Customer Testimonials

We were extremely impressed

with the large selection. We were greeted cordially by the hostess and she wished me a happy birthday. Our server was excellent. He knew the menu very well and offered us great advice. We enjoyed calamari and artichokes for our appetizers. My wife had the pot roast and she loved it. I had the scallops and truly enjoyed them. The ambiance was great and the pianist even played our song for us. What a great experience and at a very reasonable price. Thank you for a wonderful evening and a great meal.
~ Sincerely,  William Smith – Venice, Florida
