I hear Ristorante Castello is moving into the Alison 2 space...

to ilovesummer, i mentioned your statement, last evening, to waitress. She said at the beginning they were sort of sticking to your statement, but it wasn't a rule now. However, in the middle of our discussion, a waiter butted in and said that when it's busy, on weekends, they would rather not serve apps as entrees. I did not understand that AT ALL. But we had a wonderful meal again. The 2 women that I was with, had never been there before, and really loved their meals.

I'm sorry you had that experience, although ours was the complete opposite. I also like ordering apps for entrees. I had a salad, and all of their pasta dishes can be served app. size. I had the gnocchis in a pink sauce. My husband had a bronzino in a salt encrusted shell. It was expertly broken open, and filet, table side. Our entire meal was wonderful. I hope you try it again.

Blue Bell - Domenico's out... new resto opening 10/1 in old Blue Horse Inn space

The food was good, price was moderate. However, since we were so aggravated by the time it arrived, it was not worth it. We ordered a $45 bottle of wine. The waitress wrote the entire name on pad. 20 min. later, another person came over and said..Are you sure you want this bottle, it's $45? And then it took another 15min for it to arrive.

I wrote a review under "Chef Salvatore". We have eaten at restaurants many (!!) times and this was our worst experience. Hubby (usually a very patient man), was so aggravated, he was about to walk out. If you look under Zagat's review site, you'll see other reviews, as well. Chef Salvatore seems to be more interested in his upcoming TV show, and his importing business. And his manager and waitstaff are AWFUL!!!!

Chef Salvatore in Blue Bell - Menu

We went there last night. The worst experience!! It took 1/2 hour for our bottle of wine to arrive. We both ordered salads that did not require any cooking. They took 45 min. come. Although our entrees were good, they took another 45 min. to arrive. The waitstaff was sooo unorganized. The next table came in the same time that we did. By the time we were leaving, they still had not gotten their entrees, they decided to leave. All of the people that were in the same room, decided they would not return. The manager was no help, at all. Where was the chef/owner? He was not on premises.

Dog friendly in the Kennebunks

I didn't mean inside, sorry if I mislead. But some restaurants with outside seating, allow dogs.

More restaurant closings in Blue Bell/Center Square area

They have a very nice wine list. Toto, the owner, said he will be adding more as time goes on.

We've been there twice. Most of their menu consists of "small plates". Everything we tried, we really liked. It is done in all white and airy...Very nice. Their wine list is very good, and growing.
