“Surprisingly good Italian American food”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

This is a restaurant on a corner plot by two roads, but the food is surprisingly good. Frankly, way too much of it (huge main courses, enough to feed two people), but tasty, and good quality etc. Decor a bit basic, but nice staff.

“Delish!”
Reviewed 10 August 2013

The food was inventive, fresh, and delicious. Loved the halibut cheeks, scallops with watermelon, and the halibut dinner....outstanding. We also loved the fact that we could dress casually and still have a formal meal. The service was also outstanding from the maître d' to the server. We will go dine here again.

“An unsuspected gem”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

Driving north on I81 we called ahead for reservation. We expected a decent Italian restaurant and found a sleek atmospheric restaurant with excellent salads and freshly prepared pastas good menu but definitely higher priced than what we expected. However the food was also high end so we felt the meal was an excellent value IF you are interested in fine ding

The food was good (I had the Barracuda) but the space was plain and cold. Prices were high and service was ok
