We just wanted to get some gelato or sorbet. The menu had two options: small portion (one scoop) for $3 or 3 scoops for $8. My wife and I each ordered a portion of sorbet. It was really good, no question about it, but I asked the waiter if this was a portion and she responded "yes". So each of... More

A local restaurant that disappointed us about a year or so ago. We decided to return and ate there on Christmas Eve. The maître de was welcoming and pleasant, service was great and the food delicious. We will definitely return.

Sometimes when you wander you stumble across amazing restaurants; this was not one of those occasions. A group of us had lunch here on a whim and it was one of the worst meal out I've had in a long time. The calamari was sad and soggy while the pasta dishes both appeared unappetizing and lived down to their promise.... More

I haven't ever seen an establishment working so hard at earning my good favor. So much so it prompted me to ask if they've been open long and they eluded to some shifting in management recently. He was so happy and eager to make sure we had a wonderful time it really made me eager to write this review and... More

Over priced and not overly good. I ordered the fish and it was small and over a bed of carrots. The bread was stale and the service was fair at best.

Bored with Hotel food then this is in a great location on Montague Street near all the local amenities and a short walk to the famous promenade. I suggest you do the walk after the meal as... More

I've eaten here 4 times now; the service can be a little slow when it's busy, but they are very nice, and they really do all they can to accommodate you. I've never had a dish that wasn't great, and neither have my friends. It's a little steep on certain items, but the portions are good, and the food is... More
