Good Italian in a Cozy Small Town Setting

Well prepared food and good service near the river in Cold Spring. Menu has an overall Italian bent. All items are well done and equal to a good Italian restaurant in Manhattan. They do not accept credit cards but have cash machine to allow you to make withdrawals on a debit card.

Fabulous restaurant, fantastic food, exceptional attentive wait staff, fresh fish cooked to perfection! Lunch in the winter is private and special.

Super friendly attentive service. COD with risotto was Devine. Pork chop was done to perfection as was the ravioli and the rigatoni bolognese Tiramisu for dessert was light and tasty

The service was fine, the food average. I ordered the grilled steak sandwich and the meat was rather chewy, which made it difficult to eat without making a mess because with every bite a whole chunk of meat would come out the sandwich.

I met my cousin here for lunch on my way back home to Long Island. The leaves were in full color and the views were incredible. The lunch menu was basically a few different pizzas, a steak sandwich and a few different pasta's. Definitely adequate for lunch.

This restaurant is located in a beautiful spot and especially beautiful on a fall afternoon. The mountains and Hudson River are a wonderful backdrop.. I had a Moroccan Peanut soup that was out of this world and eggplant parmesan that was terrific. My husband had calamari that he said was the best he ever had and a flounder dish that... More

After a morning sightseeing we looked forward to lunch. Though not the fault of the restaurant and more the area with which they have to operate, the parking was not only cramped but also actually a bit dangerous. Hard to describe but caution is required to both park and pull out. Congested, strange angles, made to fit in more cars,... More
