Just wondering why it was closed at 4:30 pm on Sunday June 17. The outside sign had open at 4:00pm. Nobody was around inside. Another couple was also waiting to go to dinner. They were surprised it was closed, also. Are the closing?.?

We stopped in as it was next to our hotel. Minestrone soup was more of a marina based soup. Bread was good as other reviewers said. The veal was just ok The service was great and we enjoyed the quaint atmosphere.

After being here a few times I thought I should give this restaurant a review. First, as other people have mentioned, it isn’t much from the outside. It looks like it shares an auto body shop building, but looks can be deceiving. Inside it’s a...More

Briandi's Restaurant is a very small restaurant that you can easily drive past, without notice. There are only about 8-9 tables, and there is often a wait to get in, especially during peak season, but you cannot go wrong! The menu offers lots of wonderful...More
