Enjoyed our Italian dinners, authentic, sizeable portions and a good value. Started with fresh garlic bred. House wines reasonable. Will return

Walked over from our hotel for diner. Pizza sounded good, and it was. Service was friendly and efficient. Be forewarned: the garlic knots are huge and delicious.

I walked across the street to Juniors from my hotel after a nine hour drive...I was hungry but didn't feel like getting back in the car. I was greeted by a chatty and friendly waitress who seated me in the bar area at my request. Since she was busy in the dining room, Amy, who was tending bar, took over... More

Nice clean dining room with the windows shaded from afternoon sun. The room capacity seems to be around 75 diners. Not too loud. I had Shrimp Mediterranean and my wife had chicken Marsala, our portions were generous. Diners around us received servings that seemed large as well. The entrees were accompanied by foccacia bread (enough to fill up on) and... More

The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and a good place for a family meal. They start you off with some focaccia style pizza (white pizza topped with roasted onion and herbs) and parmesan-coated thin breadsticks. They were delicious. Overall, service was friendly and accommodating (they made a sauce that wasn't listed on their pasta menu) and the portions were generous.... More

Our first return visit in several years. Very nice meal with family. I had the veal medallions in a wonderful sauce, and balsamic vinaigrette salad. Chocolate mousse dessert was tasty and light. Good wine choices. My wife liked her Chicken Francese (not quite the right name) and cheesecake dessert. Service was sometimes quick and attentive, sometimes slow, as though the... More

I don't understand why our friends insist on this place. Generally dirty and worn, Unimpressive food, self-service table setting and clearing. Restaurant seating side is better. Interesting fact: Brand new building, all new lichen and furnishings, failed the state health inspection six months after opening.

We were in Burlington to do some Christmas returns and a friend had told us how wonderful a place this was. We obviously picked a bad night to visit. The food was good but our waitress had apparently gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. "Dee" was rude to my seven year old son rushing him and made... More
