We have come here a number of times, the service is exceptional - - they do not rush you nor do they remove your plates until all folks in your group are finished, which very few restaurants are sensitive to - they are very attentive (filling water, cleaning table after each course). The food always extremely good, served properly, and... More

We stopped at the Ethan Allen Hotel on our way up from Virginia. Did not like the menu at the hotel and just happened to find this restaurant down the road. What a fabulous find! One of the best meals we have ever eaten and the service was superb. I had the fish special with a mango salsa and my... More

(Also, I'd checked out their menu on the web, and it looked more imaginative than the standard Italian fare.) We were immediately impressed with the elegant (inside) dining room – subdued... More

We went there for my wife's birthday on the recommendation of a friend. All the food was good, not exceptional. The place is small, and in a strip mall, and I felt a little closed in and a little crowded at our table for three, even though it wasn't busy. It was a weeknight and the service was good. My...
