This restraunt is warm and welcoming as soon as you walk in the door. Even on busy nights with a wait they make sure that you are ready and even offer a drink before hand! As you sit down you are really taken back by the waiter/ess. Very polite and knowledgable. My experience has always started and ended with a smile. Top dishes that we enjoy. Start off with a very good crisp salad as much or as little cheese as you want freshly cut. Unlimited breadsticks. T-bone steak - delicious!! Cut into it with a soft warm steamy cut. Melts in your mouth kind of steak. I have never tasted something so good. The spices on top or just right. Whoever cooked it the nights that I ate it was meant to be a chef. Chicken Parmesan w/ fettuccini alfredo - again. wonderful. Cut into a beautiful well done piece of chicken with perfectly cooked noodles and a wonderful sauce to top. I think Olive Garden is very exceptional.
I really love the decor and grounds of this restaurant. The restaurant is rustic with great woodwork throughout and a giant fireplace. The tables are nice with good lighting and views of the open kitchen. I've been here on three occasions now and have left Disapointed with the food each time. The portions are right, the service has been great, but I wish the food had more bold flavors and choices. The wine list needs to be upgraded and expanded I beleive the restaurant is in need of a chef to compliment the service and location. I know they will get right over time and I'm looking forward to seeing it mature.
The Italian Beef sandwich! Killer stuff right there. Nobody does Italian better than this place. I am addicted! You can get a genuine New York slice, or a hearty pasta dish with a salad and garlic bread. It is deli style with a few seats inside or patio seating. I just read that he is expanding to a second location between meyers lake and belden village. Can't wait to see what he does with it. I am picky about my Italian, and will follow this guy wherever he goes. Genuine, and affordable food. Do not pass this gem by.
