Upscale restaurant with high price point for the area, great for date night

There are a few things Incontro does well. Ambiance, Food, Drink. Service is generally good, but the feel of the restaurant when you walk in gives off a somewhat pretentious vibe. Prices are considerably higher than most other area restaurants, they require free valet parking on weekends (the... read more

We had a wonderful experience here. The food was perfection, the Tiramisu was the best I have ever had and made in house, wine list was exceptional and our server, Dino, was a real professional. Dark, quieter and nicely appointed we felt welcome immediately. Made from an old Mill, the high ceilings in the entryway are spectacular so don't forget... More

This is a reliable place that we frequent because it has a good choice of options depending on whether we want pizza or a steak. We usually sit downstairs at the bar and have always had great service, particularly from Aaron. I would recommend their pizzas - they have a beautiful open pizza oven so you can actually watch your... More

I have been here several times since their opening and always had a positive and enjoyable experience. Good food and service. I was here last Friday night and sat at in a chair in the upstairs lounge area joining my relatives (12 wonderful ladies) for a bite to eat. After sitting there for 1/2 hour a bartender ( Brian) came... More

We have gone to Incontro since it opened. Sometimes for dinner and sometimes for drinks in the lounge. The last visit may be our last. As it is cold here, we thought that we would go for a drink and sit upstairs by the fireplaces. Well, that wasn't going to happen as they weren't even lit. Seriously, why have them... More

Hadn't been here in a while. Excellent dinner tonight with my wife. The varied menu makes it easy to please everyone. She enjoyed the salad special and some pizza. I loved my pork chop... grilled to perfection. They changed it from 2 chops to one giant chop. Was tender and excellent. The spinach and baked potato was also nicely done.... More

This is our standard place for business events, as they have a 12 table billiard room that you can rent all or part of near the bar. The drinks are made well and the food is very good - Caesar salads and burgers are amazing here. Fine dining in the lower floor and more business casual upstairs. The bartenders and... More

Had dinner reservations for 8:30. Wasn't seated until 9:45 . Many people that came after us were seated, even walk-ins. Waited still for our food to arrive - tuna tartar mediocre. Filet and risotto ok , very nice atmosphere in restaurant but will not come back due to disorganization of the service. Boston prices in the suburb of Franklin -... More

This place has great ambiance. They did a really good job converting the old mill. They left the exposed beams which keeps the place feeling warm and cozy. The food is very good. They have the best caesar salad with chicken around and a great wine list!
