This is a restaurant gem! Everyone thought their entrees were the most tasteful they've ever had - a vegetable/pasta medley, a delicate salmon, sea bass and veal. You will never find a better mushroom soup (you will regret not ordering the large size!). This was...More

I recently visited on a snowy evening and had a wonderful dinner and evening. The food is fabulous, staff extremely attentive and the owner very hands on. It is a BYOB . Would definitely go there again if in the area. Recommend reservations.
