Beautiful Victorian restaurant across from the Bethel Inn on Main Street. Friendly service. Lovely space. They're eager to sell you the expensive wines, though we opted for beer instead. The carpaccio and beet salad were quite good, as were my husband's boneless braised short ribs,...More

Best place when visiting Sunday River, & Bethel/Newry. You couldn't ask for a friendlier server in Sheila. She took care of us above and beyond what is expected. Food outstanding. Family's are welcome and taken care of. Romantic setting for the 6:30pm and later crowd....More

Our meal was not only delicious, I had enough for a second meal the next day! Justin, our waiter, was wonderfully friendly and conversational without infringing on our privacy. We sat by the fireplace and enjoyed the ambiance. We will definitely return

Six of us dined on the Tuesday after Christmas. We were seated at a round table near a warm, glowing fireplace, which made our meal more cozy. The food was deliciously prepared. I had the brasciole special (not on regular menu) which was so tasty...More

I'm serious about my Italian food - very serious. I've cooked in the kitchens of a FoodNetwork Italian "Iron Chef"; dine at the best trattorias and ristorantes in Rome and Tuscany; and, I'm almost a regular at NYC's finest. 22 Broad Street makes my A-List....More
