“Great food & service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

This restaurant had a unique and creative menu, and to call it Italian would be selling it short. It was certainly not the mainstream "American Italian" type restaurant. Rather, the salads consisted of baby greens that were served with house made dressings. The main dishes included X- V olive oil, garlic, fresh local vegetables and meats. It was tough to choose just one meal, as there were so many great choices. If you have a discriminating palate and are looking for food more like you would find in Italy, I recommend this place. Dessert was also out of this world!

“Best dinner in Woodstock”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I love eating at this place, and each weekend spent in Woodstock, my husband and I try to manage it. The menu, slanted toward Italian dishes, always represents fresh Hudson Valley produce. Nice Italian wines and other interesting cocktails. The restaurant is situated in an old white house (set back slightly from the intersection of Routes 375 and 212) and is accompanied by a rennovated red barn next door which is available to serve large groups (family reunions, rehearsal dinners, etc.). The front porch is open during the warm months, where gas heaters are also available for slightly chilly evenings. The indoor decor is done in soft greys and low light, many small candles in shining glass votives ... a fireplace in the smaller of the two dining rooms is often lit and a cozy spot to dine in the late fall and winter, and the bar a convivial place to have a drink or to dine. As far as I'm concerned, definitely the best food served in town.

“Noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Food is good but there is no effort to reduce the noise! Interesting menu and nice waitstaff, but too loud.

“Very Good, but Not Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I would say the food was good, but I was not blown away. I had the crab appetizer and the rib-eye, it was solid, but I've def had better, especially for the price. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice, but I left a little upset as I had high expectations.

Great food and service. Got the special spagetti with meatballs, salad, glass of wine, I changed to coke, and desert for 25.
