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

A spur-of-the-moment decision to go out to eat, on a Friday evening, and a vague memory of having eaten here (pleasantly) several years ago, prompted us to go back. (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...

This place came heavily recommended, with reason. The outside looks just like any other place stuck in a strip mall, but it is nicely appointed inside. The menu is excellent, as are the dishes and presentations. The host seemed a little impatient or begrudgingly courteous, both times I ate there, but that isn't typical of their wait staff at least.

The food was very good but the Head Waiter's attitude ruined it for us. He was abrupt and seemed to have no patience for questions regarding the menu and recommendations for an appetizer. It was our first time there not sure if we would go back because the way you are treated is just as important to me as is... More

Went here for mothers day and the head waiter had no respect or patience with my family. He was rude and nasty and although the food was fantastic and the other bus boys were very nice and respectful... we will never go back. He is apparently part owner and should not be treating his customers like that.

We had eaten at this restaurant over a decade ago, and didn't find it too memorable, thus the 10 year absence. So, on a Saturday night, we found ourselves looking for a local restaurant that didn't have a 2 hour wait for dinner! We called Della Fransesca and they took us right in! We had a nice table for 2...
