on our way to Mystic, late on a Friday night, we came upon an unassuming little Italian place. Great fresh food, homemade with love. Our server Gerta couldn't have been nicer.

Stopped in for a lunch with my spouse - she ordered a beer - gnocchi and broccoli rabe - she loved it all! I had a pizza - the meatball- it was really good as well. A little pricey but worth it!More

We moved to old Lyme last January. It took us awhile but this is for sure my go to. The salmon is cooked to perfection and the salads are light. Fabulous drinks and desserts. On top the wait staff couldn’t be more attentive and pleasant.
