It s nice to have a restaurant out of the city that offers Vito's fine food and yet not have to make the trek in Hartford or West Hartford. Nice Atmosphere and pretty scenarery no matter the season.

Had dinner here with my German colleagues and boss. The service was good. Our steaks were overdone. Oysters and meatball appetizers very good. Espresso was more like cafe americano in a demitasse cup.More
