While on the Cape visiting my mother across the street, I ate here 4 times and each time it was delicious. Nice pleasant atmosphere, very fresh and well prepared food. I look forward to my return visit.

This restaurant had several vegetarian entrees, which is why we chose it. The salad was below average. When we asked questions, our server rolled her eyes and was repeatedly impolite. This made our lunch, which was a special event, far less enjoyable. The staff needs better training.

We both had a great meal last last night. We shared a calamari which is kind of our gold standard appetizer test. Done perfectly, had peppers and sausage and a nice spicy aeoli sauce. Both meals were the day's specials, one beef tenderloin with bacon, the other sweet potato encrusted cod, both generous portions. Sides were jasmine rice and a... More

Our party of four chose to have lunch here because of its proximity to the bike trail. All of our selections very good or very good. Server was fine, hostess a little snobby. A sandwich, beverage, tax and tip will exceed $20, which seemed a bit much for the product.

What a wonderful dinner!! Our evening started with a warm welcome from the hostess and proprietor Ms. Kate. The menu has a variety of new additions. We started with a luscious margarita and a vodka martini. The bartender Brian is the best! We tried the new artichoke app which was fabulous! I had the veil special and my husband had... More

This lovely little gem is like dining in your own home. The staff are very welcoming and work together to make the experience even more seamless. The kitchen sends out attractive dishes that even taste good! What a concept. Make this one a stop and you'll keep going back.

This is a charming restaurant with very high quality food and great service. My wife and I shared the mushroom/spinach ravioli as an appetizer. Delicious! Good mushroom flavor and the sun-dried tomato sauce was superb. I had the Veal Milanese special. It was a large portion and cooked to perfection.Tender veal and flavorful breading. Dessert was also amazing. I had... More
