“It was a pretty good middle of the road Italian restaurant. Service was pretty good, the waitress was helpful with size and quantity for kids. Portion sizes were big. The atmosphere was nice because the restaurant is very open with lots of windows. A good mid week restaurant, or good to take a big group.” – Sara Jephcott
