Came here after dinner and had a lovely selection of desserts! First....probably the best cappuccino I have EVER had. Tremendous. We had a slice of the coconut cake and the butterscotch crumble cake that was so outstanding I wanted to take several home. Really great. I highly recommend coming here!!!!

My partner and I pulled into the plaza to check directions and Such A Bagel immediately caught our eye. We cannot pass up bagels. Very nice selection. I will say the sandwich descriptions had great catchy names but the font and color used on the board for the descriptions was extremely hard to read. We felt like we had to squint in order to decide. We later saw menus so I guess that would have solved that problem. Our server was nice. I loved their selection of coffees. My partner wanted to be boring and go with an iced pecan. If you were a bit more adventurous they had some great selections on their list. We ended up getting a mixed berry bagel with butter and one of their sandwiches that had warm roast beef. We asked for it without the horseradish spread and it was pretty bland. It could have used a kick. Nice price for all that food and we were able to sit at a table and enjoy the atmosphere. If we're ever in the area again, we'd go back.

We met some clients here for dinner and were not disappointed. Several dining rooms and the noise level was conversation friendly. I started with a special appetizer -- mushrooms stuffed with seafood. It came with four, good-sized mushroom caps. Very tasty. My entree choice was the vitello boconcinni -- veal medallions stuffed with mozarella cheese and proscuitto, with mushrooms. I love all of these ingredients and was not disappointed. The portions are not small. Service was friendly and just attentive enough.

Los Andes

Reviewed By ddoran - boston

Our waitress, the Peruvian Camille, advised us to try their special version that night of their Causa Limena which added crab and other unusual things. This was the first plate that was even better than their Cervice Classico. We shared the entree sized Cerviche with a Churasco al Gaucho. For wine, Ali advised us to try their Chilean Calypra Chardonnay..which was a spectacular match for our meal. We had coffee and our tres leches for dessert. Thanks to Diego Curi for seating us, Andrea Curi for her gracious welcome, and my apology to Stephanie for allowing me to switch tables so I could practice my Dominican Spanish. We are eating all of our leftovers for a home dinner tonight.

This place is handy for us, however, I have become disenchanted with some of the quality! I think the first thing that started me thinking that, was was when I noticed that the Bread for Sandwiches seemed less appetizing, too dry and tasteless!

I love a nice Italian Cold Cut Sandwich, but if the Bread doesn't taste good to you, it's not an option!

Posillipo Restaurant

Reviewed By Loretta P

What a great find in an unassuming neighborhood space!!! Posillipo has great food and a great staff. We sampled the cold antipasto and three of the Saturday night specials-Salmone dello Chef, capellini Golfo and the Rack of Lamb and all were wonderful! There are very reasonably priced wines and just a great vibe surrounding the excellent food. From the love story of the owners to the love story of the food, you too will fall in love with Posillipo and just for fun, you'll think you went back in time!

Reviewed By Blossom055 - Lincoln, Rhode Island

We been dining at Chelo's for more than 40 years and have never been disappointed! Tonight was no exception, but this location has been recently renovated and the booth seating was extremely uncomfortable!!! I had to sit sideways so I could eat!!! Subsequently, my leg went numb! Even though the food was great, it was one of my worst dining experiences!!!! Poor design!!!!
Will request a table, not a booth next visit.
