Perfect choice to treat yourself to excellent cuisine~

Food was perfectly exquisite! Prices are reasonable for the quality. Service was excellent and right on time. Ambiance is calm and relaxing yet classy. Other patrons around us all seemed to be smiling and happy as well.

The wait staff was very welcoming and attentive. The olive oil was exceptional! The entrees were creative and scrumptious. The salads were small and expensive. Where's the roman lettuce? The brick oven pizzas looked awesome. One pizza can feed two. Two entrees without drinks were $60. We walked alway satisfied. It gets loud after six thirty so try to go... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. Lentil soup (excellent) and try-colore salads. I had the Day-Boat Scallops - excellent. My husband had a vegetarian pasta in a broth, which also was very good. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was very good.

At here with a group of 30ish. Had the private dining room which was distinct from the rest of the restaurant. Well appointed and set up. Easy to have conversation. Service was excellent. Food was exceptional. Menu of salad, primi, secondo and dessert. Portions were perfect. Nothing at all negative about the place, the evening or the dinner. I would... More

A group of us sat at a rounded booth at Frantoio and had one of the most pleasureable evenings I can remember! First off, we met a lovely man Ettore (from Peru) who served us. He set the tone for the entire evening. We had laughs, respectful conversation, and intelligent information regarding our meal choices and of course, the in-house... More

This lovely restaurant is located right next door to the Holiday Inn. Often you will not find such a fine eating establishment next door to such as the Holiday Inn. The spinach salad is delightful, and not too sweet as sometimes is the case with this type of salad. The wild salmon was perfectly prepared, not overcooked and served on... More

We ate here one night because we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express next door. The restaurant is beautiful and their home made hand-pressed on the premises olive oil is the best we ever tasted. Do take some home with you! The food was good but not exceptional, and as a result, was overpriced. However, I did have a glass... More

From the moment you walk in the restaurant you are greeted by a delightful host, I have never had to wait for a table, even when they are busy.Shortly after being seated the waiter is there, no wait for anything. Fresh bread and olive oil is brought to the table.The restaurant makes their own olive oil right there! One of... More
