For my daughter's 6th birthday, we decided to pack up and go to Mr. Gatti's or Gattiland. She was so excited! We didn't reserve a room or anything, we just sat out in the dining area. We were able to bring in our birthday cake with no problem.
The location was in good shape and very clean. Kids ages 2 and under pay nothing. Then the rest of the kids are on a "sliding scale" according to age. I believe the adult price was 6.99. Everyone who enters the door must pay.
The buffet was pretty good. They had a decent salad bar, several pastas, breadsticks, several types of pizza and even dessert pizza. There was something there for all of us. Drinks are fountain and are included in the buffet.
The game room was interesting. It's what I expected, since I have been to Chuck E. Cheese before. There were also several small riding toys too. I became frustrated with the skee ball quickly though. This is my favorite game. I noticed that my "ball count" was disappearing. I asked management and they informed me it is on an 8 or 9 second timer. However, even with that timer, I was still losing balls. I gave up on this game. The other games worked pretty well though.
My daughter was frustrated because the prize she wanted required way more tickets than could be won in the one visit unless a miracle happened and it didn't. But this is to be expected at all these type places.
At first the buffet price seemed excessive, but in the end I was happy because I did have choices instead of buying one pizza that I may or may not be happy with. My daughter had lots of fun and so did the little kids as well as the adults.
