. Very impressed on our last visit. Dinner was great. Waitress was awesome. Didnt make reservations and was seated at a really small table. That was really the only complaint.

The food is delicious, the servings are huge. Love being able to pick a bottle of wine at the store and have it opened at the table with a small corkage fee. The service is family friendly.

This was recommended by a Mentor local. We enjoyed the restaurant, the service and the food. The fish was fine, the bolognese gets a B.
