“Best pizza taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We love this place and if you love Italian food, this is the joint! You won't be disappointed. It is a little pricey but worth it!

“Best in Lexington for casual dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Best in Lexington for a casual dinner. Prices are good and you can get a good bottle of wine for under $20. They always have great specials.

“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

Excellent Service and the food was scrumptious! We had the grouper and it rocked! The chef took the time to speak to the table next to us about dietary needs. Who does that in this town? No one! The drinks we're yummy especially the Fruity Martini's! Highly recommend this for the foodies out there! Very nice not to have to make the drive to Columbia for what we are getting at Tonella's!

“Yawn.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Above Average food and average service, much too expensive for what you're given. I suggest going next door to Arkos, Flight Deck or Yummie's. The Bistro was much better under their former ownership.
