Great food. Calamari was so tender and delicious. Had it there twice and it was perfect both times. Good wine selection. Prices very reasonable too.
The food was a long time coming, and honestly, it was pretty ordinary. I had the tortellini which was dry and unappetizing. My son had the chicken parmigiana which he said was good. The Moroccan lamb was not Moroccan - it sat on couscous but lacked all the requisite spices. The scotch fillet steak was fatty. The scallops were probably the best dish at the table. The chips were also good. The service was bad - our waiter was not in the least interested in his job. The noise level was dreadful. We could not have a conversation due to the surrounding din. We had been seated in the bar area and I think there were quieter tables outside it. Overall - we won't be going back.
Friendly service. Nice food for dinner, i would be back for the lunch menu soon. Plenty of parking at the rear of restaurant. Thank you
