Splash, its on the water in Westport.

HELP!!! need high quality suggestion Westport, Stamford, New Canaan area open on Memorial Day

Look into Splash in Wesport. It is at the Longshore Inn...on the water. Probably will be open for lunch on Memorial Day.. There is not much for high end on the water here in Fairfield County, but I think you will be pleased with Splash.

Top Pizza in Capital Region?

Has anyone tried JG Roman Villa in Rotterdam? Great sicilan style pizza. No slices though, you have to order a whole pie.

Best Restaurants in Albany, NY

What are some of the top restaurants? Back in the area after a long stint away. Thank you!!

Schenectady's Little Italy

I was just at Perreca's bakery and had the greens and beans soup. WOW..Possibly the best soup Ive ever eaten. Very hearty. It also has pork and italian sausage in it. Accompanied by a good chunk of Perreca's bread which I topped with the soup...MMMM... I also bought a slice of tomato pie (delicious) as well as a huge chocolate cupcake with vanilla frosting. Cant wait to try!!!

Pizza in Miami

Moved here 3 months ago from NY and I am shocked at the pizza quality here. I live in downtown. Ive tried Mama Caruso's, Archies, Pizza Rustico (totally overrated "gourmet style" pizza, Casola's)...HELP!! Have not tried Andiamo or Miami Best yet...Are they worth a shot?

Gabbiano vs Il Mulino

You can view ll Gabbiano's menu at However, I believe you have to have a membership. I think the pasta dishes are very reasonable... $20+ range..its the steaks/fish that are more expensive..Great wine selection too..

Gabbiano vs Il Mulino

I actually live in the building that II Gabbiano is in. I had dinner there on thursday night for the first time.

First let me say that the service is 5 stars. There are about 3-4 servers at your beckon call. Awesome. We sat, immediately they brought over bruschetta and a huge block of delicious, straight from Italy parmesan cheese. They cut out a piece out of the block for you.

Then came sauteed or fried garlic seasoned zucchini. Oh..and bread too! This was all before we ordered. We shared a baked shrimp scampi appetizer (3 jumbo shrimp..excellent).. My boyfriend had the scampi frutti di mare risotto which was the best ive ever had (and Im Italian). I had a split..1/2 seafood ravioli and 1/2 porcini ravioli. This was very heavy, but delicious.

I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is excellent, the views are amazing (we sat outside facing Biscayne Bay) and the food is wonderful..Great selection on the menu. Veal, Fish, a bunch of risottos to choose from, pasta, meat, etc. Great wine selection too.
