We have heard excellent things about this restaurant for years and have never tried it. Our loss. Looks small on the outside, but is much bigger and nicer inside. We went on a Wednesday. One special was all you can eat pizza. We gave it a try and it was excellent. A whole pie was brought to our table and... More

We are so sorry you were disappointed with your dinner with us, and we were out of the two things that you ordered! I make a pan lasagna almost daily and it's always fresh so at times we do run out. Not sure what happened with you waitress but it sounds like she was not doing her part and making... More

Best Italian food in the area. Reasonable price, Excellent Service and well worth the stop. Relatively new to the area, this restaurant has made all the right moves. VERY popular. Strongly suggest reservations, especially "in-season." A gem in the village of Chaumont.

Start off with garlic knots. They are excellent if you like garlic, a lot of garlic. Why not, it's good for you. Soups are very good, entrees are consistently good, pizza is the best in the area. There is a steady stream of pizza to go all night! Ok, on to dessert, get the maple walnut log!!! Even if you... More

I passed by this place several times enroute to the Cape. Stopping was never a consideration until a friend said to give it a try. I was very surprised. This is an Italian restaurant with food to temp the tastebuds. I now stop by once a month to patronize this non franchise establishment.

Don't blink if you're going through town you'll miss this place, it's definitely a hidden gem. Stopped in with my daughter for an early dinner, Pizza is good best in the area that we've had. I tried the scallop shrimp clams over pasta special that they were running that night, that was good. Place is good for families or as... More

I have been coming here for some time for dinner and takeouts. The food is amazing and not just the pizza. The pasta dishes are the highlight in my opinion! The food is consistant and the service is excellent. The owners make you feel welcome and appreciative of your business. The decor was updated last winter. Chicken cordon bleu and... More

I can't say how many times we have driven past this "hole in the wall", and not noticed it. A neighbor told me that he calls ahead to place their take-out order on their way. The last week we were running late and decided to check it out. Once through the doors, the place opens up into an inviting dining... More
