I would say in my opinion this is a perfect place to take a date. It si located near a mall and offers a VAST menu of Italian/American Cusine.
It includes a bar, dim lighting, and no Pizza. THis is a definate sit down, relax, get aquainted and maybey kiss restaurant.
The Dessert part of the menu is my personal favorite. If you havent' tried sweetened Ricotta, do so. YUM.
I have never ahd to send anything back, and I am picky as I have said in other reviews. Food is cooked to order ,not premade.
I woudln't call it a family restaraunt as most tables are centered aroudn the main bar. However, for couples, it's ooo, lalala.
Prices are medium to expensive btu the cusine is well worth it. It's also a top hang out for local exec's.
I have never had a bad waiter or waitress. A defiante date place.
