Everything was pretty average. I was hoping to be wowed from all the high reviews. I can't complain but I also can't give a five star rating. I'm from Corning, so I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again. If I lived...More

And: very popular. Even off-season on a weekday people were waiting to get in. Download the Nowait app to your smartphone and put yourself on their list before setting out. (Nowait works in many cities, sometimes with local gems like this, sometimes only chain restaurants.)

We enjoyed mussels and pizza here, a great spot on the edge of the square, perfect for listening to Thursday night entertainment in summer. Service was friendly and fast. Dishes were amazing.

Great looking bistro, highly recommend. But we were just not in mood for anything on menu, especially at the prices. Had drinks and appetizers. My "special" ($10) mochatini was ok; thought I'd try something other than wine since we'd been out tasting that day. Friend...More
