Excellent and flavorful. The veal was great and done perfectly but I couldn't eat it all and took the rest home. Dessert was tartufo and delicious. Was offered... More

Located in downtown Shelton, which by the way is booming with activity, we just love this place. The service is great and the food even better. My husband always gets the chicken Part, he's very fussy and he just loves it. I'm a linguine and clams girls and they make it great. Atmosphere is lovely. Who says you have to... More

Menu, service and atmosphere are great. Dinning room is right sized to keep noise at a minimum. Very elegant

This restaurant isn't very big but the food is always cooked to perfection and the taste of each dish is wonderful. The staff is very friendly and attentive. For a small restaurant the staff is always bustling around as it is always very busy there. I love going to this hidden gem in Shelton.

We started with a very well made drink at the bar. When we got seated it took about 10 minutes to get menus. The service didn't get a lot better from there. The food however was fantastic. The side salad with the balsamic vinagarette dressing was perhaps a little too bitey but was otherwise a very good salad. The Osso... More

It was a weekday no rush at all. We were party of 8 and got comfortable seating. Food was good, I ordered chicken piccata. Only feedback was that chicken was bit dry. Dessert was very tasty especially the tiramisu cake. Definitely worth a shot
