I had the worst meal of my life here. Went back again and got the worst service. Will not go again. Wallingford and the surrounding towns have lots of wonderful restaurants. This is not one of them

Surprisingly tasty meals at this small restaurant on Center Street. It has a nice selection of wine and fantastic bread to accompany your meal. The only negative of our lunch was the glaring sun coming in the windows directly into the eyes of half our table. But in December, that much sun is appreciated.

Had a very nice anniversary dinner with my wife and it was an extremely pleasant experience. Excellent food and our waiter Ed was exceptional. Very attentive to our needs and terrific conversation. He was genuinely interested in our meals and comfort. As good as I've ever had. Will be back.

I have been here a number of times and the food is always delicious. The servers are very pleasant and helpful. It is a smaller place and it gets packed some nights so it can feel cramped and loud. The decor is dated but the tasty food makes it worthwhile.
