“Great Food in a quiet neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Excellent food, personally tended to by Chef Greg Neville.
The menu doesn't have a ton of choices, but everything I've had is excellent. The smoked salmon appetizer is incredible!
The space is a bit noisy.

“Fabulous Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

The food is amazing. The wait staff tip top and the overall dining experience is a memorable one. The restaurant is well appointed and relaxing. Not great for little kids which is why I return time and time again.

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The food here is always excellent - Greg the owner tries to come around when he is there, and touch base with the diners. The only thing is the noise level - since it was an ice cream parlor at one time - wish this was better. Going tomorrow night for our anniversary.

“Wedding luncheon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

We had the place to ourselves so noise was not a problem. We had two choices for each course and it was fun and great tasting food. I had salmon over basil mashed potatoes, spinach salad with carmelized walnuts, feta cheese, and dried cherries. The creme brule was the best. It seemed as if they wanted to get away from normal Italian food so that was nice.

“Bland food with a fancy title!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I had my first opportunity to dine at this restaurant 2 nights ago. The menu featured a fettucini dish with sausage, mushrooms, spinach, cream sauce, etc... and it was watery, without sausage and as bland as I have ever had. I would have written the restaurant but their website provide no place for customer to write comments. What a surprise! The other guest had a small portion or sea bass that was unremarkable and the other guest had dry risotto, a house specialty. Guess I'll pass if someone asks me t go there. There are better places. Maybe this award winning chef has lost his touch or isn't there to oversee the poor food?
