“Gone The Way Of The Dodo”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Just like Angry Olive, another splash in the pan for that building. Now Al Garve is in there. I have heard through the rumor mill that is essentially the same folks just reinventing themselves every few months. Mind you this is only rumor and I can in no way substantiate it,

“Good food good times.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile


Good food good times. The food brings you back to grandma's cooking. We were two couples I had chicken the others had fish. A little pricy maybe but for four salads, four dinners, fresh bread, four drinks coffee and the best deserts $100. A couple wasn't to bad. We enjoyed the meal and the fact that you are not rushed is so rare today. We will be back and I will have desert.

“Rocky Hill's best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is the first time I've been moved to write a review. We stopped in on a whim and are so glad we did, we found our new favorite restaurant. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive. The food was delightful. It reminded me of a European Italian menu. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an outstanding meal and pleasant experience.

“Exceptional place - very accommodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

I used this restaurant for a recent insurance agency meeting (staff meeting). We needed a location as our office in the state isn't ready yet. The restaurant isn't even open in the AM, but they came in for us and opened up the dining area to our group of 25. They provided a continental breakfast and made sure we didn't feel rushed when our meeting ran over and the restaurant was about to open. Very accommodating, all food was fresh and the staff was really great. They had one exceptionally nice lady going around offering fresh coffee to us at intervals through the meeting. Really great and if their standard lunch/dinner food is as good as their service then I would definitely recommend them for an outing!
