We tried this on an over night stop in Keene. It was amazing. Truly authentic Italian food artfully prepared. I had an appetizer of polenta that was amazing. This is a must if you are in Keene.

Service is slow and my experience is that the food is not as great as people say. Setting is lovely and bar scene is good.
