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.

It seemed that the BYOB culture of this area lead to result of the place having a bar overcrowded with bar business. It claims to be a craft cocktail place but really is a beer and wine bar with bad dry tasteless pizza.

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.
