Loved the greens in the dinner salad and dressing was good. Why can't everyone make a salad this good? Eggplant parm was excellent. Chicken Marsala was good as well. Gnocchi was a bit heavy not like the ones I've had in Italy, but the meatball was very good and sauce is outstanding ! Cheesecake was excellent as well. A great meal at a great price. I will be back. Ps I'm a chef and extremely picky ....
We go every year for Valentine's Day, plus a lot during the year as well. Their salads are amazing and the dipping oil for the bread is out of this world delicious!! Service is always friendly and fast and the quality of the food can't be beat! So glad to have it so close to home!
Go for the early bird special for best value! That menu changes from time to time. Super yummy sun dried tomato dipping oil for your bread. Be there at five for the best service. Very good Italian food. They do fantastic catering as well. I was amazed at the extra goodies my spouse got in his salad. This is a favorite with the locals. Meal ends with a thin lace cookie which is wonderful!

Had reservations at 8:15, got seated at 9:10. Automosphere was loud and smokey in the bar area which I guess you ask for by requesting a smoking table but if anybody in your party is a non-smoker, I wouldn't suggest taking them here.
For the wait, we did receive a free ap but the plate/fork I received to eat it with was dirty and needed to be returned. I'm not a picky person when it comes to things like that but after an hour wait, come on. Next, I didn't receive my salad and although they offered to bring it out after I brought it to their attention, at this point I was ready to move on and just wish I had gone to Buca di Beppo like I had planned.
The dinner was pretty good (Chicken Parm) but nothing to write home to mom about. I guess this place is perfect for take-out --- just make sure they give you everything that your ordered.
