Supposed to go farther afield but the weather was not good. Hadn't been her in a long time. Arrived early (around 5:15) and were seated immediately. Hostess and wait staff very attentive. Mostly Italian cuisine with other dishes as well. Their "hot rocks" cooking is interesting as they bring the very hot rocks to your table and then you can... More

For lunch or dinner, this place is a treat--good food, good service, nice atmosphere. The restaurant doesn't take reservations, but during the off-season it's easy to get a table at dinner or at lunch. The menu is varied with good fish and italian dishes.

My husband and I came to Mystic for a long weekend. We were looking for a good restaurant not in Mystic village. Absolutely amazing. Calamari cooked to perfection and our entrees were just as good. Wait staff and bartender very friendly. Highly recommend and we'll be back again

This is a warm and welcoming place just one minute walking distance from the famous Mystic Bridge. We sat at the bar for a while and met friendly couples, then moved to a dinner table. Lighting and overall noise level are both low which is really nice for a couple out on date night. Service was enthusiastic and professional and... More

We ate there Halloween night. Soups Minstrone and a du jour: Roasted eggplant and tomato, both terrific and served HOT. Greatly appreciated on a chilly night. Served with good crusty bread and a good roasted garlic oil. yum. Our entrees, shrimp scampi super good, and lobster ravioli good. Good coffee. We'll be back again.
