Great choice on our part. We were looking for an alternative to Turnpike options and this restaurant exceeded our expectations. Charming atmosphere, nice staff, and a wonderful selection of lunch options. Even our vegan travel companion was happy.

Portions were small compared to our previous visit as well as having my main meal being returned to be cooked a little longer. Overall it just seemed to be an off night but not enough that would keep us from visiting again.

The food was delicious! BYOB The live music was nice just a little too loud for the room but I will be back because the food was cooked to perfection.

What a little gem on Main St. in Hightstown! This was our fourth visit to this little restaurant that specializes in farm to table seasonal food. The meat is no hormones, the pasta is freshly made, the desserts freshly made. They do have some wines...More

Visited my brother in New Jersey and he took us to this restaurant. We had a table outside. Happy with a menu with not too many choices. Great that this restaurant uses produce from the area. Same as the lovely Chardonnay. Really loved the chocolate...More

Our Mission Statement By partnering with local growers, our mission is to secure the best, freshest, local, organic-when-possible, ingredients to cook for our customers. Our menu will change regularly to reflect what's best in each season. We have a simple menu for a reason. Instead of purchasing dried pasta, we start with flour and eggs to make our pasta from scratch. Instead of purchasing frozen gnocchi, we peel the potatoes to make our own, fresh, light-and-fluffy, gnocchi. Our chefs create beautiful dishes with flavor that can only come from a recent harvest. When we are unable to secure a local ingredient, we will communicate that to our customers. With the umbrella heading of a farm-to-table restaurant, our chefs are free to create dishes that cross into different ethnic cuisines. However, the majority of our meals are influenced by Italian and American tastes. To celebrate the local community, we also host live music, art exhibitions and meet-the-farmer events. Stop in and say hello!
