The food was absolutely delicious. Everything was so fresh. Service was great. We were so glad to read a review of this restaurant in the "guest book" which was in our suite. Wish we lived in the area instead of 715 miles away in Kentucky!...More

A good Italian dinner. The food was well done but fairly standard (e.g., basic tomato sauce, pasta). The decor and the experience did not match the price. The price is towards fine-dining but the food and decor are not at that level.

Couldn't let our vacation conclude without a happy hour on Al Vento's patio in our hood. We always feel so welcomed and today we tried a chicken dish rather than a pasta dish. They split it for us and it was beautifully presented and delicious....More

We have eaten here close to a dozen times and recently tried their pizzas. They are fantastic! I won't be going to Punch ever again. Their pasta dishes are excellent, as are the appetizers. Try their crostini. They have a nice selection of beers and...More
