We thoroughly enjoyed our food and ate everything on our plate. I had the carbonara entree and my husband had the manicotti and sausage. The bread was also very good. The waitress was very friendly and accommodating, even though she was very busy with other tables. This was a great dining experience.

This brick-walled environment is subdued and cozy, and the waitresses always professional. I no longer live in Connecticut but when passing through I always make... More

After almost 7 hours on the road, we called the restaurant to see if they had space for dinner. We gave my name and when we arrived there was a space ready for us. The hostess was very upbeat and friendly, and our server was attentive and helpful, getting us whatever we needed. The tastes were superb, the cozy old... More

It was a beautiful day and we wanted to sit outside, so the patio under the pergola was a perfect setting. Our server was attentive and personable and served delicious bread. We ordered gnocchi and it was delicious...one of the best that we have enjoyed. The mudpie was excellent. We usually don't order it because most places make it too... More

Stopped in for drinks, small bar but very nice. Nice and quaint. It is quite dark with uneven floors, be careful walking.

We visited in a busy Saturday evening, arrived just before 6 pm and the place was packed! Thankfully we were able to grab a drink and stand near the bar for a short wait before our table was ready. The wait staff were attentive, pleasant and helpful. Food was very good, we had fried mozzarella (delicious), calamari (fresh), lobster ravioli... More

I hadn't been here in a while because I tend to avoid downtown during the busy season. I went with a friend yesterday and had a great time, as usual. The food was great. Started with the soup of the day - a spicy crab pumpkin bisque. Just the right amount of heat. Shared garlic bread during dinner I had... More
