Pasta like everything else here is made from scratch. Very easy to tell as the taste is awesome. Chocolate cake is sooo smooth and rich it is to die for .

Party of 4 for Valentines only 1/2 pleased. One steak not done as requested and sent back- medium well isn't hard I thought.. The other disappointment was the Greek Pizza; simple right, but was also unfortunately poorly done... soggy crust from feta cheese or fresh tomatoes who knows but really... this shouldnt be Greek to you. Pizzas are your Brand... More

Absolutely love this place. Every time I'm in town I stop by for a meal. The Thai Chicken Pasta is by far the greatest culinary delight Bistro offers. The pasta is done to perfection, the chicken is fresh and tender, and the sauce is the perfect balance between spicy and sweet. The staff is always friendly and give excellent service.... More

Very popular restaurant. Best to book if you are staying longer than one day. We waited a long time to get our ordered meal. Delicious but not generous portion compare to other restaurant we went to. Would still recommend it. Live music the night we were there. It is small restaurant but very welcoming.

The Thai Chicken Pasta & Thai Chicken Pizza is delicious...just a hint of heat. Nice atmosphere, not rushed.

The clubhouse meal here is amazing. The best I have had. Top this meal off by sharing a piece of carrot cake and you have a meal fit for a king!
