Wish we were traveling with a group because I wanted to try most of the items on the menu. For breakfast, hubby had the House-Corned Beef Hash which was very good. The meat was flavorful, not fatty, huge chunks of meat (hint of cinnamon) with nicely cooked red bliss potatoes served in a shallow earthen ware dish. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the fact the earthen ware is placed in an oven with eggs on top of the meat and potatoes and it comes out really hot. So, the eggs that were cooked to medium end up completely cooked by the time you finish your breakfast. My breakfast was equally good, The Village Combo. Poached eggs on french bread toast served with a lovely tomato jam that perfectly offset the fresh heirloom tomatoes, undressed baby arugula salad and sliced avocado. The only thing a bit disappointing was that the eggs were not poached in a bath of water they were poached in an egg-poaching pan and were visually unappealing. Will definitely go back. Line out the door on the weekends.

What a wonderful, casual and relaxing restaurant this is. You just have to close your eyes for a moment and then reopen your eyes............you are in Paris! The cuisine is delicious and varied. You can choose from 6 great pizzas such as their Local Champignon which has portabella, cremini and oyster mush puree, truffle pecorino, thyme....or the Wild Prawn &Spicy Coppa (which we had) and was it delicious.....prawns, garlic, arugula, basil and pecorino to Prime Steaks, Charcuterie tastings, fish of the day, chicken, fromage and an extensive wine list. They serve breakfast lunch and dinner and have tables for up to 8 people. An additional tip, this restaurant has a sister French restaurant called Casanova which is more intimate and very suitable for couples and romantic dinners. For Casanove I would recommend reservations.

The menu is small, but you can't make a mistake. Everything is delicious. Salads, pizza, entree, wonderful desserts.

Restaurant is interesting, serving in 2 rooms. Food is really good, and
their home made bread first-rate. Great place for breakfast, fun menu
has to be seen to be appreciated.

Enjoyed lunch there during this visit. My husband and I split the Farmer's Market Veggie Panini and it was fresh, hot, delicious, and certainly a large portion. A small green salad was served with the lunch which was a nice touch. Service was good. Paired the lunch with a nice refreshing Campania wine. Nice breads, coffees, and ambience.
