    Great dinner! Best pork chops my husband ever had & my steak tips were like butter. Started with salads that were delicious & we could have made a meal on the warm faccochia bread. First time here & highly recommend!

    I cannot stress enough how amazing the food was. My husband and I got a bunch of different seafood dishes and shared everything, so delicious. Especially the swordfish entrée. We sat outside which was lovely, and there was a wonderful musician playing. Our service was just a little slow, but I really don’t know how busy our server was because we could not see inside from where we were and there were only a few tables outside.

    We had the braised beef which was delicious, even with the unexpected garnish of dark chocolate. My wife had a chicken salad sandwich that was very good. The wine recommendation was on point and the Sazerac was perfect.

    My husband and I got married at this location and have gone back for our anniversary every year since. We continue to thoroughly enjoy our dinners when we are there! Staff are always courteous; food is always good; despite wine options having changed from when we got married, we continue to find wines we enjoy on their menu.

    Cute and quaint. Very small space, so would encourage a reservation. My filet was slightly over cooked to more of a medium-well when medium was requested. The shrimp and scallop skewers were delicious. Would go back whenever we are in PA again.

    Arancini was too spicy, Caesar salad was awkward to eat because the plate was so small and very little Romaine lettuce. The recommended Red Drum Fish was dry, the couscous was tasteless and the asparagus spears were ordinary.

    I had an absolutely fabulous evening. Started with a drink at the bar. Really nice bartenders. Then to a comfortable table by a window. The shrimp scallop Akers were amazing. Then I had a new York strip cooked perfectly. Enjoyed with an awesome red wine suggested by the bartender. The strawberry short cake mmmm warm cake with chilled strawberries a dollop of whipped cream and fresh mint. Cant wait to come back to the area just to eat there again

    My husband and I had dinner for a special occasion. Be prepared for a very tasty meal but beware of a large food portion! We totally enjoyed our meal but had enough to take home for another meal. I would also recommend reservations, especially on Saturday. The restaurant was very busy, but it didn’t hold up our meals. I highly recommend this restaurant!
