A first time visit. They had an awesome acoustic duo. I sat at the bar but the bar tender didn't care to serve you. If you were not a regular you were ignored. I ordered a glass of wine and water. I then had to flag her down to get her attention for a second drink when there was 4 different parties at the bar. If you eat good music and poor service a place to go.

Husband just went in here to get our food he was met right away with a attitude because he showed up early to pick up food he only wanted to see maybe if it was ready earlier the woman with attitude said I doubt it's ready and come back in 20 minutes but she went back to check and it was ready after giving him our food she said next time pay attention to the time the food says it will be ready with a major attitude. First time here and last time. The woman had brown hair and a baseball cap sitting at the bar in her 50s. FYI people are coming here from the hospital or waiting for loved ones at the hospital. LEARN SOME MANNERS. Also found hair in my food.

Ordered carry-out. Chicken Parmesan and Garlic Bread were both very good. Enough for two full meals. Easily ordered online. Food was hot and ready as planned. Will definitely be repeat customers.
Absolutely love their pizza and calzones... Great tap beer 🍺 specials too!Their ordering website needs a little work... especially since their voice assistant pushes for web orders and even texts a link. When the web order fails and you call back to request a person... it's a 50/50 chance someone answers.... Work in progress so it is OK!

Saturdays appear to be busy, maybe they’re understaffed or something.Food orders took way longer than expected, considering the place isn't super busy. It took at least 45 minutes for a small kids pizza and some tenders.Had to ask our waitress multiple times of the food was almost ready....not the best experience. The food was good once it came out!

What a nice find. They're happening a lot lately.🙏🙏 Nice salad, home made dressing, excellent Chicken Parm sandwich with REAL chicken (imagine) and very fresh bread. Olivia, was great, and there were a lot of people in the restaurant.

First time going here. Our server Geo was awesome he had to take care of the whole dining room area and it was swamped on a Saturday night. Food was delicious and reasonably priced and would definitely go back..

Stopped for breakfast on a busy Saturday morning. We were greeted right away, and had a short wait while the table was being prepared for us. Great selection of breakfast items and lunch items. Try the fiesta won't be disappointed. We will be back.

Food was okay, service was a little slow but understandable because of staff shortage. Ordered the caprese salad and pretty sure I got food poisoning from it. Wasn’t feeling too good a couple of hours later

Great Italian food done right !!! My husband and I ordered cheese ravioli and meat lasagna with meat sauce. I have to say, they make their gravy(sauce) very close to the way my Nana used to make it. And coming from a Chicago Italian that's a great compliment. After years of living in mchenry, I finally found my neighborhood Italian restaurant. We will definitely be returning. Good job guys!!!I love your McHenry restaurant !!!

Great modern restaurant with some extra entertainment, drinks fairly priced but the food a little pricey for what you get. Good service and friendly atmosphere, patio at the front is very nice, I just made my second visit and they definitely deserve my 5 star review, awesome service from Arlene.
