We live in emerald isle and We are in love with this restaurant. The food is always top notch and the service is good. Everything is very fresh. Busy during the tourist season, so come early (5) or late (8:30). Busy on the weekends during the off season. EXCELLENT daily specials. All homemade desserts (owner is a trained pastry chef) from NY. Staff is freindly. Menu is diverse - you could eat here every day of the week and not get bored. People are still discovering this place. Kids menu and awesome wine list. If you live here or are coming to visit, you must try the Fairway. Its only two minutes from the EI bridge.
Pros: awesome food-great italian specialties
Cons: a very short drive off the island - 65 seat restaurant- call ahead with big groups
