I had the Grouper with Fredericksburg peaches, caesar salad and wife had shrimp gamberetti limone. Fine wine selection. I will return.

Amazing home style pasta AND service! Make reservations if you don't want to wait an hour...but it is worth the wait! The seafood "misto mare" was incredible and the best we've ever tasted. We come here every summer and look forward to our pasta fix! Servers were very attentive.

This is one of our favorite places to celebrate special occassions! The food is always devine, and the relaxed atmosphere is very comfortable. Service is also exception-- finally somewhere with trained and experienced staff! Really, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu, but their steaks are some of the very best I have ever had at a restaurant. You dont have to go to the big city for great food!

Very nice menu, great service.
Ceasar salad with shrimp and scallops was awesome, but the scallopini with dried tomato, artichoke and mushroom cream sauce was amazing. Ordered a glass of wine and it was not quite right - replaced with another with no issues. Highly recommend

This restaurant was recommended to us be relatives and we found it to be as advertised. The service by our waitress, Kika, was excellent and she was well informed about their menu and wine list. I had a great linguine with beef tips and sautéed bacon and onions that was great. My wife had a very good steak. Kika suggested an excellent cabernet sav. (Carnivore) . This place fills up rapidly on most notes so reservations recommended. The red snapper is listed at $29, so that is $10 less than Lisabella's.
