“Disappointing Service”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We had high hopes for this restaurant. The outdoor area is attractive, with a Bocce Ball court and glass walled kitchen area. There were LOTS of employees running around, but not really providing service. It was odd. We were seated right away, then offered a drink. Once we ordered our drink, we never saw that waiter again. Someone else came to take our food order, still no drinks. Then, dinner came, still no drinks. We saw them sitting on the bar and eventually got someone else to bring them over. The dinner pizza was not memorable and the waiter could not offer any specials or suggestions. Maybe the staff is still learning; but the manager needs to pay attention. We won't return for a long time; at least until we hear a good review.

“best place in town”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

This is a great place. A lot of fun to be there, playing Bocci, sitting by the fire, or having a nice dinner. The pizza's are great, esp union pizza, also forest floor and butcher's (white pizza less exciting) but the crust is fantastic on them all. The steak is wonderful. The fisherman's stew is great. Porchetta too. Scallops is a small dish but delicious. Agnolletti also small but fantastic. The Back Abbey used to be clearly the best restaurant in town, and now it has some competition ... unless you all want fries and a burger, this is now the best. There was some kind white fish that we ordered once that was overdone. And at the very beginning they were sometimes slow to get things to come out on time and hot. But that seems behind them. They seem to be experimenting with the menu, so looking forward to new dishes to come.

Truly delicious food. Not average flavors but special thoughtful cooking that is delicious. Nice seating options inside and outside with fire pits.
