“Average food and service”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We had read so many great reviews and were disappointed with our dinner last night. We felt the food was overpriced for the quality. The service was fair. The waitress was pleasant but seemed over extended. Actually that seems like the story regarding many of theses restaurants. We were lucky to have a wonderful evening dining Al Fresco.

sisi 123...Thanks for the review.. great observation myself & most of the restaurants in town are understaffed in a seasonal town we loose our college kids so that means yes our servers who stay on are over extended & it will continue for a few more weeks so all of you reading this have patience we all are work harder this time of year tiring to make your dining experience pleasurable..Cate

“disappointing”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

After a wonderful experience last year we returned but were disappointed. I ordered the tuna special requesting it rare. It came over cooked. The sauce and vegetables were adequate. My wife found her dish dull. Service was rushed but ok.

The spicy mussels were good.

“Absolutely Delicious!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We loved everything! One of the best pasta sauces I have ever tasted. Unlike any other restaurant I've been to, I could actually tell that I was eating eggplant parm, instead of just breading around a thin slice of mystery. Extremely reasonably priced - if we lived in the area, we would go here every week!

“Outstanding surprise....”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

While driving into Bolton's Landing for the first time we spotted an outdoor dinning area that looked interesting. After being seated I figured this was a tourist kind of place but ordered my meal for lunch. Wow....what a surprise. Maybe one of the best Italian sandwiches I've ever had anywhere. Also a great cup of soup..!!! Told several friends to be sure to go there...!!!
