In a nutshell...decent experience...very large portions of pasta, consider splitting an entree and a salad...watch the liquor prices. 3 glasses of wine, 3 entrees and we split a salad... $150+ tip included.

Summer in Bethel means that all if the ski area restaurants are closed and there are few (remaining) options left in town. 22 Broad Street is directly across the street from the Bethel Inn. It has a screen porch that is a delightful spot for a temperate evening but call well ahead as it is quite popular. The inside dining is very nice as well so don't be put off if you can't sit on the deck.

Service was quite good. Our server was there when we needed something (life lesson....don't wear a white shirt to an Italian restaurant ) yet never intrusive.

My wife had a pinot grigio and mom had a cab. Both enjoyed their wine but at $11.00, no bargain.

My mom and I both had the Sunday Gravy...spagetti with homemade sause topped with a meatball, sausage and a slice of briacole. The pasta was more al dente than I like, the sausage was okay but a bit bland, the briacole was good and the meatball excellent. Thing is, we could easily have spilt the dish.

My wife had the eggplant lasagna which sounded great but she felt was too salty with odd flavors that she just couldn't put a finger on.

Overall, the meal was okay. We didn't finish any of our entrees and ended up with a very heavy bag of leftovers.

Great food, apps, drinks and service in a quaint atmosphere. It made for a very romantic night for a long awaited date night.

A delicious and comfortable Italian(?) restaurant. They have both gluten-free and vegetarian options on their menu which was great for our group.
The atmosphere can work for either casual or dress-up so it's easy to choose this restaurant for all sorts of occasions.
