new place on rte 83 in ellington with 10 tables. have been twice and loved both visits. italian based menu with wonderful apps: aged provolone and eggplant caponata where wonderful. the mussles and clams had a very different, appealing broth. menu was different both times we visited [a week apart -- it was that good.

a few of the entrees we tasted:
short ribs with blue cheese potato gratin/papparadelle with roasted mushrooms and braised beef/roasted sea bass with artichokes/rotini with homemade sausage and peas/sea scallops

and the warm bread -- made on the premises -- rosemary bread sticks/parmesan rolls/sunflower wheat - the waitress comes around with the basket.

it's out of the way, but worth the visit.
