From Aperitivo to Dessert, everything was amazing and we couldn't stop eating. Service was impeccable. The waitress (whose English was really good) was the friendliest and the most personable of the whole Italian experience. The best part was when Giovanni, the owner, showed up with...More

The only detail that could be improved is the variety of available side dishes (contorni, in Italian): there were almost no...More

Really good food, nice prices and great service... The staff was really friendly. There wasn't a table for one left, but the waiter made room for me at the bar and I didn't regret it. The food was just lovely and I got the opportunity...More

Fantastic food, wine and atmosphere. The service from Eugenie was outstanding, she knew the menu inside out and we went with her recommendations. I couldn't recommend Il Bistrot highly enough.

The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.
