It had been several years since I ate at Il Barilotto. I shouldn't allow so much time to pass next time! Each year, my partner and I drive from Washington, DC, to Poughkeepsie for a college graduation event. After the event, we have dinner at a nice restaurant. We ate here several years and thought we'd try it again. We weren't disappointed. We were early so things weren't quite up to speed, but that allowed us to take our time and enjoy our cocktails. My fish (a white fish special for that evening) was prepared perfectly. My partner said his pasta was done well, too. Since we are in the area only once a year, we may have to stay an extra day if we want to try another restaurant and enjoy another meal here, too!
