Romantic Night

My fiancée and I visited for the first time last weekend and were pleased with our service. We were immediately greeted by the lovely hostess and enjoyed the special twist on classic Italian dishes. Definitely recommended for a night out with a loved one.

My wife and I visited last December and were both underwhelmed. The service was good but the food had the taste of generic institutional food, I know it was not just my palate that was "off" that evening because my wife thought the same thing. We were seated along the windows and the tables are too close together. The total... More

I took my wife for a special birthday dinner. We told the staff we were on a tight schedule and we were seated and served promptly. The decorations are breath taking and the service is fantastic. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone passing through Southington or a nearby town.

I've been going to this restaurant since it has opened and it has never disappointed. I usually get their fish of the day which you can tell is always fresh. The owners are always there greeting their customers making sure everything is good! Best time of year to see this restaurant is when it's decorated for the Christmas season!

I went there recently with my boyfriend and we were blown away. He highly enjoyed the Chicken Parm ($20) and I loved my Chicken Marsala ($20). We each got a house salad ($5) and two glasses of Cab ($8). They have one of the biggest wine selections I've ever seen! The server was very polite and personable making it an... More

I come here with my family on a weekly basis. My daughter has a gluten allergy, and a dairy allergy. The staff always does a great job of recommending entrees and assuring us that her food will be gluten and dairy free. My daughter usually gets Chicken Marsala substituted with gluten free pasta and she cannot get enough!

A couple Monday's ago, I stopped in after work with a few colleagues, with out a reservation. I was thinking that it was a Monday night we should be good but it was packed! The manager and host assured us that we would still receive a table. The 6 of us sat at a beautiful table. We started off with... More

I wasn't at all impressed. Food portions are small when you consider the price paid. Wait staff was good, but the place is kind of dark. It's located off the beaten path as well.

The holiday decorations, which stay up until the end of January, are worth the trip. The service is slow, however as we waited for our drinks far too long. I had the Grecian Chop salad, supposedly containing tomatoes (one or two grape), calamata olives (nope), cucumbers (nope), red onion (nope), and feta (a few specks). The portion size was very...
