Best food in all of Waterbury. Great bar area, but romantic ambiance in the dining area. The chef just won best chef in CT and he's so deserving. Try the shrimp toast as an app and my favorite dinner is the scallops. Enjoy!!

After reading a dozen reviews, I was a bit negative going in. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Sunday evening, great service, very friendly and very informed. We opted tp do a bunch of appetizers. Excellent! We did roasted peppers, fresh homemade but should have been...More

This is not a place I would write home about. I am used to much better Italian. We were here for a business meeting so it was a convenient location. The best part of the meal was the wonderful salad. At $8 it was well...More

The only thing good about this place is the food . We had 8:15 dinner reservations in the bar since there would be no tables available in the dining room at that time. We arrive at 8:10 and stand at the hostess pedestal for at...More
