I'm sorry to hear about this reservation mishap. It's rare, but sometimes we can estimate the movement of tables wrong. We do our best to keep things moving, but we wouldn't want to rush anyone's meal. I appreciate your understanding, and I hope next time...More

I was impressed by the attitude of the service staff and the appearance of the facility. Then they brought the complimentary EVOO/bread/garlic knots. OMG!!! I had already ordered, but could have easily just sat there eating that instead. Not sure what the spice mix is...More

Full bar. But most of the folks order either wine or beer. They have two very good Italian beers (Moretti and Peroni). I prefer Moretti.
