My better half wanted red sauce italian food on Saturday so we tried this place for the first time (which actually received pretty good reviews at some online sites). We were there with the kids so we tried 5 different entree's and it was a five-way tie as to which was the worst. My wife had eggplant parm (horrible). My daughter had a chicken dish with mushrooms, peppers and onions (horrible). My son had an italian sub (horrible). My other son had pasta in garlic and olive oil (horrible) and I had chicken marsala (which was perhaps the worst italian dish Ive ever had). The salads that came with the meal were pedestrian (Ive had better dressings out of a Wishbone bottle) and the bread on the table was stale. The place is filthy (perhaps one of the most vile bathrooms Ive seen in the U.S.) and the waiter spent most of our hour there talking to the folks at the table next to us. What a waste of $100 and I cant believe this place stays in business.........
