At lunch my friend and I lingered nearly three hours over delicious soup, salad and pasta, with nary a complaint or comment from staff. Of course, it was not too crowded that day.

Well, got a Groupon to give this establishment a swing. Decided to try brunch. We were literally the only 2 people in the restaurant. Obviously sat immediately, but took some time to get juices and coffee. Ordered a crepe for an app which was good!...More

We went a few times when we moved to Colchester. Food and service was great but menu is limited. On our last visit we both ordered the pan seared scallop special and a caraf of sangria. The scallops were sliced in half so it appeared...More

A choice to eat inside or on the porch tonight. Enjoyed a good Italian Margarita (with Amaretto). Can't say much for the bread. The dipping oil was nice. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the salmon and especially the risotto! I had the rigatoni with basil cream...More
