Great salads and pasta. Charming environment with outdoor seating. Fairly busy for lunch and a little pricey but a great meal overall.

This restaurant is one of the long time staples in downtown Middletown. Food is above average, very well prepared and the restaurant atmosphere very nice.

Used my birthday as the special occasion to come here. Really enjoyed dining outside, flowers were beautiful and provided good separation from the street traffic. Received excellent attention from the staff and even a birthday dessert. Bonus rating for having their own parking lot.

Started with a couple of apps, Calamari and a special of the day, and wine (one person had a martini), and ordered our dinners. Everyone said they were excellent and... More

Love this place, but it is expensive (but worth it) the soup is so good I would travel an hours drive to have it. Its so great that if you have it once you will remember it forever and if you think about it you will start drooling. I'm not making that up, being very honest. Best fish soup I... More
