I love their salad's for lunch. I almost boycotted this restaurant. My husband and I went there for dinner. We were seated and totally ignored for 15 minutes. Everyone walked by us as if we didn't exist. We got up and left, ate somewhere else.

One chef cooks for all in this quaint, classic restaurant. Excellent food and service. Small seating area, make reservations.

Small, so reservations a must. I left a V/M and they call back to work with us on the time. A gem in small town Indiana. Husband and wife team that are very creative. Don't miss this place.

Met with family members. Very nice cuisine, friendly staff and good prices. The menu is primarily Italian. It's a small venue but charming.

This is a small, quaint restaurant (be sure and make reservations). The atmosphere is quiet--a pleasant change from most restaurants. You can actually talk in a normal tone of voice and not have to strain to hear the conversation. The food is excellent. Everything is made to order. We ate with two other friends and everything was delicious. They have... More

Great service and delicious food! Will return again. House salad and asparagus soup were delicious. Spaghetti and mushroom lasagna were awesome. Try the raindrop dessert. Enough to share and perfect ending to a great Sunday lunch.

After several hours pouring over beautifully restored autos, we were in need of wholesome sustenance. Fortunately, close to hand was Sandra Ds. A generously portioned and freshly made chicken salad and a glass of wine revived our flagging souls so we could carry on. Sandra was friendly, engaging and solicitous. Our meal was exactly what was needed.

A great dining experience. Saw the review on Trip Advisor. Very small & quaint. Food is excellent. Italian fare. A policeman stopped in to pick up an order & came over to talk to us. He recommended everything on the menu. Never would have known Sandra D's existed if it weren't for Trip Advisor. It was rated the #1 place... More
