“Looking Forward to Our Next Dinner Here”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

What can I say beside excellent, yummy, a winner! We LOVE this place. The atmosphere is great. A beautiful old farmhouse with attached barn - we love this section for seating. Wait staff are wonderful! The bread bar - well, let's just say when there it is hard to stay away. They are accommodating to everyone and extremely friendly to the young, the old and everyone in between. I am always impressed by their attentiveness, the quality of food and the great service all around. Can't wait for our next meal here!

“Never Fails to Please”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

This restaurant is always our "go to place" when we are just looking for some good food, casual atmosphere, comprehensive menu and great service, all at reasonable prices. From pizza to swordfish we always find something on the menu to please everyone. Our latest visit was no exception. The bread table is our first stop; love the spicy garlic oil, balsamic vinegar and fresh parmesan cheese. So happy that they now offer the oils and vinegar bottled for take home too! DH had the swordfish special, I had my favorite, shrimp and scallop puttanesca and the grandkids had the personal pizza. Noticing that the pizzas were slightly overcooked, they were taken off of our tab, no questions asked, and a replacement offered. Now that is good customer service! We are also impressed that the manager has been highly visible, interacting with patrons as they dine. Nice touch!
There are many reasons why our family always asks to dine here when they visit, and why we keep coming back.
Highly recommended whether you are local or visiting the area.

“Going downhill”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Got there around 5:30 on a mid-July evening, soon after they opened for dinner. A very mixed bag. We could not believe our eyes when the "Eggplant Parmigiana" arrived. It looked like it was produced by a machine. When we asked, the server acknowledged that it came from a package. That's not why we go out to eat! I ordered the special drink of the day, which contained strawberries. I was asked to wait because the manager had to go out and buy strawberries. Hello - you are only open for dinner and offer a strawberry special and have just opened for the evening, and you didn't remember to order strawberries???

The rest of the meal was decent. Service was excellent - our server could not have been nicer. That's the only reason I'm still giving it 3 stars. But the overall impression (after coming here a couple of times every summer for at least 12 years) was that the place is going downhill. It's owned by the Common Man group, which seems to have restaurants sprouting up in lots of places around this region. Seems profits are being prioritized higher than food quality.

When we left the parking lot and had to drive very carefully around a giant pothole that could easily damage someone's car when they don't see it in the dark, it was just another sign that this place is not what it used to be. Sad ... I don't think we'll be back.

“very good casual food”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

My wife and I ate at the Italian Farmhouse late Sunday evening. The food was very good. I had the steak tips with a reduced red wine sauce and my wife had the spinach and chicken lasagna. We also had the Capresse salad which was served an a bed of Arugala. Everything was quite tasty. They also have a warm bread bar with butter and flavored olive oils. The service was good especially since our waitress had a lot of tables to wait on. It is a very warm and friendly place but it tends to be on the noisy side because of all the young families. It might be a little quieter if you sit at the bar which would be okay for a couple but not practical for larger parties. Over all we will go back because after all we go for the food.
