    This was our second time dining at this restaurant. The first time was phenomenal. The second time was equally fantastic. How often does that happen? This truly is a great gem in a really cute town. The place is small and cozy. The servers are attentive. The food is off the charts good. Gorganzola Chicken and Pasta for me!

    I dine here frequently It is truly one of my most favorite restaurants However most unfortunately last night was an off night for food I had two of my usual and favorite dishes The pasta gorgonzola was totally bland Not rich with lumps of the cheese as usual The server tried very nicely to make it better with more sauce and cheese brought to table but it missed The cheese seemed a lesser quality Then the pasta Lobster saffron was equally off the pasta was fine but the lobster way overcooked and tough Too bad to ruin such a delicate and usually delicious dish
