It seemed that the BYOB culture of this area lead to result of the place having a bar overcrowded with bar business. It claims to be a craft cocktail place but really is a beer and wine bar with bad dry tasteless pizza.

In town for wine tastings and found this gem along the way. Everyone in my group was pleased with the outstanding food and service. I'll go back if I'm ever in the area again.

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.
