Thoroughly enjoyed our meal which was well paced and we'll proportioned. Located inside a small cluster of medical buildings; it was dark and raining and the only way we found it was to look where the cars were parked. Nice collection of craft beers, ciders,...More

We had an issue with a reservation at 1906 at Longwood due to weather. Thankfully TA lead us here. This is an inviting bistro with a very nice food and drinks menu. The pizzas were especially good.

I'd skip Sovana and make reservations at Catherine's (in Unionville) - just a couple of miles down the road. Sovana was a disappointing experience the last two times we visited.
