The 1,000 Island resort area has many fine restaurants. Wise Guy's is probably one of the smallest but without a doubt one of the best. Do yourself a big favor and visit Wise Guy's and be sure to start your dinner with garlic knots.

Homemade authentic Italian food. Delicious! Family owned and family run, they catered to our every need. The meatballs and sauce are a must try!

We have heard excellent things about this restaurant for years and have never tried it. Our loss. Looks small on the outside, but is much bigger and nicer inside. We went on a Wednesday. One special was all you can eat pizza. We gave it a try and it was excellent. A whole pie was brought to our table and... More

We are so sorry you were disappointed with your dinner with us, and we were out of the two things that you ordered! I make a pan lasagna almost daily and it's always fresh so at times we do run out. Not sure what happened with you waitress but it sounds like she was not doing her part and making... More

Best Italian food in the area. Reasonable price, Excellent Service and well worth the stop. Relatively new to the area, this restaurant has made all the right moves. VERY popular. Strongly suggest reservations, especially "in-season." A gem in the village of Chaumont.

Start off with garlic knots. They are excellent if you like garlic, a lot of garlic. Why not, it's good for you. Soups are very good, entrees are consistently good, pizza is the best in the area. There is a steady stream of pizza to go all night! Ok, on to dessert, get the maple walnut log!!! Even if you... More

I passed by this place several times enroute to the Cape. Stopping was never a consideration until a friend said to give it a try. I was very surprised. This is an Italian restaurant with food to temp the tastebuds. I now stop by once a month to patronize this non franchise establishment.
