Mother’s Day. This is not fine Italian dining by any means a small step above Olive Garden if you ask me. though people seem to have enjoyed it. Just not for me.

W ere there for a Mother's Day buffet. The food quality and offering was great. Flavorful not bland. From roast beef to fish to the omelet station, it's cuisine was indicative of a high end restaurant. I can't say the same for the dessert however. It was catered, I'm guessing, and mostly soggy. Creme brulee went fast, cheese cake was gritty, ffresh fruit was good, pastissierre was soggy. Overall, I would go to the restaurant again for a simple dinner or lunch. I trust the Food will be better.

Nice ambiance and service, but if like my family you’re into Italian seafood, they over cook it.our seared tuna was cooked through.

The Easter Brunch is fabulous. Selection of food items is varied, with something for every diet. The dessert table perhaps best of all even surpassing the oysters.

Server was excellent, attentive, and didn't quibble about my ordering a starter as an entree. We have been here before and always find good food and decent prices. This time the polenta I had was too salty. Otherwise everything else was fine.

Friday evening, 7:30. Restaurant about half-full. We liked the open feel of the dining room. Service was very good. Prices are less than comparable area restaurants.

Their house version of a Manhattan is called a "ryes up." Good cocktail but, in my opinion, should have been served with a cherry. Portions are generous. Food was good -- but some misses. The grilled mozzarella and prosciutto appetizer picked up the flavor of the grill and tasted burnt. My wife like the special, stuffed chicken breast entree. I had the special swordfish and calamari entree. Swordfish was perfectly cooled - but the calamari was tough and chewy.

Disappointing first visit but we'll try them again.

I’m not the biggest fan of Italian food, maybe because I always feel too full with all the pasta. Not a problem here, with at least 6 choices of salads. I had the Brussels sprouts salad with goat cheese and not only was it delicious and satisfying (great portions!) but we were served within 5 minutes of ordering, on a Friday night! The ambiance was great for kids, we had 4 in our party and they colored all over they paper on the table after they finished with their kiddie page. I also had then minestrone soup and the veggies in it were SO fresh. Everyone at the table loved what they ordered. My husband had the butternut squash ravioli and I stole a taste and the sauce it was in was so flavorful.

Plus on tons of vegetarian choices, good for kids, good value and great food.

Great menu, including gluten free options. Service is excellent, handled a group of 11 very well.
Only one suggestion: very few, if any, single malt scotch selections from the bar.

Despite making reservations, we had to wait 10-15 minutes to get a table. They said they're reservations were all backed up. They had a special going on for V day, with very reasonable prices. Food was decent, but nothing to rave about. The ambiance and service were great. Another nice perk, they wrapped our wine bottle to go since we didn't finish.

Disclaimer: I cook a lot and have very high standards but this is in my village so decided to try it. Pleasantly surprised at the food. 4/6 entrees were very flavorful including gluten-free options. Steamed mussels and chicken special were delicious! Gnocchi with short rib was very salty but tasty. Gluten-free linguini with Frutti di mare was spectacular when paired with Montepuliciano wine.
