The atmosphere is lovely. The food and presentation and service always excellent. I have never had a bad experience here. It’s definitely one of the best restaurants in Falmouth.

some entrees were better than others. The fish was good. The scallops were over cooked. The server did a very nice job. It is not a great place to bring children but is a nice place for adults.

Pretty much everything but the gnocchi is gluten free. As far as reservations, you'd have to call them and ask.
