Diner Reviews
  • "Delicious entrees and wines. My wife and I love dining at this little bistro every week. The chef makes all from scratch. Last week we ordered the Veal Bolognese & Pasta and the Garlic Shrimp. Nice selection of wines at a good price...2 for 1! Nice atmosphere, feels like New York."

  • "We were in the area and had heard about this cute little restaurant nearby. Quite impressed by the high quality ingredients and the love the Chef puts into each menu item we ordered, The service was good a paced nicely for us to enjoy our dinner and each others company. The wines also remarkable. We tasted a few different ones to explore the listing, and we were impressed as well, especially at the low pricing for the high quality. We also ready have plans to dine here again next week with some friends."

  • "went with a couple to try the restaurant. It's small but did not have the feel of being crowded. Nice atmosphere. Good menu and our waitress was very helpful. The young lady must have been nervous....she kept forgetting items we needed to eat our dinner with. It was a pleasure to dine on tasty food....the signature dish of gulf shrimp was good(I snagged one from my husband). The salmon was equally delicious. Loved the French onion soup...will go back and get take out. And the mini-dessert of chocolate mousse and creme' brulee was delicious too. It was a pleasure to talk with the chef after our meal, and he described how he cooks his dishes. Nice touch. Meeting Mr. and Mrs. Avila was a pleasure. I wish them well."

  • "The food here is good, and my wife and I are glad we ate here. The cocktails on the other hand... the two glasses of wine my wife ordered were not priced properly on the menu, and when the bill came it was a bit of a surprise to be $2 a glass more. I had two gin martinis and was extremely surprised by the fact that they were $12 apiece!! I haven't paid that much for martinis since the last time we dined in NYC or Washington DC, or any other major city. To pay $12 for a martini, in a small martini glass, in Torrington, CT is a bit ridiculous. The only complaint about the food was the desert. We ordered the duo "sampler" of mousse and creme brûlée, both personal sample sizes.... also $12!"

  • "Lots of chatter in the area about this great little find, and nice reviews too. We were very pleased with the menu, some classic dishes with the freshest ingredients, extensive preparation, and nice presentation. The dining room is adorable and service very friendly. Wines are a must and a great value. Dined here for date nite, and will be back again and again."

  • "The restaurant tries very hard. The food is fresh and prepared as ordered and nicely done. The chef does what he does well. The staff is pleasant. With a good chef in the kitchen, I would like to see a more interesting menu. The selections were limited but also limited in originality. It is supposed to be Spanish influenced but we found no hint of real Spanish. I would try them again if I check the menu and there are newer choices. I think the chef/owner could rise to the occasion. I hesitated to answer yes to recommend because of my above noted comments."
