Went for a late lunch and it was terrific. My husband and I shared the calamari appetizer, a flatbread and lasagna. Each dish was very appetizing and the leftovers heated well and were almost as good as at the restaurant. Looking forward to going back.

Ordered Shrimp Marissa for lunch. Extremely oily, rich entree. Restaurant would not honor Travinia gift certificate that was recently purchased. Waiter stated even if they honored the gift certificate, they would not return any remaining amount not used. Very honorable? Overall disappointed.

Great for business lunch or a special dinner. Salads and pasta dishes are fresh and creative. I have never had a bad meal here and always good service. Nicely stocked bar also.

Since there aren't many good restaurants in the North East , this one is an exception. Very nice atmosphere, nice bar, cozy seating area. Our server was outstanding! Unfortunately I don't remember his name again. We had a chicken dish with goat cheese and a pasta dish. Both was very good and very nicely presented. We also had a cool... More

Went here for a going away for my boss - had a party of about 20 - 25 people. I ordered the mahi special, and it was WAY overcooked. Given the occasion, I certainly wasn't going to complain. The rumblings around the office were the same about the food - just really not that good. Also, with a party as... More

From the moment we arrived the wait staff was attentive and very nice. Wine pours were large and a nice selection but not too much to overwhelm. Delicious appetizer of crab cake, so much crab! Then the BLT wedge salad was delicious but if you don't like a lot if dressing get it on the side. I had the pasta... More

We go here as a family and on date nights at least 3 times a month. The service is consistent, the staff are friendly and attentive, the food is great ( my kids like the mac and cheese with smoked gouda and usually do a takeout order for the next day!) and we love the cocktails!

Spouse & I have eaten here twice – once for lunch 2 months ago and then for dinner 2 nights ago. We have recently moved our residence relatively close to the restaurant and both times have been super pleased with the service and the food. The recent dinner was with another couple and ironically we all ordered the same dish... More
