Wow. I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting the Olive Garden but this place is much better than that. Their food isn’t anything groundbreaking, but it is good. I had one of their dinner specials, the blackened scallops on pesto risotto, and thought it was great. The scallops were large and weren’t gritty at all. The risotto was a pretty good consistency (not the best I’ve ever had, but still good) and had some bold flavors with the pesto and mushrooms. This dish is different than the shrimp and scallop risotto on their daily menu, by the way.

I love the fact that you can get small samplings of their desserts for 2.45 a shot. They’re large enough to satisfy your sweet tooth without feeling like you’re bingeing on a huge piece of cake or whatever. Most of the desserts are tasty, but not spectacular. The tiramisu and cheesecake are probably the best. I was impressed with the food and the interior of the place. It was a nice casual atmosphere and a relatively inexpensive meal.
