I went with 2 friends last weekend. Very friendly and kind staff. The hostess even found a table for a single person at the bar so the 3 of us could sit there while waiting for our table.

We shared baked feta appetizer (to die for!) and wonderfully crusty bread. We had a couple of glasses of zin and one of us had sangria. All very good.

For dinner, my friends ordered baked spaghetti and meat lasagna. Upon the recommendation of the server, I ordered a vegetarian linguine dish (I think it was called Linguine de Kathleen). My friends ate all of their food but said they would order something else next time. I did not care for my dish and neither did my friends. I ate a few bites and stopped. When the server was clearing, she asked if I wanted to take the rest home and I said no. She said, "You didn't like it, did you?" I said no, I'm sorry but I didn't. She was nice but didn't offer another dish in its place and did not take it off the bill.

I would go back but am not ready to recommend it to friends. It would have been so easy for the server to offer me something else. Also, from others I have heard that the pizza is amazing!
