“Warm and welcoming”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Wonderful, Joanne and Valentino were so warm and friendly. Very Romantic setting even though we were in a group of three couples. We ordered wine and starters and while they were being prepared there was a fire pit out back on the patio where we were lead with a blanket and wine. Then Joanne calls us in for our meal. The flavors were amazing. I do not believe there would be a choice on the menu that you did not love.

“Dissapointing food”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B host but unfortunately didn't live up to its expectations.
Our food was cold, some of the veggies were well past their best.
However the service was very good

“Superb”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

We have been dinning with Jo Anne , Val l and their son Nick since they opened 2 years ago and have had fantastic service combined with delicious cuisine prepared by Val. It's truly a dinning experience. We are in business in town and have brought many friends who share our opinion.
Keep up the great work . People are coming from all over the area and favourably impressed.
