I don't get it, it seems popular enough. Perhaps there isn't more authentic Italian here. Or perhaps because it's on the reasonable side. But, I'm sorry, this is just bad Italian food... Too much garlic, poorly prepared, uninteresting recipes, bad value. I'd pick somewhere else....More

Overall convenient location with average food. Had chicken Marsala, spaghetti and meatballs, steak and veal. The steak was excellent but everything else was average. However the bread and olive oil were very good. The waiter was excellent.
