We chose Bossanova as it was the only place open to grab dinner on a Monday. We had heard positive reviews, so we thought we'd try it out. The first thing we noticed was the noise. If you're looking for a place that you can actually talk to the people you're with, this is not your place. The food was... More

Good news it was open on a Monday. Drinks looked good; I had wine. But my pizzette was pretty gummy and for a vegetarian pizza it was mostly cheese. Won't return.

We come here on a regular basis, the food is always up to par. The drinks here are on the expensive side. Great place to go when the weather is nice. The huge windows up front open all the way letting in the a very nice breeze.

I have only eaten the pizza at Bossanova's and it is delicious. Always pipping hot and very tasty. However, I have had many a martini and they are awesome. My favorites are the chocolate martini and the banana flavored martini. One is always enough. If I were to drink two! I would need to carries out of the place.

The lobster Rangoon was to die for. The bar had a great atmosphere and the staff was very friendly. The flat bread pizza was great.

My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary with a stay in the area. Our hostess recommended this restaurant. We enjoyed the tasteful modern furniture and a huge painting on the wall behind the bar that was lovely. The food was very good. I ordered the fish tacos which came out in "parts" that I could put together. At... More
