“This is how restaurants chase customers away......”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

My wife and I went here a while ago and had a great time. Sat at the bar, the place was hustling, service was very good, had the special of Lobster Risotto and , I'm telling you, it was terrific. We were delighted to have found this place. Came back a couple of months later, sat at the bar, food was poor, tasted frozen and warmed, service was just OK, coffee was cold.... just seemed to be incompetently run. Too bad, this place had really showed some promise. Maybe I'll try it again sometime. I'll let you know.

“Do not go here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Absolutely HORRIBLE service...and to top it off the owner couldn't have cared less. Waited over an hour for 3 pasta dishes. The owner completely ignored our table. We sat in the bar and the server was the bartender. She tried to "help" us by pleading with the kitchen...or so she said. The owner knew that we waited forever, never approached the table, never offered a drink or dessert in exchange for our ridiculous wait...the proceeded to EAT HER DINNER AT THE BAR... 5 feet away from us. I own restaurants myself and have never seen this sort of inexcusable behavior. Don't waste your money! Not worth it.

“excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

This is an excellent little place tucked away in downtown Stevensville. The atmosphere is cozy, there is a warm intimate wine bar , huge selection of wines and the Italian food is prepared extremely well. A great place to go for a specail ocassion, a bit pricey for an everyday dinner.

“Great spot and great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We live in Stevensville and this is one of our favorite restaurants. We come often and sit in the bar area and have salads and the yummy flatbread pizzas. The 1/2 price wine nights make it a great bargain too. The entrees are always good too and they are very willing to make minor changes to a dish to accommodate as we are vegetarians. The outdoor seating is great too!
