the chocolate desserts are the best and especially paired with a nice sorbet. They even have selections for dairy free diets, which I need,

I went here for the first time with a group of friends and had a great experience! We all ordered different desserts to share amongst each other. The waitress was incredibly friendly and the food was moist and delectable! The atmosphere was very neat due to this place being inside an old house!

The chocolate cake is intense but good (ate 1/3 of it and took the rest home). Service is fast and very friendly. Perfect for sweet tooth and late desserts (the are open late)

This is such a great place to go spend a few hours eating interesting food and desserts and sampling wine. I believe they also do beer pairings. It's a fun place to go with a group, you can chat and taste away an afternoon

This is a quaint little place that used to be a house. It is very quiet and has great dessert items to try. I love the Labomba (I believe it's called), which is sorbet with a white chocolate layer on it. Their food is great, just a little pricey.

My husband and I love this place, it's a must-stop whenever we're in Rochester. There really is nothing better than having a delicious dessert with some wine on the side! They have tasty truffles, too. The place itself is very quaint, it has very comfortable seating and there's lovely artwork on the walls. The staff has always been very nice... More

The chocolate we ordered was the same high quality chocolate we've purchased from Wegmans it's good chocolate but I was expecting something made on the premises. I think the lighting was too bright and the room too open (this is a house converted into a restaurant). I remember a wine and cheese place years ago on Long Island, the lighting... More

Varied options for chocolate/sweets and wine pairings. Pretty extensive selection of truffles and the wine list was decent for a smaller venue. Definitely a good place to go for something a little sweet, but without breaking the bank.
