We have been here quite a few times but not recently. The food is very good but would like to see some different /new things on the menu. We would probably go more often.

Things were lively, both inside and out, when we arrived. The four of us sat on the patio and were greeted pretty quickly. The menu strives to be local with food and drinks and there was other local promotion going on, as well. One feature was lobster cakes that could be available as a starter or main course. I ordered... More

Food was excellent...so good we went back again the second night. The waitress was so nice and got my husband something to eat fast the first night as he's Diabetic and was having a bit of a problem. Everything was so nice and so good. Loved it. Highly recommend this place.

We went for lunch and we were all very happy with our meals. The restaurant was clean with professional attentive staff. The atmosphere was sophisticated without being fussy or pretentious. A welcome change from the standard fare.

Got the early for a light meal. No reservations and were seated in a minute. Staff was trained in detail about how to treat guests-they were great. We shared mussels, Risotto with pesto and salmon, salad, ginger cake with rum sauce-everything was wonderful to taste. Will return when in the area

I am celiac and I was looking for a place in Truro that served gluten free food. Bistro 22 was absolutely excellent.

The bread was superb, really... More
