This popular restaurant in downtown Brattleboro is closing soon. It will reopen with a different name and a new owner.

There were 13 of us for a birthday celebration on a busy post-Thanksgiving Friday evening. The space was a bit awkward, but we made it work. We ordered an appetizer of mussels and 2 of the baked feta. Both were excellent and disappeared quickly.
Drinks included a variety of wines, cocktails and beer and were enjoyed by all. (I don't drink much...) the alcohol tab came to $135. Cocktails are pricey, but that seems to be the norm these days.
Dinner entrees included pastas, salad and various pizzas. Pizzas are thin crust with out of the ordinary toppings (butternut squash, spinach, etc....) The 4 onion pizza was especially tasty. Gluten free options are also available.
Our waiter was great, personable, capable and managed our large party with humor and aplomb. It was my sister's 60th birthday and she scored a free tiramisu which was shared around.....delicious.
as for expense, two could share a pizza and salad and spend a reasonable amount. for this special occasion, we weren't concerned about the cost....

The kale salad was very good – nice flavors and composition. However the pizza was very disappointing. One was overly sauced, with a bland sauce at that. And the Bianca was dry with a thick ricotta paste.

Our first visit here, and, sadly, our last. Surprising to say, because the burger may well be the best in town. But the service isn't just slow, it's barely detectable. It wasn't busy, but the spread of delivery for six meals was over 10 minutes- and bizarrely the last plates a salad.

Two of the meals came with named ingredients missing, and the ordered truffle fries were not sent out. They were replaced, in fairness, but only as we finished the main meals.

It has to be said that the defective meals were removed from the check- without requiring a fight, and desserts were free all round.
But I would rather have paid full price and had it right, and timely.

Met family here half way between our homes in MA and NH for a casual Friday evening meal / family meeting. We were all pleased with the experience. Reservations promptly honored, and we were honored with a large, private booth, yet near the kitchen and all the action.

Beer selection and craft cocktails impressive. My Blood Orange Margarita was outstanding. Two of us had the spaghetti marinara, one had the burger (who orders a burger in a casual Italian restaurant - apparently my son-in-law does - he pronounced it as excellent), and one order of the evening fresh, local-foraged Gnocchi special.

No complaints; highly recommended.
