We eat here about once a month for team building lunches. Atmosphere is excellent, quiet enough to be able to talk, not too loud... Food is always awesome, service way better than most places these days... Very attentive. We will continue to eat here.

This restaurant has absolutely delicious meals prepared when ordered. It is not very big but also has a section of boots if your just getting pizza or just not in a "dining" mood. Service and food will be the same....excellent.

I have eaten here three times. The last meal was disappointing. Drink was terrible, thinnest piece of swordfish I have ever had. Very nice salad...crisp and fresh. Waitress seemed annoyed when I requested wine instead of the cocktail I had been served. Service was just okay...she did way too much socializing at a table behind us. So many great Italian... More

Well the restaurant we were trying to find was closed and we saw this place. I wasn't sure about... More

This was not the first choice, but the first choice was closed! So, this will now be the first choice while I'm in this area for business. They have an extensive menu, something for everyone's taste. The soup was homemade and very good. The entree's were large portions, the service was good and the pricing made it an excellent value.

A group of ten of us had a 7:30 reservation for dinner on a Thursday evening. We were the only diners during our entire meal. Our server was extremely friendly and personable and was very familiar with the menu. Prices were reasonable and the restaurant has a free off-street parking lot. The salad greens were fresh and crisp, and we... More

My husband and I got a gift certificate so we went there for dinner and did enjoy the meal. It was even kind of romantic. Not what one would expect from Meriden. It's too bad though because the staff was rude until we saw someone we knew who worked there and then it changed slightly. So I call today for... More

Good food for the price. service can be slow at times but very attentive when they arrive at table. Like anywhere else depends on who waits on you and how busy they are.

Wanted good italian food. Read all the great reviews. Looked like just what I wanted. Went with a colleague. Monday night not many people. Waitress was nice but did no smile. She told us what the specials were. She spoke so fast I caught a little of each item. One sounded good. Scrod with calamata olives and a light maranara.... More
