We decided to eat here based on the crowds that are usually outside when we drive by. That should have been out first clue when we got there it was almost empty at dinner time!! The drink I had tasted like dish soap. The meal was basic- grilled shrimp tiny baked potato and 3 asparagus spears!! for 20 bucks!! The... More

Amazingly large buffet with many trays of gluten-free items. Very rarely can my food sensitive family eat at a buffet at reasonable price. Sunday brunch is the ticket. We have eaten at Nonna Fina's twice now and each time was a treat. Casual fine dining with an Italian flare. Highly recommended for the traveler or local. We will return again.

This turned out to be an above average restaurant. We visited during peak lunch hours on a Tuesday with good weather and there was no one in the restaurant. Usually that is a sign to me that something is up. Is the food bad? Nope. Everything was good. We ordered grilled chicken fingers which were good. Haddock Italian sandwich which... More

Nice restaurant by looks. Food is average but pretty expensive. Good place to have big birthday dinners or a fancy meal but the food doesn't back it up. Can be a hit or miss.

We happened upon this place while on a motorcycle weekend in New York. It was a picture perfect summer day, the location is across form the water and the out door seating was relaxing. Our server, Jim, was friendly, helpful, and very patient while I figured out what I wanted. My husband had the lunch special; a monster of a... More

We went for mothers day and it was wonderful. My daughter and I had a pasta that was great. My son had shrimp that was terrific. Then my husband had BBQ and it was the best of all our dishes, incredible. The service and atmosphere was wonderful.

We went in for drinks and sat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly. We also met the owner who was also friendly and was interested in us. They made us feel welcome and it was a warm atmosphere. The next day we came in and had one of their pizzas. It was delicious. The view is great and... More

Wow! Where do we start with this place. The view of Lake Flowers from the outside tables is wonderful. That is the end of anything positive. Service is terrible, the food is terrible and the honesty is in question. The salad was OK. After that everything was downhill. We ordered an appetizer, but after the main course was served, we...
