I am sure I had been to this restaurant years ago, and I am not sure why it fell off of the radar, but it will now be at the TOP of the list. My husband, myself and our friends decided to have dinner here a couple of nights ago. What a treat! The restaurant is located in a small... More

The atmosphere is wonderful, the food is fantastic and the staff is friendly. I love to come here for dinner. I can't really decide which dish is my favorite. I love the Salmon which I order a lot, but I also love the Novello pasta. The calamari is a great appetizer. We love calamari and this is one of our... More

We have been to bistro 13 several times. The food is always good. This time we almost all had chosen the specials. Good choices, and the food was good, but we thought not up to par with other visits. We got cappuccino, as we had ordered, but not sure even if this was cappuccino. Perhaps we should have given 3... More

Our company had a conference in town and since so many of us were staying at the Courtyard by Marriott next door, we rented the entire restaurant and bar for about 100 people. The owner is so great to work with and puts on a great spread. Our customers had such a great time with great Italian food and drinks.... More

We were greeted very warmly by the "Front of the House" by what appeared to be the owner. We were immediately offered a beverage upon seating and fresh, warm baked bread. All items ordered were cooked to perfection. Definitely give this place a try. The food was very good as was the service!

Giovanni owns the joint. He makes the rounds with Italian charm and a sense of occasion is established. History fills the air as he tells stories from his life. The atmosphere alone makes this worth a visit. The staff are nice, attentive and helpful. Then your food arrives. Oh my. Simply put, the best risotto I've had outside of Italy!... More

We dine at Bistro 13 regularly. The pasta and fish are absolutely outstanding. Atmosphere is elegant yet comfortable and amenable to good conversation when dining with a loved one or with friends. Service is attentive and friendly.

I come here every time I come home to visit my family and it is always wonderful! The service is excellent and the owner is so welcoming. My favorite dish is the butternut squash ravioli. Excellent wine options and dessert as well.
