I'm a foodie and often think my own cooking is better than what I eat out. This was really good. Started off with drinks but they didn't offer vodka Martini. However they mixed one ffor a person in the party. Was 15 bucks, but it WAS good. I had an oyster on the half shell starter in a vinegar sauce.... More

On a one day get away trip with my girlfriend we decided to try Circa 1922 for dinner. Everything went way above our expectations. The décor, service and ambience were terrific but nothing compare to the meal. from appetizer to dessert everything was phenomenal. The total cost was just over $115 for two including wine, appetizer, salad , entrée and... More

This is a nice place with excellent food. Expect those kinds of prices. However, it is worth every penny!

Enjoyed the quiet respite; not a place for children or pets! Adult drinks, sophisticated tapas and great for enjoying friends and conversation.

The chef does an incredible job of combining flavors and mixing up regular dishes. The wasabi ginger calamari is a must try. The menu had just been switched out, tried the spinach gnocchi, really tasty, a little less corn and a couple more gnocchi's would be good, but no complaints here, each dish was prepared beautifully and tasted perfect.

Brought 40 of our clients here recently for a 2 hour presentation. Really nice space upstairs that was configured beautifully for our crowd. Located in an historic downtown section, parking was a bit hard to snag but the dinner was great (as were the appetizers!) and the service was superb. Definitely coming back here if ever in Willington again!

I really love everything about this restaurant. It seems very fancy inside, but the value is pretty good. They have amazing drinks (try the Sangria!). I always order the Eggplant Parmesan. It's delicious and fairly cheap! The pianist plays some nights on the weekends and takes requests, which is pretty cool.

This place was wonderful!! The beat meal we had in Wilmington by far. The ambiance was lovely. A Saturday eve with piano player in the background. Service was very attentive with Bill as our waiter my fav tapa was the beet, pecan and gorgonzola salad. So delicious with such sharp gorgonzola. We loved the three tuna sushi dish also. Perfectly...
