We've been hooked on Messina's for years. Our favorites are seafood fra diavolo, scallops, robust chicken and veal dishes with flavorful sauces, great pizza (especially spinach),and just-right pasta. Servings are fresh, generous, and fairly priced. We call on Chef Ed for catering rescues when we know we'll have a crowd at home. (Better to ski than cook!) We order platters of our favorites and, with a day's notice, Ed respects our request: lasagnas with extra mushrooms or eggplant, less cheese, spicier or milder seasonings. Service is friendly if a tad slow and forgetful occasionally. When we eat here, we feel at home; it's much better than toughing it out at the over-crowded places in the center of town. This is the one place on the mountain top where every member of our family and visiting friends (yes, the vegetarians and heart-healthy old-timers, too) finds appetizers and entrees that are always just right and often a bit special.

My wife and I were in here last night for dinner, it was spectacular. Great food, great service, and quiet atmosphere! I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a night out! We enjoyed ourselves, and the food, and service, as did the other guest that were there when we were.

good meal...nice bar. Went here with friends. Walked out happy and stuffed!! We arrived ~5 on a Saturday night, sat right down. It was quite crowded when we left.

Don't be fooled by the no nonsense decor. This place rocks! First, the ladies serving were so genuinely nice, I felt like I was in a five star restaurant in Manhattan. Food was to die for, especially the sauce! Freshly cooked, generous portions and reasonably priced. I had the best Seafood Fra Diavlo ever in my life. Steaks, perfectly cooked. We loved it so much, we came back the very next night. I feel like driving the 3 hours up there just for dinner!

Thank you for the review! It was a pleasure serving you the first night that you came in, and I was very glad to see you the next night for Ladie's Night! Hope to see you back in soon; if not we may have to talk to the owner in to opening a place in the city or Long Island! -Rachel
