My husband came across this little restaurant when he was searching for a business located in the area, What an awesome find! Great homemade food, fun and quirky decor, and fabulous owner. We had an absolutely wonderful lunch and plan to take our whole family there shortly.

My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for an evening meal to celebrate our Anniversary. As we were the only people there we were able to enjoy a delightful meal, sharing fresh homemade bread with oil and balsamic to dip the bread in, as well as a lovely plate of Italian cured meat, olives, cheese, and petite crackers....

I have been here a couple of times and it is interesting. The food is quite good although I believe the owner thinks it is fine dining whereas it is far from that. Inappropriate comments from the owner and overall strangeness make me uncomfortable every visit. The Valentine's day supper was described as "European seating", meaning that we were seated... More

Poor service. Mediocre food. Would not go back and would not recommend. Decor was lousy. Overall not a good experience.

I went there with a friend for Sunday breakfast/brunch yesterday and we were both happy with our choices. The food was excellent at a reasonable price compared with other breakfast restaurants around town. I will definitely go back.

This new little restaurant just hidden down the road from the silver buckle pub is an absolute gem. Great menu, excellent wine list and relaxing atmosphere. Staff were very friendly. The real italien ice cream and the fish of the day were especially good. I will definitely be returning. Makesure to call ahead and reserve to avoid disappointment. Well worth... More

We had a great time at this restaurant. We were the only patrons that evening, which was perfect for our first date night after having a baby! The owner and our server were attentive and made our experience very nice. We enjoyed our food, however, we too felt the value wasn't quite up to par with the prices. However, with... More
