It's basically a house turned into a restaurant. Buffet food was OK, decent selection, but certainly nothing too spectacular. Dessert was poor, maybe because there was nothing I liked.

In a historic building just off the Colchester Green in the center of town. Excellent rack of lamb! Always have unique specials. Italian Sunday brunch includes many favorite Italian dishes. Can be noisy when there is a full house. Take out from regular menu also available

Great little bistro in old carriage house, great atmosphere. Love the Mount Etna mussels! Walking in brings you for a moment in time to Italy, with Italian cheeses and meats and fresh vegetables. Very nice!

One good thing about NUNUs is having Jack entertain you, he is always pleasant and has done a great job with the brunch. Everyone I speak with agrees the brunch is a step above. Paul West , Norwich, Ct.

Had short ribs that weren't so short. Excellent taste and plenty to eat. Highly recommend. Don't forget to bring your own wine.

I went here two months ago and ordered the rack of lamb medium rare. It arrived rare and very salty. I chose to not send it back as we had waited a long time to get our order taken and were very hungry. Ordered scallops as appetizer and they were pretty tasty. We decided to give it a second chance,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us for lunch by the lady at Cato Corner Farm, a cheese farm in Colchester, CT. ( I will review that location under a separate cover.) We thought "why not?" Even if we had read the mixed reviews here on tripadvisor we ultimately decided that we probably still would have gone. What a mistake. We... More
