My husband and I ordered the fried ravioli, meat lovers pizza, and two salads. We also ordered a few adult beverages. A bit pricey, but worth it. Everything was good except the fried ravioli. It looked and tasted like a flattened Totino's Pizza Roll. Everything...More

Waitstaff is great & the food is truly authentic. I haven't tried the pizza, but everyone says it is as good as Chicago's. The portions are generous & great food with a view of the seawall.

Ate here with the family of 6 for dinner, everyone enjoyed their dish with no complaints. In particular, then grouper on angle hair pasta was superb! Clean place, nice view, and friendly professional waiter. High recommend.

What can I say- it was good! The food wasn't spectacular, but it was basic and tasty. We had the buffet, and I think that I'd have to order off the menu next time.
