Monday night my family ate out at Oggi’s in Santee located in the town center near target. When we walked in we were greeted by two ladies while one of them took us to the patio to be seated with no wait at all. Surprisingly, the patio was nearly empty and extremely quite which was nice. However, with time large parties attended the patio as well and it grew noisey, but it was the normal and did not bother us. I ordered a water to drink and the spaghetti that came with red sauce and a garlic knot. For the food we waited about twenty minutes, which was definitely not long at all. The garlic knots were a little dry, but without asking the waiter brought us out fresh, new knots that just came out of the oven, she also apologized and told us that the ones we first received were the last of the old batch. The second garlic knot was way better than the first one. The noodles and red sauce were extremely hot, but nevertheless delicious as always. After eating we hung around on the patio for an extra thirty minutes to talk while we finished our drinks because of the great atmosphere. They brought us the check, which was affordable for three people, and did not rush us out although we had already finished our food. Having finished our drinks, we left through the restaurant because the patio gate was locked. On our way out we were once again greeted and wished a good night as another employee held the door open for us. I would say that our overall experience at Oggi’s was quite pleasant due to the nice staff and great food that we were served. I would say that the Oggi’s in Santee has great customer service.
