We had never been there before and stopped in for lunch. Food was ok, nothing extraordinary but the ownera were delightful. Chicken salad sandwich was on white bread and kind of skimpy, no lettuce or tomato. The homemade chips were good, soup was so so.

We enjoyed the chicken marsala, sea bass, schnitzel. All had good sauces. The ambience was not special and there were not many people there but good quality food.

We were there on a slow evening during a cold-snap during the holidays. Service was friendly and food was good. Nice bottle of red blend wine for reasonable $35.

Wonderful story of determination, hard work, and passion! Food is authentic, fresh, and made by hand by the owner's and their family.

Fine eating at reasonable prices. Husband and wife fled Bosnia during civil war there several years ago bringing artwork and their flair with food to Bardstown with ethnic and local dining favorites. Quiet, intimate and also capable of serving large groups.
