Everything was just fine until the end of the meal when we discovered the my husband's coffee cup was DIRTY. Old coffee ring around the middle of the cup! When we shared this with our server, she said, "Sorry, would you like me to bring you another up?" There was no offer to take the price of the coffee off of our bill or another other type of compensation. When he said, "No, thank you." She just put the bill on the table and left. A very nice experience was ruined by this last impression. Food was fantastic though!

Dear Melissa, We are so sorry that your experience was anything less than amazing. We apologize that our service staff did not remove your coffee from the bill, as it should have been. We do ensure that our cups are hand polished with every cup of coffee that is poured, but some can occasionally get missed. I would like to speak with you via email so please email me at the address provided so we can remedy this situation. Look forward to hearing from you. All the best, The Italian Farmhouse

We had a Father’s Day/Birthday celebration with a party of 9 ( including a toddler and baby). We had a great table and our server was awesome and so attentive with such a large party that included kids. Never flustered , always on it. Menu and kids menu were great and our food was yummy. Will definitely be back.

A new favourite restaurant, we were greeted quickly and enthusiastically, seated right away at a table with a view of the trees and deer in the back yard (which we did not eat). Our server was attentive but not intrusive, all the food was excellent which included calamari, spaghetti and meat balls for my date and I had the lamb shank. Wine was too expensive but you could say that about most any establishment - it was very good and complimented our meal. Great experience!

It was a lovely experience. Beautiful setting and good service. We were a table of 8. Most of the food was great. Pasta was very good. Only two of all our orders were average - watermelon salad was weak/tasteless and pork chop was tough. People in group said they would not recommend those. Otherwise everything was very tasty! We would totally go back.

Dinner on the patio....finally!! We have had many awesome meals here, but Tuesday's was probably the best. Maybe it was just the fact that we could finally eat outdoors, but the Arctic Char was outstanding.

This was our first night out as a couple, even though we had been dating for a few months.
We were on a staycaion and absolutley fell in love with this place.
So cute, so delicious and so chill.
We got pasta and pizza-classic for an Italian place! And it did not disappoint! We are the leftover pizza the following night and the pasta right after. Drinks during the meal weee great.
The staff is greatly commendable, as they were kind and accommodating.

Something has happened to this kitchen...
Came here years ago and we were impressed with the culinary standard of the dishes. Now....not so much.
Very uninspired dishes : ridiculously disjoined ingredients, poor combinations, and lousy cooking.
Too bad...they have a great location. But their dishes need a serious overhaul.
