Hardly anyone is eating here. Why? They make homemade pasta, which is quite good. Well, the service is always spotty, and tonight was no exception. We had a nice waiter, but come on, he didn't know the basics, and it's just a shame that you can't train your waitstaff. What would it take. The pasta was great, and the chicken... More

4 of us arrived for brunch at 10:30 Sunday without reservation. Despite a crowd we were quickly seated. In no time our drink orders were brought and food orders taken. 3 of us had the cereal crusted French toast with eggs and bacon. Hubby had Eggs Benedict and said they were great. Reasonable prices for a great meal.

The restaurant was empty after 1:00pm when we stopped for lunch. Nice decor, good service, and very good food. I had the antipasto calamares in tomato sauce and enjoyed it. Well worth the trip!

Stopped by while in town for a couple of days and enjoyed the delicious blueberry lemon drop martini and an amazing pineapple guava mimosa for brunch, both recommended by staff members. Had the eggs Benedict with lox in place of the pork and the chef was accommodating and it was quite good. I came very late on a Sunday and... More

We ate there on a Thursday evening. The restaurant is very nice, in fact surprisingly considering their location. The restaurant has an adjoining bar. There was live music the night we ate there, although we were in the restaurant side. Mostly Italian obviously but a variety and a very nice menu. The service was very good and attentive. Everything we... More

The cereal crusted French toast is incredible but the waiter was more interested in telling us about himself than taking orders or serving anyone. We waited over an hour for our ticket and when we mentioned it to the waiter he was snotty and rude saying no one made us stay - well actually he did since we couldn't leave... More

Filet with crab is very good. Service is good. I've also had the veal and it's good. But the bar! Best old-fashion in town. Try it for a special occasion and you'll be hooked. Desserts are good, too.
