We ate here as a party of six. The place is small-ish, but fortunately we had no wait at 6:00 pm on a Saturday night. Everyone had something different (Chicken Parmesean, Filet Mignon, Salmon, etc.) and everyone loved what they had. The bread is great (from a local bakery). The pasta is tender and delicious. I would eat here often... More

Took the girls out to a great Italian dinner. We were greeted, seated and poured a nice Cab while salads were prepared with in 10 minutes of our arrival. The one pound Boston Strip and Eggplant Parmigiana was delicious. The portions were so large we had another meal to enjoy at home. I highly recommend this fine establishment.

Ordered the King Prime rib fit for a king cooked perfectly waited for horseradish sauce but didn't get it until meal was done. Also order the clam bake (perfect) and New York strip. Service was not very good, seemed short on waitresses. Price was average for the menu.

We went here to celebrate with family. The prices are way expensive for what you get. The average place is $27. The food is nothing special although quantities are on the larger size. I ordered the beef medallions with shrimp in a bernaise sauce. The shrimp tasted like the frozen kind and the beef was little and quite fatty and... More

The Depot is walking distance from the Steele Mansion Inn. Food and beverages are standard Italian influence. Acceptable but not stellar. Friendly staff.

One guy had grilled salmon and said it tasted great. The other guy liked his veal Parmesan. My wife had the chicken Parmesan and was pleased. Two... More
