Really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. Very quaint little getaway. This was our first time but will go again. Book a table if you can because it is a busy place. Worth the wait if you can't book.

We brought our own wine to Brio, no worries. I had called ahead. I think the corkage fee was $20 but it may have been $15.
