Best chicken and veal dishes in town

Chicken Cordon Bleu is to die for. Would drive considerable distances for dishes like these. Have enjoyed this place through two management styles and have never been disappointed.

I usually eat there for lunch because my friends like it. I find their salads, my usual selection, mediocre. The portions are small and I think the price is high for what you get. The service is friendly and the ambiance is nice.

Great wine suggestions for the steak and lamb. THEIR ARTICHOKE APPETIZER IS A DELIGHT FOR THE EYES,,,,fanned out like a flower and just as tasty. Very enjoyable all the... More

The food here is usually good. Not great, just good. The outdoor seating is very lovely and quiet if you are near the front. If you are closer to the back, then you get more of the kitchen noise. Service is hit or miss. Sometimes you get a great server and sometimes you are completely ignored. I feel the menu... More

We go there 1-2 times monthly. Never had a bad meal. Basic Italian-light menu. Safe for all tastes. Veal is good, but better down the street at Da Mario. Their menu, on the other hand, is very limited.

I haven't been here for years, and my friends and husband went here for lunch on Friday because the patio was inviting. The menu has typical Italian offerings like ravioli and lasagna and the yummy fresh-baked bread delivered to the table. One nice lunchtime surprise is a combo menu where for $13 you can choose from a limited list of... More

If you are a bread lover like me, you won't be disappointed. The bread is made on site, brought to the table warm, and is gooey heaven. Large diverse menu. Setting is quaint in and old house. You really feel like you are eating in someone's house. The caeser salad was good, as was minestrone soup and Bella salad. Everyone... More

With the place half empty, after being seated and ordering our food, the wait for food was at least half an hour. The chianti was turning bad, but I did not send it back. The steak was dry (I ordered medium rare). My plate was mixed up with another's, so we had do a mealtime swap. I felt like a... More
