Let's start with the basics--it's not Olive Garden. No all-you-can-eat soup, salad, and breadsticks. And that's a good thing. While OG has its place (the afore-mentioned lunch), it's food is about as authentic as Chef Boyardee. For the same money or less, you can eat here, and get something of substance. Delicious pastas, veal scallopine, chicken tosca, polenta, even Italian sausage with peppers and onions. It's not the best Italian I've ever eaten, but it's not priced like that, either. This is a very good inexpensive Italian restaurant, and well worth your time and money. The food is very good, the service is usually solid, and it is a great value.
Pros: Very reasonably-priced good food
Cons: A long wait to be seated sometimes!
