We often find the best little restaurants in nondescript shopping centers and this no exception. Obviously a local favorite too. Excellent wait staff, quick service, and nice combination sandwiches which we all ordered for lunch, even a glass of wine which is always nice.

This family-run restaurant makes for a great spot for lunch and dinner. The owner, Angel, came to my table to discuss my food allergies and served me a delicious dinner!! Food servings are large and included vegetables, pasta, chicken, and salad. Early bird specials include dessert and wine. Wait staff were extremely friendly and patients and accommodating. Food specials are... More

My wife & I decided to have lunch at this little cozy restaurant prior to going to Bethel, CT. Summer Festival on Saturday. My wife & I both loved our lunch. Our server was really nice & friendly. We were even approached by the owner to make sure everything was ok. We were both really impressed. We will definitely return.

Stopped for lunch and had big selection on menu, had delicious pear/gorgonzola salad, very pleasant and attentive waitress, and love the old fashioned colonial decor. Not at all what I expected - it looks as if it would be a tiny hole-in-the-wall from size of the little strip shopping center, but it's quite large and comfortable. Now that we know... More

This restaurant is "plain" only in the fact that it doesn't get all over you about its own wonderfulness! The dining room is cozy and attractive – and blissfully quiet! You can actually TALK with your dinner companions… And the food is quite a bit more than you might have been thinking it would be. I had a tilapia filet,... More

Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and accommodating with good suggestions. The food was very good, the chicken Marcela was tender and... More

Have been here a couple of times during visits with relatives. The food has always been excellent, the help friendly, the prices very reasonable. The pear salad was great, and they did not stint on the gorgonzola. Had a very pleasant lunch, only quibble is that there is not a lot of parking available. Not the restaurant's fault.
