Traditional dishes and all -you-can-eat salad, soup and bread sticks are the draw at this upscale-casual Italian restaurant.. In Short Established in 1982, this chain gained a following for its laid-back atmosphere and generous portions. Patrons settle into comfortable booths and tables in dining rooms with plants, artwork and décor reminiscient of the villas in the Tuscan countryside. Starters include scampi, sausage or pepperoni pizza, and several soup choices, as well as a signature seafood dip (crab, shrimp, cheese and marinara). Entrees include classics like lasagna, fettuccine Alfredo and chicken parmigiana. There are also "Garden Fare" options, which promise 30 percent fewer calories.
The food is great, but I can't say much for the waiters who decide to take it upon themselves to assume that the change is theirs to keep. We left him a tip anyways, despite his assumption. The second time we went to this place, we left a tip on the bill making our bill 55.00, when I check my online bank account, it is rounded up to 56.00 (after we signed the receipt).
Last time I checked, this was stealing. IF YOU GO HERE, SAVE YOUR RECEIPT AND CHECK YOUR BANK ACCOUNT. They will do it to you too. What aggrivates me is how we leave the proper 15%, sometimes more, and the waiters still decide to round up on their tip even after they would not return our change.
