Restaurant Review


DeAnna's Restaurant is a popular favorite with the locals offering reasonably priced homemade pasta dishes with fresh, local ingredients.


The decor is eclectic and cozy with a Greenwich Village vibe. It's an excellent place for a date or getting together with family or friends.


The interior of this 30 seat restaurant gives off a warm ambiance with soothing soft candlelight lighting, terra cotta-colored walls, and black and white photographs adorning the walls.


The featured attraction is a cozy, three-sided bar, with a giant peacock hanging above it and cozy red lamps at the corner. It's tended to by Armand, the restaurant's friendly and efficient bartender.


Chef/proprietor Dianna Paterra oversees the preparation of simply prepared dishes using locally grown organic greens and produce whenever possible. The pasta is made daily from semolina and durham flour.


While there are some bright spots to the menu, there are many shortcomings that prevent the food from achieving a higher rating. The tomato sauce comes off a bit bland.


DeAnna's has a Locals night on Tuesdays and Wednesdays are a popular attraction offering an attractively priced 3 course prixe fixe menu.


Deanna's Restaurant service is friendly and courteous.


During the warmer summer months they offer al fresco dining with one of the seating areas covered with a canvas canopy, and the other dining area further back offers open air seating scattered amongst a water fountain and a few herb garden plantings.


On site parking is available.
