We LOVED our dinner here! Highly recommend for a special occasion or just because. Understated elegance, creative and delicious seasonally-inspired food; truly beautiful grounds. Relaxing environment where the welcoming and kind staff made us feel like we were invited to a private dinner party. We never felt rushed; from start to finish, the dinner experience was about 3 hours, starting with cocktails while enjoying the grounds. It was fun to share a table with other folks; created a sort of family feel.

Willy’s is consistently great, and this time was no exception! Celebrating a friends birthday. We ordered 3 steaks, and a vegetarian sushi roll, as well as the boneless buffalo wings, two rounds of truffle fries (because they’re that good!) and Mac and Cheese. Everything was delicious, the steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides complimented everything superbly. Our server, Lily, was attentive and on top of things. The entire experience at Willy’s is exceptional - the staff is incredible and the food is terrific. I will be back (and soon), and would recommend Willy’s to anyone looking to enjoy a delicious dining experience.

we are regulars here for dinner. Food is always pretty good. They added a kids menu the day before we brought our three kids which is kind of cool. No complaints.

I love Leo's and have been dining there for years. It is 16 miles from my house and well worth the drive. The veal dishes are my particular favorites. Everything is fresh and well prepared.

I’ve been coming here at Sonoma for last 2 weeks every Tuesday for professional meetings and had to say that the food and the waiting staff is so good. I’m definitely coming back next week for one more delicious meal and a cocktail..

Casta Diva was founded on the idea that the people of Central Massachusetts shouldn’t have to go all the way to the North End to get real, fresh Northern Italian cuisine.

It is always great at Casta Diva! Our server was prompt and efficient without being overbearing or intrusive during our meal and made certain everything was perfect. The food at Casta Diva is consistently great, and it is wonderful that they have many gluten free options.
