I'd skip Sovana and make reservations at Catherine's (in Unionville) - just a couple of miles down the road. Sovana was a disappointing experience the last two times we visited.

Sovana Bistro has been a staple in the Unionville community since opening twenty years ago and has evolved into a highly regarded dining destination. The kitchen and bar create simple hand-made items, inspired by ingredients sourced locally at the peak of their season. We cater to dietary restrictions offering house-made gluten free and vegetarian options. The service reflects a gracious approach to hospitality and genuine concern for each and every guests' experience. We take that same thoughtful care in event planning, offering catering and in-house private functions.
