“Pretty good eats, plenty of atmosphere.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Ate here with the family for a birthday celebration. The service and menu were top notch. I will agree that the bread should be served with some Olive Oil and perhaps the sauce a little spicier. Other than that we enjoyed the meals and the servings were large enough to have the next day.

“Perfect dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were in the area for one night only and decided to eat dinner here based on the other reviews. Nice atmosphere, friendly & attentive staff, delicious eggplant parm, so I'd have to agree with just about all of the other reviewers: great place to eat. It is also VERY close to the exit which makes it even better.

“Fantastic all the way around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I will start with negative . It was a slow night and service was very slow. I dont remember my servers name but the hostess was Kyrsten and she checked in while I was waiting for my server. The server was pleasant and had a pretty good understanding of the menu and food. The soup was excellent. The atmosphere was fantastic. The food was excellent. The coffee and chocolate cake was good too. This may be my new favorite place in Martinsburg.. I will definitely eat here again. The staff was great. There was a waiter who was very social. Although this was my first trip there I felt quite at home and like I belonged.

“A Little Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Bread was tasty but could have been served with oil, pepper and garlic. Rating=A
Salad was wilted and appeared to be prepared early in the day. Lettuce showed brown around the edges. Should have had more kinds than just iceberg. Dressings were on the salad and overwhelming. Should be on the side. Rating=C
Tortellini Alfredo was good. Rating=A
Veal Picatta was OK. Veal was overcooked. Lots of mushrooms and capers. Sauce was too abundant. Rating=B
Service was very good. Very attentive. Rating=A
Ambience was OK. Needs updating. Could use cloth for tables not vinyl. Chairs were not comfortable. Rating=C
Disappointed overall for being top rated restaurant in Martinsburg.
If I lived here, would probably return, but would know what I was getting.
If you're from out-of-town, don't bother.
