    Have dined here many times. Prices have definitely gone up but did not stop us from dining again. My salmon dish was dry and boring, the accompanied asparagus was grilled nicely. My husband enjoyed the chicken Milanese! It was tender and delicious. The wedge salad was tasty.

    While food was excellent the inside room on an early Sunday afternoon was noisy. Outside covered dining area was very attractive but unfortunately was not available.

    Always a great experience due to the friendly and helpful staff and of course the food is outstanding. The new Salmon dish might just be the best salmon I’ve ever had, already know we are ordering it again next time!

    This used to be one of our favorite go to restaurants. I realize prices went up everywhere but it was beyond obvious last night. Our friends were with us and when they left they said “maybe next time we should bring our own bread” in addition to our wine. Spending $35+ for an entree, they now charge for bread service! Really! And what used to cost $27 for the steak noodle bowl now costs $34. Big jump! The ice cream that three of us ordered was a child’s portion. I was so embarrassed - our friends couldn’t believe the portion size. The manager was great and comped us for the desserts. It is not his fault This is the owner, Jamie, being greedy. It will be a long time before we go back unfortunately. We have other favorites in surrounding towns.

    Overall a very good experience for our first time dining here. Food was a bit pricey but we were all satisfied with our meals. We tried the juice flight and got to taste test the different juices. That was a good experience. We were also able to sit outside and enjoy the singer/guitar player. Service was good. I would good back again.

    Great food, outdoor space comfortable, but live music was too loud. Hard to make connections. Wanted outdoors to be able to make conversations, but difficult.

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are currently looking into some other options for our live music setup, but we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience otherwise. TJ Cecire General Manager
