I typically lunch here twice a week and really enjoy the daily Express Lunch. Highly recommend you arrive early as the Bistro fills up quickly. The service is always great and the food is amazing.

Sovana Bistro is one of our favorites. They have been providing gourmet dining in the suburbs now for years and continue to deliver a high quality experience that rivals many "big city" restaurants.

Hidden away in the back corner of a shopping center this fine restaurant is always good. In nice weather you can dine outside. Staff is friendly. Prices are reasonable.

I'd skip Sovana and make reservations at Catherine's (in Unionville) - just a couple of miles down the road. Sovana was a disappointing experience the last two times we visited.
