Artisinal Pizzas are Outstanding; But Wait There's More!

We stopped here on our way to Longwood Gardens for lunch with another couple. Both guys are makers of pizza from scratch and have spent years perfecting their dough and toppings; and taste-testing others' pizza offerings. The wives thoroughly enjoy participating in the on-going experiments, so... read more

Visited with family on a weeknight. We had reservations and were seated right away. The waitress was very nice. After she took our order it took forever to get appetizers. We ate the whole breadbasket while waiting. Then it took even longer for the main course food to come out if the kitchen. One of the orders for the table... More

I don't know, maybe I'm just getting picky in my old age. Went on a crowded Friday night and service was excellent! Food was good but they need to do something about those narrow metal chairs with the tiny cushions! Not to mention the hard wooden benches! I'm not heavy and I still had trouble finding a comfortable way to... More

We hadn't been for a long time and I was pleased to see that the menu had a good selection of fresh local foods. I had fish tacos made with mahi and my husband had shrimp and grits. I thought his portion looked small. My tacos were excellent, loaded with guacamole and finely chopped pico de gallo.

We have eaten here three times in last two years. We drove an hour an ten from the King of Prussia area to enjoy Sovana. It truly wasn't as good as any of the other times. Our waiter, the Harry Connick lookalike was the highlight of the meal. The restaurant was loud but that we knew going in. The menu... More

We played golf at Kennett Country Club and stopped here afterwards for dinner -- it is very close to the golf course. Never heard of it -- a member at the golf course highly recommended it. And, I see why. There were 6 in our group. We got there later in the evening, with no reservation -- it was hopping... More

We just happened to be driving thru the area on our way home from a vacation looking for a dinner stop. This place came as a recommendation from a family member who is familiar with this area. We arrived at 5:45 so dinner crowd was just starting. Lovely modern décor. We had a most attentive waiter who explained the lager... More

The food is always good, I eat here a few times a month. The wait staff can be a little hit or miss but for the most part they are very attentive. My only real complaint is that they try to hard to cram to many tables is a tight space. When they are packed I won’t even bother going... More

Great farm to table menu with lots of daily specials served by knowledgeable staff. Can be crowded; make a reservation. Great patio dining space. Bar and BYOB. Pricey but good.
