Terrific dinner. Will definitely be back. Generous portions and large selections of wine. Live music, outside patio for dining in good weather. This is really a nice place to go. Have driven by many times. Glad we stopped this time.

Elegant salads, hand-crafted pizzas, sumptuous pastas and much more in a rehabbed OLD farmhouse in Lima, PA. Peter McAndrews is a gifted chef indeed.

One of the most enjoyable Italian meals that I have ever had. The staff are so courteous and attentive. We enjoyed wonderful musical entertainment. We were made to feel like family. The appetizers, meal, desserts just blew us away. Wine list was super!

The best lasagna I've had in a restaurant. This cozy restaurant never fails to impress, I've brought business associates to lunch, family to dinner and have always had impeccable service and great food.

We came for a very early dinner so it was empty - which was perfect - and by the time we left, it was almost full. The beet salad was excellent - with goat cheese and cherries. The sausage pizza was delicious and the gnocchi was very rich and sinful. We had great wines and the service was very good.... More

This location used to be in the country but is now is part of suburban expansion southwest of Philly. For many years it was a dive bar but has been totally rebuilt as a country Italian restaurant. Their wings, finished in an apricot glaze, are unique and delicious. Brick oven pizza is featured and worth driving out for. Half a... More

Highly recommend this little gem. Great food, beer, wine served in a lovely rustic environment. Great for couples, friends looking for something eclectic and people looking for something other than the chain restaurants.

this restaurant is something very unique to our little town. The food is very precisely cooked and there isn't anything like it that I can think of.

Took a family of 9 here aged 8-50. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Great Italian based comfort food with a few twists. The Italian French fries smothered in balsamic vinegar, eggplant and peppers are unique and memorable. The gnocchi are authentic. The pizzas are a large portion and brick oven goodness. Wine list is medium sized with bottles of red available... More
