Fantastic food, good service and drinks. Love the procoiutto slicer in the dining room! Make reservations for Fridays and Saturdays as soon as possible or you will end up in the basement dining room.

Best food in all of Waterbury. Great bar area, but romantic ambiance in the dining area. The chef just won best chef in CT and he's so deserving. Try the shrimp toast as an app and my favorite dinner is the scallops. Enjoy!!

Been to this restaurant before and found it to be outstanding. Last night (03-10-17) at a six o'clock dinner, we were very disappointed. The fried calamari was greasy and appeared to be fried in old oil. The sea bass had bones in it, and the...More
