Dear debisworld Thank you for the review and appreciation for what we do. These days in a world of burghers and bees it's a nice break to find a real veal chop. I am glad you had it, it's always very good. Buon Appetito Tony

The restaurant was recommended by some locals and I could see why. You walk in and you think you are in a cafe in Tuscany. The menu has a little of everything. We both had a pasta dish and the beet salad. All were delicious....More

This place had a lot of potential...but was just odd. The decor is a bit dated but nice enough atmosphere. Our waiter was strange and, being near Halloween, wouldn’t have been out of place as Lurch in a re-enactment Of the Adams Family Show. The...More

Dear limp D. thank you for insulting us this is not about us is it? It's about you missing your call in life. Good luck, I hear that back home they are looking for a re-write for Faulty Towers, I will recommend you. Tony

Great food, superior service, nice atmosphere. Noise level was really low for how many people were there and how close the tables are together. It was hard to choose as there were so many great dishes on the menu. Anytime I'm in Stowe, I'm coming...More

Beautifully cooked food. Home grown tomatoes. Very attentive service. Warm and welcoming on the outside and within. The only thing that marred a near perfect experience was a guest walking off with our umbrella. Completely unexpected in these parts, I gather.
