We were visiting the area several weeks ago and decided on dinner here, based on reviews and recommendations. The restaurant is located in a rather charming old hardware store. However, decor is all over the place and there is an unexplainable smell about the building...musty, mildewy, just old smell. It was not pleasant. All the seating is in one wide open space so don't expect any level of privacy or intimacy dining here. Noise level is hardly tolerable. Not the place for a romantic, relaxing dinner. We were seated promptly and the server seemed knowledgeable and was efficient. I was sincerely hoping that the food would compensate for the atmosphere. Sadly, it did not. My salad was not particularly fresh. tomatoes past their prime and lettuce slightly wilted. I ordered the house dressing which is a secret family recipe. It was not at all what I expected for an Italian restaurant's house dressing. It seemed to be a strange combination of sugar and mayonnaise. My husband had the balsamic and it was much better. Needless to say I did not eat my salad. The entrees came out promptly and my lasagna was just passable. Mostly cheese with very little sauce. I felt the sauce was a little bland as well. I've had better food for half the price at little pizza joints and Olive garden type establishments, and those places aren't stingy with the bread either...we received one small piece each with our meal here. There is no way to justify these prices for sub-par food. My only guess is that people are buying because there aren't many options to choose from in the tiny town where they are located. We try to visit this area at least once a year and on previous trips we had dined in nearby Winston Salem and Elkin. Both towns have some really great restaurants that feature many local red wines(another thing that was lacking here) so i would definitely recommend traveling the short distance to one of these nearby towns for a better dining experience in this area.
