Tuscan Village fare

The outdoor patio eating reminded me of Florence. The food is always made with the freshest, most delicate of ingredients. Farro salad is exquisite. All of the pasta dishes are wonderful.

We went here on a Friday night and ate out on the patio. The restaurant itself is not very big, but the "garden" area was larger than expected. The tables are a little tight, but we managed. Service was on the slow side, but the servers were running around at top speed, so it's not really there fault, it was... More

We were a family of five in town for the weekend. We had the Mediterranean Sea Bass and the Salmon with gnocchi. We ALL loved it! For dessert we had creme brulee and cannolies. Everything was perfect!! Our server Tara was excellent and very professional. Nothing was left on our plates. The atmosphere was elegant. RECOMMEND, recommend, recommend.

We had a front window table, which had wonderful ambiance. And the waiters were all very nice and responsive. Our only complaint was that the food was very salty -- over half of us didn't really like our dishes because of this over-salting. My mother loved the salmon though.

Our family enjoyed a delicious meal here and the service was warm and friendly. The chickpea ravioli and pasta ragu were standouts, as was the strip steak which was well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The vegetable sides (spinach and broccoli) were also nicely cooked and seasoned. The waitstaff was helpful and knowledgeable. They happily accommodated my daughter's request for plain... More

My husband and I eat here whenever we want to dine. The food is wonderful, tasty, artfully prepared and creative. The service is impeccable - there is plenty of wait time between courses to make conversation and have a leisurely meal. My only complaint is that sometimes the restaurant can be a little noisy, but other than that, we will... More
