We booked this restaurant having heard many great things. It was a huge disappointment. The service was poor, the staff did not seem to care in any way. Looking around everyone was feeling the same frustrations with the staff. They dropped off our second $50...More

There's a reason it's crowded all the time! Terrific food with a great wine selection and friendly Shelter Island hospitality. Also recommend their market in the back for take-out containers of their mysteriously delicious bolognese sauce.
