Years ago this place could stand on its salad and breadsticks. Neither is as good as it used to be. The food is okay and the service is okay. Now that the salad and breadsticks aren't as good the whole experience is okay at best. This has gone from one of my all time favorites to one of my okay places to go if I am around Deerbrook Mall and want Italian food but don't feel like driving to a really good restaurant a few miles away.
