This restaurant is at the Fairfield Hampton and is one of the best. The personal pizzas are fantastic as is the calamari. I've also enjoyed traditional Italian fare equally as good. Serving sizes are more than generous. Half price wine by the bottle on Wednesday nights.

Solo meal on business, great location to hangout plus they have a formal dinning room. I had beet salad and blackened salmon. Was way above average! Plus healthy preparation. Hard to believe it is in a hampton. If I lived in area I would frequent it.

Delicious meal! Great menu selection with everything from salads, pizza and pasta to chicken, fish and beef. The restaurant is the type of place that you could visit regularly for a casual night out or for a more special occasion. Good service.

I reviewed several of the review this restaurant had been given previously and I was anxious to experience what other reviewers experienced, BUT, I was sorely disappointed. When we arrived the hostess attempted to seat us in the back of the restaurant where at least two of the seats had no view of the rest of the restaurant. We told... More

This restaurant is very nice and I would recommend it to my friends and family. Very nice atmosphere and the food was all delicious. Can be a bit pricey but it's more of an upscale venue.

When we got to the restaurant there was a private event in the main dining room, so we were offered a table in the lobby area by the fireplace. We weren't happy with that, so they offered us a table up in the balcony which we were very happy with. We were the only diners up there, but our server... More

Restaurant downsized the menu selections as well as the size of their overall menu. Sole was ok not extraordinary and portions small. Pork Osso Bucco was good. Just not as "Wow" as it used to be.

I've been coming to this area for 20 years on business and this is the best lunch spot in the area! And it's in the lobby of a Hampton Inn, who would have thought? The menu is extensive, service is quick and it's great value. The cheese, olive oil & bread that's complimentary sets the tone for what will prove... More
