This is one of our favorite places for lunch. The paninis are the best ever. Having tried a panini in other places, none can come close to theirs. Yes, the service is a little slow, but each is made to order & served warm. The biggest decision to make is which one you want to have because they are all... More

A busy place on the bay with a nice menu and some different Flavors that make it worthwhile visit. There was a wait and we had reservations but we were late. A byob and meals priced moderately.

Food does take a while but enjoy your drink and your company! The food is made up fresh, hasn't been sitting there! I had the bacon avocado cucumber sandwich, it was superb. The flavor so blended so well! Small intimate atmosphere with great water views, accessible by boat.

Had lunch here with my two daughters. You can't beat the view. Food was above average. I had a BLT on multiple-grain bread which was delicious as was the spicy crab soup. It took forever for us to get our meals. Seemed there were only two servers working and it seemed like one person must have been in the kitchen.... More

Very good food but one downer for me was the noise. It seemed like the ceiling was going to fall, it seemed like there were kids running around. Get rugs for the apartment upstairs!!

We understand that it is summer so we went to dinner there on a Wednesday night. The food was and the service were good. My husband had the pork chop, which was large and juicy.

Nice views, with warm and friendly waiting staff combined with a good Italian menu with fresh ingredients make this the best fine dining experience in the area. I have no complaints and will return. Especially good is the stem artichokes!

She explained it really wasn't considered outdoors. The room has windows that I would have loved to have opened it was such a gorgeous day... More
