The food is very delicious, well prepared, appetizing and large portions. The staff is very friendly. I like being able to see in the kitchen though the large window.

A North Branford favorite! Dine here at least two to three Saturday nights a month. Live 30 seconds away, couldn't be any more convenient. Food is awesome, drinks are amazing. Sit at the beautiful bar for dinner & the service from Mike & Val (bartenders) couldn't be better. This is a 5 star hands down. A must try!

Once a year visit, Mike the bartender made up a drink for me because he didn't have the ingredients for one that I asked for. We had an excellent meal with appetizers and salad. We are never disappointed with the exquisite quality of the food.

We frequent this restaurant because it is the only gig in town, not because the food or the ambience is sensational. The food is mediocre-although perhaps more time is needed to give the new chef a chance. The restaurant is crowded, noisy-between the bar and the kitchen activity you get to see into from the restaurant-it's not relaxing at all.... More

Look, I won't bore you with details about how the restaurant is in a strip mall or how the kitchen can be viewed through the glass wall as you dine. The food is ridiculously good. Seriously. Just freaking go. You can thank me later.

This is an absolutely phenomenal local restaurant. It has always been known for good food and you can always rely on it. I wouldn't go during prime time on Friday evening or Saturday though because it is so packed you can't get a seat and you can't get the attention of a bartender. But if you go in the middle... More

Very good food and good portions Very small through. Bar is right near tables but pretty quiet. Easy to get to on Rt. 80. Medium priced. Good service

Basically this is a tremendous value and quite frankly a hidden gem. Located in a tiny strip mall on RT80 just west of the Guilford town line, it has really excellent freshly prepared food. The menu turns toward Mediterranean with some risotto and pasta dishes but it is far better than even somewhat upscale Italian restaurants. It has a full... More
