Absolutely the best Mac and Cheese I've ever had

Bistro 22 is a lovely little spot in Truro's downtown. Having stopped in for lunch, I was blown away by the rich, creamy, delicious fare put before me. The lunchtime Mac and cheese arrive in a piping hot ramekin overflowing with golden brown cheese. At first I thought it might be too small a... read more

Homemade, local ingredients make for some delicious food at sweet setting in Downtown Truro. Lunch can get busy- but it's worth it! Yummy soup, paninis, and desserts as well.

Based on hotel recommendations and trip advisor reviews, we decided to have dinner at Bistro 22. The atmosphere is very bistro like and the food was out of this world! I was not expecting such great food, but my salmon was perfect as was my husband's prime rib. My dessert was amazing ( rum cake) and I only wish I... More

We enjoyed a lovely anniversary dinner at the recommendation of our B&B. The pace was slow and relaxed but it worked perfectly for us. Both entrees were great (stuffed pork chop & lemon chicken) and the desserts were fabulous.

Truro is more of a crossroad than a destination, but Bistro 22 in Truro should be a destination. We stopped there for lunch on a suggestion from "Taste of Nova Scotia". Without a GPS we never would have found it since it sits on an obscure one-block street with some other nice shops. We had a chicken pesto Panini and... More

We stumbled upon this delightful bistro quite by accident and were treated to a wonderful time. The salmon risotto with fresh basil pesto was superbly cooked ( and presented ) as was the lemon chicken. Our waitress was quite attentive and went out of her way to ensure we were pleased with our meals. A wonderful chef clearly works hard... More
