We thought we were going to a Brio/Bravo chain restaurant ( which we like) , but boy, were we pleasantly surprised... the owner Russ will be quick to tell you he has been there on there for 23 years... long before the Brio/Bravo group got started. And is was far superior... what a great... read more

Stopped here for dinner to meet friends while waiting for a cruise. All I can say is that the food was amazing. Portions are excellent. Fresh buns. Prices are a little high... But totally Worth it. There is a deal where there are ten entrees offered for 10$ each, or five appetizers for 5$ each. I would totally recommend this... More

Went for dinner based on a recommendation from the concierge of our hotel. So glad we went. After being on a cruise for two weeks, we just wanted some good homemade food. It didn't disappoint. Great wine, awesome food and quick service. We each had a nice salad served with warm bread. My husband had lasagna and I had a... More

This was our favorite place to eat while staying at the near-by Renaissance Hotel. Our waitress was very friendly and experienced. The food was fresh and had a creative presentation. Prices were very reasonable. We dined outdoors both times we went there. The meal started with garlic rolls which were soooo good. Great meal and great service two days in... More

This is our fifth time here, it's in the neighborhood and always good. Nice large room with low lighting.. This visit I had the Veal Tenderloin, so good. Victoria had the Penne Vodka which she...

I was staying in the area for a workshop and just happened upon the place while walking. The atmosphere is inviting with low lighting and pleasing décor. LOVED the pasta fagioli and I come from a long line of Italian cooks in the family. I don't remember the name of the dish I had but it was a rigatoni pasta... More

I ordered a luncheon special of the day, which was rigatoni with pesto sauce, roasted red peppers, pine nuts, goat cheese, and chicken. My attentive waiter allowed me to swap out the rigatoni pasta for whole wheat pasta. This entrée was preceded by a cup of pasta fagioli soup and a garlic roll. The soup was quite tasty, and thick...
