Had a group of 10 and wee all enjoyed the food and service. Chris did a great job of keeping our group served. The appetizers Tuesday - Thursday 4 -6 are half price. We ordered several all so good. Same with our meals. I enjoyed the chicken and eggplant parm, nice big meal that I had to take most home.

Although it is Italian some of the other dishes are very good!! They have the best baked haddock on the seacoast. Italian trio of veal, sausage, meatballs is a go for it. It can get crowded. We go at least 3 times a month and always enjoy the meals.

Had the veal parm - 2 nice and hot huge pieces that were very thin and breaded. Tasty sauce, pasta good. Salad excellent. Bread warm and good. Great service. Good specials. Husband had seafood dish that he said was excellent. Enough for dinner next night. They do have pizza and sandwiches at dinner as well.

Had dinner here for our anniversary in October. Chose this because its Jillian's, a well known area chef who had established and then sold many restaurants in seacoast nh. It wasn't as upscale as I expected, but was nicely appointed. Waitress was attentive. The dinners were very good and ample. However I was expecting over-the-top due to the name. The... More

I've eaten here solo and with family several times. Usually sit at the bar or in the lounge. The food is very good, the portions are plentiful, the atmosphere is nice, and the prices are reasonable. Service can be slow at times. As noted in the title of this review, a lot of the customers are locals and act like... More

Pleasant staff and waitress. Food was good. Salad with entree was very fresh and better than expectation and they had good table dressing. The fettuccine carbonara was quite good just too much cream sauce. My wife had fried ravioli which was lightly fried with spinach and not too much red sauce. Food was good just not amazing, but it's a... More

By far the best Italian homemade food within 100 miles. Being in a resort area this restaurant insist on maintaining its perfection served with every meal. Not to mention a luncheon menu with food portions enough for two adults and a dogie bag to go. This time of the year they are still crowded with locals and we as locals... More
