Excellent food. Consider the Specials Menu first. Excellent pasta, seafood or meat; the specials will have something tasty. The specials menu will also include some great wine by the glass; had an outstanding Malbec last night in a very full $8 glass which lasted through my entire meal. I can walk to this restaurant from my home so it is... More

When we lived in Avon we frequented the little orange often, its been a few years and a few miles but we found ourselves there on Black Friday. Better than we remembered it, food was great, short ribs fork tender. Loved our waitress. Don't miss this place, if you've been before try it again.

We had the bruschetta and the calimari as appetizers and they were also delicious . Very tasteful and very quiet at lunch. Great place for a... More

We enjoyed our wine and our meal very much. It isn't fine dining but it is certainly heaps better than the pizza place over the road. :)

They have some great appetizers to chose from. My favorite is the prosciutto wrapped mozzarella. Several main dishes are outstanding and a nice selection of pastas. Menu is kid friendly. Excellent desserts and nice selection of wines. A regular place for me.
