The service of the restaurant is good, the wait staff always has a smile and they come at your table just the right amount of times (not too often or rarely) so the service gets a B+.
For their appetizers you can order the ravioli fritti which are fried meat or cheese ravioli dumplings with a marinara sauce on top for $7.99, or if you have a table with five or more people goes for the antipasti sampler which includes three items of your choice for $9.99.
For their pastas go with the lobster ravioli with an Alfredo sauce for $18.99, the sauce in this plate is just right or go with the manicotti which are pasta tubes filled with ricotta and parmesan with a marinara sauce on top for $11.99 and the sauce here is too much and if you are a cheese lover then go with the linguine quattro formaggi and the four cheeses are blue cheese, parmesan, Swiss and mozzarella cheese for $15.99.
For their seconds go with the Mahi-Mahi which comes sautéed in butter, white wine and mustard, onions and pineapple for $16.49, or the salmon alla Verdi which is also sautéed with butter and white wine but comes with capers and mashed potatoes for $17.99. However if you prefer meat then go with the pepper filet mignon which comes with a creamy black pepper sauce and comes with mashed potatoes and vegetables for $20.99 or try the arrosto nero which is pot roast with bacon, onions, red bell peppers and carrots for $19.99.
The pasta entrées get a C+ because some come with too much sauce, but their meat, fish and poultry entrées get a B+ for taste and the vegetables all taste fresh.
The overall prices of the appetizers are good but the entrées are a little high so they get a solid C for prices.
