I have lived in Newburgh for 11 years & was surprised to find I had never even heard of the #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor. My husband & I were treated to one of the finest meals we have ever had. No lie! It's like paradise in the middle of Downtown Newburgh. First, the restaurant is beautifully decorated & very, very clean. The service is extremely attentive, friendly & sincere. It is a family run restaurant & you can tell there is great love put into every dish. We started with fried calamari, it was perfect. Each special sounded so wonderful, we wanted to try them all! I had the pan seared tuna special served over avocado couscous with a lovely salad of avocado, red onion & tomato with balsamic vinaigrette. I had to try the fresh linguine with shaved black truffles & finished with white truffle oil. Fresh Parmesan was suggested & accepted as well as fresh ground pepper. It was a nice touch that they offer fresh ground pepper for the meal & not only for your salad. They were very accommodating and served me a half portion of the linguine, which I'll admit was way too much for me to order, but I couldn't resist. I'm glad I did as it was too good for words. The tuna was perfectly rare (just how I wanted it) topped with a lovely tomato, black olive & garlic sauce. It paired perfectly with the avocado couscous (pearl) and the two melted in my mouth. My husband ate filet mignon which was cooked perfectly rare (at his request) & served over a bed of organic baby greens, topped with shaved black truffles & shaved Parmesan. I had a bite & it too was spectacular! I had a vodka tonic & was delighted that they asked which vodka I preferred. Another nice touch. We had just enough room for espresso which was also very good. I wish there was room for dessert, but that will have to wait for our next visit. All in all this was one of the best meals & service we have ever had in our lives. Don't let the location fool you, it is culinary perfection. There is love & beauty in every plate. My only regret was not bringing my camera to capture the stunning presentation of the dishes. Be sure to treat yourself to an excellent meal here. They also have live music once a month which we will be sure to check out.
