I hesitate to post this as there are those who seem not to like this place,but we have had some excellent meals, and again last night, and we really want this place to succeed. The owner/chef is very nice and the food is excellent. The servers are very knowledgable, friendly and efficient. Last night we had an appetizer of stuffed, deep fried squash blossoms, served over polenta with a tomato sauce. They were so delicious. Stuffed with fontina cheese, delicate blossoms deliciously deep fried and not greasy. Cheesy polenta and sorrounded by a tasty ring of tomato sauce. For entree I had a delicious perfectly cooked medium rare sirloin with tiny crispy red potatoes and broccoli rabe. DC had nicely prepared diver scallops on a lemony risotto with spinach that he said was excellent. Panna cotta with fresh berries was very refreshing.
