This place is excellent! Wonderful, thoughtfully prepared food. Good portions and fun accompaniments. I had the squash ravioli and my companions all had the grilled salmon. Everyone loved their food. Service was good and I even enjoyed the local wine. Will definitely go back next time I’m in Utica. More
