Great restaurant that serves locally sourced food. There are no strange additives or unhealthy ingredients. The food is great. The gelato is wonderful and the jams and jellies next door are the very best. Wonderful place to eat.

This restaurant is in a lovely setting and is clean and comfortable, but the food is "unusual" and our waiter said we couldn't order it with any exceptions. I ordered a turkey sandwich and did not want the salad dressing, fruit preserves and salty ham...More
