Excellent service and the food was delicious. Just don't forget to bring cash because they don't accept credit cards - cash and checks only.

Always friendly and fast service. Food is reliably good from pastas to fish dishes. They make fantastic mashed potatoes and great Marsala sauce. We love their fresh shrimp and salmon tartare. All chicken dishes are superb. Must try the lobster ravioli. You will appreciate the free house salad! There is also a very good wine list.

This is the first time in my dining life that I have to get up and search out our waitstaff (and it was not crowded) to ask where our food was. The veal entree was good but perhaps a little too well done. The decor was attractive and in the summer. with the door open should be very pleasant.

This is a wonderful place for couples, families, business lunches, or just a dinner out with friends. Pleasant, attentive staff. Bread to die for! Great Italian food (and good portion sizes). A delightful ambiance. All at very reasonable prices. (Credit cards not accepted.) Frequent often!

My bride and I wanted a friendly, yet intimate place for a good meal; she loves steam and I let the menu move my mood :) The food hit the spot - she loved her filet topped w/lobster and bearnaise sauce, and my tuna tartare was perfectly; plentiful and tasty. The the downsides were that I prefer more wasabi (but... More

I have been to this restaurant and its sister restaurant in Danbury, CT. While the Danbury, CT MAX 40 has a slightly bigger menu, this restaurant for the items it carries is nearly the same and also excellent. The steaks are about the best in the area and it is an enjoyable place to have dinner in Wilton.

I loved this place and really enjoyed the food. I treated my daughter and her friends out for a (birthday) girls lunch. They loved the food as well. The restaurant is very open with high ceilings and interesting lighting. The wait staff are very friendly and accomodating. The prices are above average. That said, I was really surprised when I...

The wine choices are excellent, the service is better than most, the menu offers a wide selection and the specials are excellent. This restaurant has a very comfortable, quality ambience, quiet, enjoyable. One of our favorites to enjoy with friends. I highly recommend it.
