Nice downtown Cumberland restaurant. It's located right in the pedestrian area of old downtown and is a comfortable place with indoor and outdoor dining.

Good menu, we had pasta and bruschetta. Both were excellent.

As in all of downtown Cumberland, parking is a little tight. On-street parking adjacent to the pedestrian area is limited either to one hour or 20 minutes. There is on-street parking a few blocks away that was adequate when we arrived (very early), but I can see it could get very tight at prime time. I think there are some parking garages scattered around downtown.

We were very impressed by this sidewalk restaurant located in the heart of downtown. The service was attentive and inviting; the offerings were broad and imaginative. The wine selections featured quality wines at a reasonable price for glass or bottle.

We found the Caprese salad imaginative with the addition of watermelon; Will try that at home from now on... the watermelon added a sweet flavor offsetting the tart balsamic dressing

The pasta Bolognese was wonderful; the meat and sauce competing for your attention, which was better???? Cant say

Let's face it; you probably aren't going to think of ole' Cumberland, Maryland as offering lots of fine dining options. However, this restaurant is actually pretty darn good. The ambience is interesting (sit outside if you can), the prices are decent, and the food was very good (try the chicken marsala). Service was also very good. Finding the restaurant is a bit tricky but it will be worth it.

Great Italian menu choices in a dark-wood paneled series of rooms. I ate at the bar and had very attentive service with welcomed recommendations. Just a few steps off of the pedestrian mall area.

The food here was very good. They offered a nice selection of Italian meals. I had the Pollo Abruzzo- “Breaded chicken breast over fresh spinach and mushrooms, sautéed in balsamic vinegar and topped with a gorgonzola cheese sauce with a side of garlic pasta” and loved it. My wife had the Spaghettini del Nonno and my one daughter had the Primavera which they both enjoyed. My other daughter had the spaghetti and meatballs (she wasn’t a fan of the meatballs). They offer half orders of most of the entrees which is a nice option if you aren’t too hungry or if you want to save room of a dessert. We were disappointed that the cappuccino machine was broken. Parking in downtown Cumberland is a hassle if you don't know the area.
