Rated 2 out of 5 by from The fumes from their table cleaning were overpowering when awaiting our table and while eating the owner was cleaning tables and the smell again. I recommend them using a natural cleaner better for breathing and the palate when eating. Very noisy, nothing absorbs the music and conversations in an open dining area. Must say they have a very good all natural marinara. Prices are below $20 mark to keep tables turning over quicker.
