We visited Old Town with our parents and grandma. The atmosphere is reminiscent of places we've visited in Europe. The servers are charming and attentive. For five people, we ordered three entrees (each comes with a salad), two bowls of soup, and two desserts. We...More

The food at Old Town is out of this world! We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years. There is a wide variety of authentic dishes to choose from - the Serbian sampler platter that had small portions of several of their recipes, Goulash, Sarma,...More
