Very good Italian food. Not a huge menu but certainly varied. Very nice home made pasta in different varieties. In the summer they have an outdoor area thats terrific. You would not believe there is a public parking lot right behind the fence. The ambience reeks Italy. This restaurant has been around for a long time but I had not... More

We ate outside on their lovely patio, enjoying the bounteous grape arbor and soothing fountain. We split everything from the appetizer through dessert. The mussel appetizer was very good, having bee modified a bit to have a fra diavolo sauce. The warm tomato salad was ok but not special. However the lobster fettuccine and fresh peach crostata were outstanding. It's... More

Great Italian food! The warm tomato salad is their signature appetizer and it is excellent! The patio is under a grape arbor and a great spot on hot summer nights. All the entrees are great - finish your meal with cool raspberry sorbet!

This is a tried and true favorite. The meals are consistently good and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. This is one of the first quality restaurants in the 'butbs and it remains a favorite.

Most delicious appetizers I've ever eaten and I've been to L'Espalier in Boston. This place takes the cake! Fabulous wine pairings with dinner and a gorgeous outdoor patio beside a fountain in back! Very romantic!

Rubia, So glad you liked everything. FYI: Today I picked up some amazing sun-ripened Heirloom Tomatoes grown in Newfane, Vermont to serve with Maple Brook Burrata. And if you enjoyed our wine pairings, keep in mind that next Thursday we're holding a wine tasting outdoors in the garden featuring a number of rarely-seen Italian grape varieties. The beat goes on!

Yeah, the entrees are mouth-watering. Yeah, the desserts are delectable. Service is solid. Price maybe a tad too high for more consistent patronage. But the Warm Tomato Salad? I can't get enough of it! A large, shareable portion of gently, swiftly sautéed lightly seasoned tomato cubes, accompanied by thin, bias-cut crispy crostini and local goat cheese. $14 worth of heaven.... More

Thanks so much for the complimentary words. You hit it on the head; "Warm Tom" (as we call it in the kitchen) continues to be our most popular dish. A special Shout-Out to Bob and Debbie Stetson of Westfield Farm in Hubbardston Mass. for making the incredibly fresh goat cheese that crowns the top of the plate. It wouldn't be... More

Thank you so much. It's funny, but there are many PM customers who have no idea about our lunch menu. In particular the incredible toasted panini made with Ciabatta bread. They don't know what they're missing. More

Had the pleasure of dining at this fine establishment last night with wife and another couple. Ambiance was subdued and classy, but had to sit inside because of bad weather. The warm tomatato appetizer we had was probably the best I've ever had. Generous pieces of delicious tomatoes that were perfectly seasoned. Four entrees were chicken parm, seafood dish, pork...

Enjoyed dinner with friends on a friday night on the patio under the grape arbor. We shared the warm tomato salad and fresh figs as appetizers. Delicious! I had a vegetarian lasagna that was very generously sized, nice pizzas, homemade pastas offered too. We live not far so its nice to enjoy a lovely meal without going into the city.... More

So glad that you enjoyed everything. Fresh Figs are something of a Stellina specialty. We hand-pick them very week just to make sure that we get the best, and soon will have many gallons put away for the winter, preserved in balsamic vinegar (they go so well with grilled pork!) More
