Too tiny for comfort. Food was good but the teeny tiny dining space made the dining experience rather miserable.

Lemon Ricotta pancakes were delicious! We were seat in the far end , circle room and it was awesome in there! I felt like we were nestled amongst the mossy knolls in Ireland.

Requested a specific table on a Saturday night which the restaurant was able accommodate. Service was very good, attentive but not overbearing. Twice, the owner stopped by to make certain our group (4) was doing well and happy. Lobster ravioli and spinach ravioli were very good, house and Cesar salads with plenty of delicious bread. Desert was chocolate creme brulee which no one in our group had tasted before, it was tasty. Overall, a very nice night out, nice ambiance especially on the Bar side, a lot of work went went into the decor.

Service was great, food was great, and they have a really nice atmosphere. We picked this restaurant on a recommendation of a friend and because they have such a large selection of gluten free items.

Sangria is amazing!

The atmosphere was beautiful. We were on the bar side. The scallops were amazing and my husband had the pork. Our first batch of bread was hard but the second was perfect. Our table loved the entrees but appetizers and dessert not so much.

This is the third time I’ve tried this restaurant since the renovations and new owners. My overall impression is mediocre. The ambiance is amazing, service was good, but I’m missing the food of the old place. Blah sauce on the lasagna. Too much ricotta. No salt on the piccata. The menu has changed dramatically and is not solely Italian cuisine. And the prices have taken a huge leap. I’m left searching for a new favorite Italian restaurant.

Our server seemed to lack experience... brought us the wrong wine, failed to refill waters. Food was average and overpriced. I was surprised bread did not come with the meal. There are better alternatives for Italian in downtown Brighton and other restaurants that are a better value.

I’ve been here for dinner before and loved it. I recently wine for brunch, and was a little disappointed. The menu was pretty limited, and a tad overpriced. I had to pay $2 extra for and egg white omelette vs whole eggs. The service was good, though! I’d go back, but probably not for brunch.

The food was mediocre at best. Two of us had the Etoufee (one entree each) a seafood pasta dish. Expensive dish for not a lot of seafood. $28 for 3 scallops and 3 shrimp. Angel hair pasta was overcooked. There was plenty of pasta but not worth even taking the extra home. One of us had a sandwich, one sangria the rest water and the total bill cost was $100 . Are you kidding me? We used to eat there 2 times a week. It is not the same. Do not waste your time or $. Oh and they now charge $5 if you share an entree with someone. We wont be back.

Table was crowded and in a very tight space. Food was uninspired and just ok. Price seemed high for quality and quantity of food. No soup or salad unless you picked up the price in addition to your meal. Not planning a return trip

overpriced, and DARK--we had to use the flashlight on out phones to see the menu AND the food when it arrived. The wait staff asked four times for our drink order--which their menu was limited (unless you are into Italian wine); then she hovered at our elbow killing any private conversation. The food was good--but $5-$10 over the going rate.

They have fresh ingredients and menu items that sound appealing but every time we have been there they miss the mark. It is almost like they try to do too much and the flavors don't work, or on the other end of the spectrum they didn't season the food enough.
