The food, drinks and service are all incredible. Though it is pricey it is definitely worth a special visit. I love the variety of selection in all categories & it was the BEST tiramisu I've ever eaten.

Visited for lunch with the girls. Everything homemade and fresh. Had the pasta and it was out of this world. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We had great service and the food was original and mouth watering.

Not up to previous visits. 4 of the 6 dinners were below par. One had to be returned - fatty lamb. Average service. Taking this place off our list for future visits.

Such a great, interesting place for a fantastic meal. The ambiance is great as the place resides in the morgue of the old state insane asylum. The server was so knowledgeable about the menu that I felt comfortable ordering the wild boar!!!! It was fantastic as was the starter and dessert. A must for the foodie.

4 superior appetizers for lunch. Scallops and octopus perfectly cooked. Beautiful presentation for all especially the carpaccio. Friendly professional staff. Our server was exceptional with good menu knowledge and amazing attention to detail. The Owner was there and offered knowledgeable wine advice to other diners. Quaint quiet atmosphere. Love this place.

I just loved the atmosphere in this quiet, gracious restaurant. The original stone is the showpiece and tables are spaced so you can have private conversations. I requested a leisurely luncheon experience from our waitress as we had been walking around the grounds in the sun for over an hour and wanted to cool off and relax. Her timing was... More

On the second day of a special weekend we had this scheduled based on word of mouth and quite frankly we did not check out reviews as we usually do. One thing I told my girlfriend was that "Everything" that we had was fantastic. from the Artichoke Bottoms appetizer to the Bibb & Arugula and Heirloom Tomato salads. Everything tasted... More

I felt misled by high reviews so taking the time to write one. The food was not very good, not tasty and unsophisticated. I've had better Italian food at chain stores.
