One nice touch was live entertainment. A musician played keyboard and sang old standards. Not too loud. The patrons... could still have table conversations. This may be Saturday night thing. I liked it.read more

It has lost its charm. The garlic knots are as hard as biscotti! And the food lacks in quality it once was famous for

OMG the amount of food to choose from was incredible! It is $25.99 it includes a drink (mamosa or bloody Mary) &... coffee or tea. All the breakfast foods plus sliced meats like leg of lamb, roast beef, turkey . Then there was soups, veggies, pasta, pot roast,ribs, all kinds of fish, salads, antipasto just everything u can think of. Also several desserts. And the food was good. I went for a birthday party, had a nice time. The waitress was very attentive. Would definitely go back.read more

The buffet style of this restaurant was nice for the fact that you could grab what you want right away. The food was... typical and the atmosphere was alright. However, there was not much to justify the $37 per person charge. I would have paid at most $25 when compared to other Italian restaurants in the surrounding area. If you wish to charge over $30 per person, there better be some distinct service, better decor, lighting, seats and super savory cuisine. I failed to see any of this and so the final bill was unjustified.read more
