This was a place my father took the family when we were children. One evening I decided to treat my children, who are very well behaved, to dinner there and on the way told them of how I knew the place.

Well if we were seated any farther back, we'd have been sitting in the kitchen. My daughter is handicapped which slows her down, several times I had to stop the waiter from trying to take her plate away.

As for the food, it was a horror. I ordered Shrimp Scampi and got 5 overcooked shrimp sitting a few spoonfuls of completely dry, white rice. My husband couldn't cut the veal he ordered. We ended up leaving. Never bothered with the dessert. The waiters obviously didn't want us there.

I've found better food and atmosphere in local pizzarias. If you're planning a special night - skip this place.
