Because of the restaurant's popularity and small seating area, our party of 8 could only get reservations at 8:00. Though plenty of seats were available upon our arrival, we had to wait for our table to be set. While the food was "enjoyable," the waitress appeared to have checked out for the night. When she apologized for having forgotten my... More

Our family of four had a wonderful meal here to celebrate the last night of our vacation. We loved Orzo and highly recommend it. All of the food was delicious and very fresh. We had the caesar salad, bolognese pasta, a fish entree and an amazing mushroom risotto. The service was great and super friendly. We loved the ambiance and... More

This critique is strictly from the point of view of a vegetarian. First of all, from my perspective, the spring dinner menu is lackluster and low on creativity. If not for the good 'crushed fava bruschetta', I would have given 1 star. The mushroom risotto is the worst Risotto I have ever eaten in my life. It was so bad... More

This is a superb restaurant not far from the main University site. Some excellent food, the lamb being particularly good. Can thoroughly recommend a visit.

My spouse and I went there for dinner with a friend. The waitress was attentive and helpful. The food was fine; the squash soup appetizer was great. There was also a trout special for dinner that was very good.

Love this place just wish there was a little more space in the seating. The food is outstanding and the service has always been excellent. The only thing I would change is to add a little more space in the seating - you are seated close to other diners and I would rather have a little privacy.

Everything here was "5 star". Attentive, friendly wait staff, strong wine list, great food. Hubby and daughter had pasta dishes and I had roast duck with polenta that was really top shelf.
