Just came back from another consistent dinner at AJ’s. So lucky to have such proximity to a great restaurant. I had the swordfish special but most dishes are very solid.

This is our favorite Italian restaurant in Mystic. It's small and intimate if you sit to the right of the bar. The service is friendly and spot on. You can't go wrong with any of the meals, but you might have to wait for a...More
