Restaurant Review

Focacceria Ristorante is a small high-end restaurant, popular with locals who come to enjoy well prepared homemade Italian food in a cozy setting.

Located in an historic circa 1800's Colonial home, while the restaurant has been renovated, many of the original features have been maintained including the old-fashioned hand crank doorbell.

The four dining areas are spread on two floors, done up with soft earth walls, wooden floors, and tables set with white linen. The walls have pictures of life in the 1800's.

They are popular with patrons who enjoy Al-Fresco Dining. It is open rain or shine in a covered patio featuring heaters and fire pits! Be forewarned, there is high demand for outside dining, reserve early.

Owned by two brothers, Cheech and Nick, who are also outstanding hosts --- very welcoming and can be often seen walking the dining area to greet patrons.

The food is well prepared using fresh seasonal ingredients. The pasta, bread and deserts are made from scratch every morning.

While they do not have a kid’s menu, they are family friendly and are eager to prepare a special child's dish.

Focacceria Ristorante is open six days/week.

Lunch, Tuesday – Friday 11:30am - 3:00pm
Dinner, Tuesday - Saturday, 5:00pm - 10:00pm, & Sunday 4:00pm - 9:00pm
