    This restaurant unfortunately is attached to a Best Western which probably turns a lot if people off. It shouldn't be an issue. Very pretty inside and food was excellent. The owner plans great things for the Fall, Sunday brunch and outdoor dining to name just 2. Please try it.

    It was wonderful to discover a quiet spot with delicious well-prepared dishes and personal service. I would definitely return to escape the crowds and noise level of most other restaurants on a Friday night.

    So disappointed. Had a 6:30 res for 7/6/14. Got to the restaurant and they weren't even open. I went out of my way with a party of 5 and had to search for a place to eat. I should have got a notification that I would not be able to done there that evening

    I was coming from the west coast and booked this for a rehearsal dinner. I booked it based on other reviews. The food, service, and atmosphere was perfect! The owner provided superior service and was very accommodating. He helped make a special occasion perfect. I highly recommend this restaurant. It will be on my list on my next east coast visit.

    The regular menu is deliciously outstanding and the specials offer a unique and flavorful dining experience. Try the straciatella soup. The service is the best in RVC!

    This restaurant is strictly for the hotel guests who either don't know of the fine restaruants in the surrounding neighborhood or just want to grab a quick bite before turning in. A very limited menu.
