"BEWARE this is not a restaurant for couples! It was noisy, and you had to order either small (enough for 2 ) or Large (enough for 4). We had a $20 coupon to use for my birthday, however only if we ordered two entrees, which was too much food and a waste. The Chicken stuffed with proccuitto was three pieces was breaded little stuffing and was dry, the so called sauce was a thick sticky mess. We ordered a side of Fetticini Alfredo, Lots of noodles with sauce poured over- nothing special. The Mussels as an appetizer in a tomato sauce were tasty but served with no bread to sop up the sauce. It took two tries and 15 minutes to track down the waiter for bread, then he tried to SELL us Gaelic bread, another waiter brought us some bread, That dinner with a Bellini and Whiskey Sour was $80 and as it was New Year's Eve we had to pay another $30 for parking."

"2 adults and 2 young kids...we got a 2 small portion of pasta and they were plenty leftover. My son really enjoy the giant meatballs. However, as quickly as the food comes, the server came back within 30min to ask if we are already to get the food packed to go. She rushed us to finish our meal either to end her shift or get another consumer to her table."

"They brought one entree about 10 minutes before the other and forgot to bring us plates so we had to flag down staff to get us plates. They tried to serve us dessert before we were even halfway through the main entrees. They kept messing up on the dessert and that took forever and then they kept rushing us so they could free the table. The food was decent but it was overshadowed by the bad service."

"Not impressed with the service. Thanksgiving dinner and one party is served 20 minutes after everyone else. The issue of not communicating how late the dinner would be also frustraited our group as we all waited a period hoping it would arrive."

"Good tasting food. Kinda cheesy atmosphere but remember it's a chain. Good for large groups that want to eat and chat for a few hours. Try the wedding cake..."

"We got a large chicken Alfredo ($30) a small gourmet pizza ($18) some garlic cheese bread ( $11) plus the big brownie Sunday and non alcoholic drinks. Bill was over $100!! WAY too expensive for pasta!! Probably won't return. It did taste good, but could have cooked the same meal for under $30!"

"We like to come here with a group, great way to try lots of different dishes.
Here are the dishes we had (we had 11 women, and ordered large salads, & a large and a small of both of the main dishes):
Chopped Antipasto Salad-really good
Mixed Green Salad-not much flavor and pretty plain
Chicken Saltimbocca- always a favorite, so good!
Baked Rigatoni-good flavor, a little dry

"Service is flat out horrific. Took about 40 min for our drinks. Once we finally got them beer was warm. That's fine they brought us new ones. The server was horrible, brought the bread an hour after we were sitting. No exaggeration. Then when he set it down he just threw it causing one of the drinks to fall (sangria). I asked to napkins and he was so in a hurry he walked away without even noticing it. Got it cleaned up, and never even offered another drink. When the glass was full. Food was great, just needs better service ."

"There were gnats hovering over our table the entire meal. There was a used paper napkin on the table, which the waiter did notice and picked up eventually. The antipasto salad should also be antimeat salad. There is literally like an ounce of meat. Overall, more hype than the place is worth."
