Went here based on reviews. It did not disappoint. Visited on a Friday night around 5:30. No wait and was very quiet. Service was fantastic! Food was delicious! If visiting Falmouth you must try it. Great for a romantic dinner.

perhaps the best dinning experience I have had on Cape Cod. The menu, the staff, and of course the food. Save room for desert.

I am celebrating my 75 birthday and need a gluten free dinner. Could you advise me on this? Will need reservation on Sept. 13 at 7 pm for 8. What is possible to make this a special occasion .

Pretty much everything but the gnocchi is gluten free. As far as reservations, you'd have to call them and ask.
