On a visit to my son & daughter in law we enjoyed a relaxed, casual meal that was as if we were eating at home. The special appetizer ANDY was spicy and delicious, their unique house dressing (don't miss it) should be savored slowly and the shrimp Napoletone was perfect with artichoke and sun dried tomato. All served at a... More

Inviting, busy, warm and welcoming. Local, easy and generous with portions. Bar staff is fairly seasoned and quite good at making even a single guest feel as part of the "neighborhood family". I just tend to sit at the bar, solo--seems like the dining room is bustling for all the right reasons. Cold beer, delicious food and quite a nice... More

I see it as a perfect candidate for kitchen nightmares. Just got back and I am so disappointed I have to say something. My husband I made the mistake of getting dressed up when it's a very casual restaurant and I honestly felt like we were looked down upon like "who do they think they are?" We were offered the...

We just moved to Hamden, and went with friends to try this place since it's within walking distance. We had a 25 minute wait to eat outside (not unexpected), but since the weather was perfect we waited. The outdoor patio was a pleasant setting, except for the occasional loud motorcycle or hot-rodder going by. The bread and butter brought by... More

While out visiting my niece, got the name of this restaurant as a place to go. Wow! We had a wonderful dinner. While waiting for our table they actually brought us out some bruschetta to try. The restaurant is small and a little crowded but that actually is part of the atmosphere. Had mussels and calamari for appetizers and they... More
