It's a pretty big stretch to call this place authentic Italian. Having lived with 3rd generation italian-americans, this was nearly offensive. The lazagna and ziti were microwaved, The Manicotti, tortellini, raviolli, and stuffed shells are premade in a factory somewhere and frozen. The Shrimp pasta was watery and incredibly bland. The ingredients were not very fresh. The salads are very inconcistent as far as quality goes. The Dressings come prepackaged except the bleu cheese which was pretty tasty, though the ranch was the worst I think I've ever had (watery and bitter and greenish) The bread was good. The Pizzas and calzones were pretty good although lacking in flare. the tomato sause comes straight from a can which was VERY disappointing The meat sause smelled aweful. Overall the food was bland and overpriced. The beer and wine list was decent. The atmosphere was ok.. nothing special, though the building has alot of character and the location is great. The walls were paper thin next to the kitchen and dish area which was very disruptive if you are seated in the back. The wait staff was friendly enough, a little slow at times. The Food was very overpriced for the quality. although on certain nights you can get the stuffed pastas relatively cheaply though you are better off going to Fazoli's if you want cheap italian food. If you really want a good pizza Tomato Tomato is right around the corner. If you want real fine dining Maple Street Grill Is only a few doors down.
Pros: good pizza and calzones.
Cons: Overpriced and Bland
