Group Dinner from one of the large conference hotels nearby. 28 friends. 3 large tables. 3 waitstaff. Great service, from opening round drinks to tab. Nice fresh salad. Hot garlic knots. Full size pasta served on large flat bowls. The management has a great place and the service from greeting to cooks are doing a fine job. Molto bene!

Four of us had reservations for the last night of Restaurant Week.Two of us had the appetizer Artichoke Heart Fritter which was good. For the main course, 2 of us had the Mushroom Ravioli with Walnut Pesto Cream Sauce and 2 chose the Lobster and Crab Ravioli. All of us thought our ravioli dish was excellent. The salad was disappointing.... More

I have been to the vineyard twice for lunch and dinner. Each time the food was excellent. Real Italian, and that comes from someone who lived in Italy for 3 years. Both times I chose the Eggplant Rolotini, but my fellow diners had other dishes which were also super. The service was friendly and efficient and the waitstaff were very... More

Arrived Friday evening for our 7pm reservation to a totally empty restaurant. Only one other table was seated the entire time we were there. For some reason we were seated in the back corner right next to the POS system the waiters use - clearly the least desirable table in the place, highlighted by the fact that every single table...

we have enjoyed this restaurant for years but they have really stepped up the quality of food. Our server, Jeff, was attentive and entertaining. I have a real favorite and the Veal Caprese was off the chart! The house salad was fresh and also very tasty. cant wait to get back for some more great Italian food.

Everything I've tried there has been tasty, but I especially love their homemade marinara sauce, so I feel like I cheat myself when I don't order eggplant rollatine, lasagna, or something that calls for it. The house salads and garlic knots, which accompany entrees, are delicious too. I enjoy the music, atmosphere, cuisine, and house wines. It feels like a... More

Food was good. Good selection of American and Italian, and seafood. Great selection of wines too. Atmosphere is quaint and pleasant. Wasn't crowded and you could talk in a normal tone. My only complaint was that when I placed my order, I asked ordered an appetizer for the whole table. Everyone's meal came quickly and I asked about the appetizer,... More
