This is the other T or C restaurant that seems like it's straight out of NYC. Not kidding. Fashionable servers, chefs and decor. The food is dynomite and the ambiance is impeccable. We had a pizza pie there the other night while drinking wine and beer on the back patio. The barren alley's and pink buildings surrounding add to a... More

There are only 4 or so restaurants in TorC u can walk to from downtown that serve beer wine, this one of them. The food, decor, service and prices were excellent. The wine prices seemed a little high. The desserts are a must try. The booths are the best seats for a romantic dinner. Highly recommend this place.

Second visit... just as good, if not better this time! Authentic pasta dishes, just the right amount of herbs, garlic and sauce.

Superb Italian food with a major chef in this tiny little town! Just around the corner from the Riverbend motel spa.

I ate there two nights ago and had the Wedge Salad which is just an ordinary wedge of Iceberg Lettuce but it is smothered in a Blue Cheese dressing that is both plentiful and... More

Server seated us but wouldn't let us have a booth as we requested. Said it was for parties of four or more only, even though it was after eight and only two other patrons there. We shared a Shrimp Arrabiati which was well seasoned but the prawns were a over cooked and tough. Also split the salmon which came with... More

Stopped for dinner while staying at Riverbend. Great regular and gluten-free meals on the menu. Pizza is amazing!

For a small, dusty little town, this was a pleasant surprise to find such great food and good service. Will do it again.
