In town for the last 15 years and never visited till now. The beer selection and taste excellent. Appetizers were outstanding, best eggplant rolatini I have ever had and great grilled Buffalo wings! Kudos to a great wait staff! Will definitely come back. Regarding the...pizza on a 1-10 scale an 8, not a fan of a the crust they can do better I’m sure. All the bestMore

This was our first time here. We are not from the area but my son has Celiac and wanted pasta. We found this restaurant on one of the gluten free sites that we often use. From the minute we walked in the hostess was friendly,...there was a great atmosphere and the tables were spaced comfortably apart. Our server, Paul, was excellent! He was knowledgeable about the beer selections and was very accommodating for the gluten free options for my son. My son loved the gluten free pasta and only wished that he could’ve ordered 2! My husband and I enjoyed everything we ordered as well - burrata, pasta fagioli, chicken marsala and chicken parmigiana. We left some room for dessert too! The creme brûlée was outstanding as was the ricotta cheese cake. My son had the vanilla ice cream but they have a flourless chocolate cake that’s gluten free. The best part of the meal was when I took a chance and asked Paul if it was possible for my son to order garlic bread with mozzarella. I saw on the menu that they offered gluten free buns with their burgers and wondered if it was possible to use those buns. The head chef, Steve, came to our table to make sure what we wanted and then said “Done!”. A few minutes later my son had the biggest smile on his face as he enjoyed his garlic bread. It’s not always easy to find a restaurant so accommodating to people with Celiac! My husband and I were pretty impressed with the level of service here. We will definitely return again and again!! Thank you so much for such an enjoyable dinner!!More

I was looking for a local place to take out orichette, broccoli rabe and sausage. We saw it on the menu, and decided to try take out. It was terrible! Mushy overcooked broccoli rabe and watery pasta. So so disappointing! At a price point of...$24 this was a total waste.More

The atmosphere was good but the service was slow and I got a $39 New York Strip that was dry, flavorless, and way overpriced.

Stopped by for lunch since they had a big section for out door seating. View isn’t the best but it was better than waiting an hour some where else. The food was pretty good. We had the Brussels sprouts which were very good and the...wings were a nice size. Fresh salads to choose from and such nice combinations to them. The beet salad was refreshing. The Reuben was a little over done but I assumed it was due to the cheese being melted. The summer lager on tap now was tasty too. Hit of Carmel but not sweet. Nice amber color that was smooth. Our service was good as well. Very attentive. Thank you Christina. Very pleasant. Overall, would go back again maybe for dinner.More

Celebrating the holidays with friends excellent waitress service and food. Would definitely go back. We didn’t feel rushed until after we paid the bill. While Finishing our coffee someone who was very insistent came to clear off our table...killed the mood.

I've gone here numerous times and recommended to friends, but never again. What an embarrassment! I took clients here and waited over an hour only to be served the wrong food order! I asked for the manager and was told the kitchen was backed up....I asked her why several tables were served before us even though they were seated after us? She said the reason for the delay was because we ordered Chicken Marsala and it takes longer. Really? It takes an hour for Chicken Marsala?? The manager offered free deserts, but at this point we were starving and wanted our food. Realizing we would have to wait again for a corrected order led us to leave and never return.More

We went for happy hour. The drink specials and wine are delicious and a great price. The spicy brussel sprouts were fantastic. We also had the balsamic calamari, tuna tartar, and avocado toast which were all tasty. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back

We were fortunate to stop there for an early dinner, and we didn't know that they offer 3 course early bird meals before 5:30 pm. The calamari appetizer was excellent as long as the caesar salad. The salmon, roast beef, chicken parmagiana were some of...the very good entrees. Desserts include tres leche, brownie ala mode, ice cream, etc. The service was excellent and the portions were generous. I recommend the Artisan Pale Ale.More
