My sister took my wife and I here for dinner tonight. The mussels are fantastic and a huge serving. The cyprese was divine with fresh local mozzarella. We had soft shell crabs, fried oysters and fried scallops. All three were excellent.

It is a solid great restaurant for an enjoyable meal. We have never been disappointed. The oysters are tremendous. Ordering the specials will be a delight. The only chef I'm aware who is not afraid to serve an acorn squash as a side vegetable dish!...More

This place is definitely pricey, but the new location is bright and light. I had a whole brazano that had been split open so no bones and grilled perfectly. Also, of course, their signature squash with maple and sugar. My husband had a special pasta...More
