Had to laugh cause this restaurant has been known for being so unfriendly. Eveyone I know who has been there talks about it. They have great food but you have to go with a thick skin. Enjoy the food but be prepared to be treated like crap. Similar to soup Nazi. As long as you behave and don't ask or do anything out of the usual you may get by without any mishap or a side of attitude.
I have come here many times and the food has always been top shelf. The restaurant is a bit small and can not accomodate large crowds but that intimate atmosphere is what makes it desireable, The food is always delicious and worth the wait. My number 1 Italian restaurant in Dutchess County when I want to go out for a nice dinner.
Went there for the first time for my Birthday Saturday night. Staff and Food were great. Met the owner Heather she went out of her way to accommodate my family. I cant say enough good things about the place. We are going back for Mothers Day. Go you wont be disappointed.
