This last trip was just for dessert and a glass of wine. They have a great wine list and their molten lava cake is by far the best I have ever had. We have eaten dinner here before going to Fairfield Theater Company Stage One shows and keep going back. Great food, service and atmosphere.

A nice treat to eat downtown at a classy, Italian restaurant. The ravioli was exceptional and The tomato sauce was one of the best ever eaten! From appetizers to desserts, a great Meal eaten in a pretty setting.

I made a reservation and planned for a fantastic evening. The ambiance is nice... bottom floor is a stand up bar with high tables around.... More

I was super excited to come to this place do you have a good glass of wine. The wine list was good but the food was average. Salmon tartare was not very good. It wasn't bad it was just missing something. The other diners I was with had the same experience. I would go back and give it another chance... More

This USED to be our favorite "go to" restaurant for special occasions -- birthdays, Valentine's, anniversary -- the elegant dining room with high ceilings and tablecloths always felt special, we got to know several waiters by sight, some by name, etc... however, the past two visits have been disappointing, and our last visit last evening was awful. We had brought... More

Wow this place is not just bad, it's really bad. The service was horrendous (actually it was non-existent), the food was over-cooked (I had linguine and clams while my friend had a chicken dish - both over-cooked), the portions were small and is was expensive ($18 for a hamburger and fries? Really?). The restaurant was very crowed on a Saturday... More

We had a reservation for 10 people for 8 pm and the hostess was very disorganized. She sat us at our table, but we were missing napkins. Took them awhile, but we finally got the napkins. The wait staff was slow and not very attentive. When the wine was ordered, they brought the wine, but not the year that we... More

My wife and I love wine and the menu looked good to us so we gave it a shot. Based on some of the reviews here I was skeptical. We arrived at 5:15 on Sunday. It was not very busy but was much busier by the time we left at around 7. We were promptly seated. The 40% off on... More

We've been here several time and it was very good. Saturday nights were jammed. When for my birthday on Friday night, the restaurant was practically empty. The food was barely o.k. There were four different dishes ordered and no one was impressed at all. Don't mind paying if the food is good. Overpriced for the quality. Not to mention the... More

I've passed this place a number of times and have always seen it as a wine bar, so passed it by. It turns out, this was a great surprise. We went somewhat later at night, were seated quickly, and had a great meal. Service was decent, food was great, prices were in-line with expectations. They have a huge interior space... More
