I ate at this restaurant three times, once with 8 people, once with 6 people and the other time with 4 people. Once I was about an hour early and waited at the bar for my group. The bartenders were friendly and talkative, which I appreciated. When my party all arrived we were seated promptly. The service was standard. The... More

This restaurant is in need of more staff or faster employes. It's a very nice and clean place, but the service is just so slow! Our waitress was very nice and helpful with our party of nine. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals, but after sitting there for almost three hours we where all ready to leave! Would probably skip... More

Nice, comfortable surroundings, a wide menu selection and attentive friendly service. The meal was delicious and the portions were very generous. Exactly what you are looking for if you want to enjoy a casual evening with friends and great food. Located off the town green in Southington’s small town New England atmosphere adds to the ambiance.

I usually don't write reviews unless something is exceptionally bad or exceptionally great. For this instance I am happy I can write about the latter. We have been to this restaurant a few times prior and loved the food. This occasion we came on a fairly busy Sunday evening and my wife and I were looking for some quick good... More

Had reservations for 7:30 and the table was ready upon arrival. Sat down, was greeted and ordered a round of drinks. Drinks took a little longer than normal to get, but no huge deal. Ordered a second drink when placing an appetizer order and those took even longer. Apps were good, actually finished them before we got our second drinks.... More

I have never left a restaurant before the main course was served.... Until last night. An hour and 20 minutes passed from when we were seated until we decided to leave. Got our salad and soup and drink order quickly but that was it. It wasn't til an hour and fifteen minutes in that our server came to apologizing profusely... More

We made reservations for 10 on a Saturday evening. We arrived on time and were seated immediately at a table that had been already set up. We had one waiter that was assigned to our table who was very efficient throughout our entire meal. The menu consisted of a relatively large variety of appetizers, entrees and pizzas. Prices were reasonable... More

The scene is casual, the food is excellent and I would recommend this restaurant highly. During the summer there is outdoor seating available. Always a good time.
