"This was our first dining experience at Il Poggiolo and it was terrible. Two other couples joined us as one of them recommended the restaurant as its their favorite in the area. The burrata appetizer was very good however the cocktails and main course was unsatisfactory. My old fashioned was just bourbon on the rocks with a cherry and the lamb special I ordered was very tough and difficult to chew. I asked our server which temp he recommended and he said medium. I wish I would have ordered it medium-rare as it felt as if I was chewing shoe leather. With all of the great restaurants in the area we will not be returning any time soon."

"The "feel" of the restaurant is great! high ceilings, beautiful bar, nice music. And the food delivered as well as the service. I had the Cioppino and would say it was easily one of the best I've ever had. I can't wait to return and try other wonderful items on the menu. Plus the sea salt caramel gelato is HEAVENLY."
