This place is an absolute gem. It was difficult to choose just one item, so we bought several: blueberry and strawberry muffins, focaccia, mixed berry pie, and a cannoli. Everything was top-quality, very fresh, and generously sized. The staff was also friendly and accommodating. Definitely visiting again the next time I’m in town!

Bohemian Pizza

Reviewed By 4Steve2014

I am a little disappointed with Bohemian Pizza since it's reconstruction. They did a nice job recreating the atmosphere inside, but they changed the pizza to a thinner crust which I don't like as much. The Italian Stallion pizza used to be my favorite pizza in the world, with nice big slices of fresh garlic, fresh green basil leaves delicious pepperoni and sausage. Then they stopped slicing the garlic and started mincing the garlic which really changed the flavor. When I asked about it the first time I got it like that they said "Oh we sropped doing that years ago" just NOT true, and there was no offer of "sure we could do that for you", or any semblance of appreciation for a years long loyal customer who had previously provide free TV advertising for them. I went for dinner last night and somebody ordered the Italian Stallion and I looked at it and remembered the good old days when it was the best pizza I ever tasted. So I ordered the burrito with blackened shrimp and was disappointed again. No hint of lime as advertised and so sign of blackening whatsoever on the shrimp. Sorry Bohemian, my favorite pizza now is just down the road at Bantam Pizza. Still like your Bohemian chic decor but the food is more important...and pleasing the customer should be too.

Mockingbird Kitchen & Bar

Reviewed By Gammie8

This restaurant has come a long way since its early days. The lively vibe and good bar scene were always there, but the food could be uneven, except for the ever-present and excellent oysters. Now the food shines. Oysters, of course, but also the delicious home made peasant bread, and terrific burgers with fries, and a succulent, perfectly cooked Berkshire pork chop. The plate presentation is as pleasing as the taste of the food. Lots of good menu choices, including vegetarian dishes. Our server Amanda was very pleasant and efficient too. We watched as she looked after the whole room and didn't miss a beat! The bar is great, lots of intriguingly named cocktails which are very tasty. Wine by the glass is a good pour.

Ollie's Pizza

Reviewed By BigDaddyDave55138

Ollie’s Pizza was our choice for a casual dinner. It occupies the ground floor of a building that was built in 1830. While the menu included entrees such as Spaghetti and Meatballs, Eggplant Parmesan and Chicken Alfredo, we were looking for something more ‘casual’. No burgers, wraps or sandwiches either. The choice was easy...after all “Pizza” is in this restaurant’s name!The dining area at Ollie's is about as casual as one could hope for…pretty basic décor but with booths. But then we noticed artwork all along the walls. The paintings were the work local artists...colorful whimsical art are reminiscent of Grandma Moses’s paintings. They were cheerful, complex and just happy!Our dinner was a large sausage and pepperoni pizza. ($18.00) The ingredients were above average and It was a very good pizza. Wwe…or rather I…ate the whole thing!

This was a default choice for dinner after we found our first choice was closed. A local couple on the street recommended @ The Corner and called it "consistent". We aren't sure what that meant unless it was consistently bad because our entrees were uninspired and tasteless. Service was pleasant and we were seated early in the evening without reservations.

Patty's Restaurant

Reviewed By Al-Sue-Maine

We ate there while in town on business. It's a little ways out of Litchfield, but worth the trip. They only take cash, so be prepared. The food is great, with lots of breakfast options. Friendly, professional staff. Substitutions aren't a problem; they're very accommodating. Lots of food. We'll go back.

Ararthusa is a fine dining restaurant with fine preparation and impeccable service and ambience.From varied appetizers and fine wine selection, to entrees that include at least two vegetarian choices, everything was wonderful and prepared and plated to perfection.The deserts couldn’t be better, and all in all this is about the best dining in all of Connecticut - without par in the state.

The Village is a classic new England pub restaurant which offers local craft beers and locally grown farm to table produce when available seasonally. The dining room side is quieter with wooden booths whereas the pub side is bit more lively as casual. The

Reviewed By aaronds

Positioned right off the charming, historic, Litchfield green; the location could not be better... although parking can be a challenge. Also, the tourist crowd can feel a little pretentious to some. The bar service is professional and prompt. The Oyster tacos were a clever idea and are well seasoned but overly oily and lacking crunch. The buffalo chicken wrap was flavorful and balanced (not too spicy) but dripping wet. All the portions were very generous. The cocktails are also generously poured and well crafted. At lunch, go for an elevated selection of american bar food served in a warm atmosphere at a reasonable price and expect to have left-overs.

Reviewed By KathieNc

The only word for our recent lunch here is boring. Everything was perfunctory from the bloody mary I had to the service. the drink had no zing and its only garnish was a little lime in the bottom of the glass. Our waiter was uninterested and again perfunctory. He did not smile, at us or anyone else in the room, the entire time we were there. He added nothing to our experience, not even the pro forma question of how the food was. The shrimp in my shrimp scampi was tough but I will say the sauce on the pasta was wonderful. so we went there for a special time but I can see why the restaurant was 1/2 full while all the other places in town seemed bustling.
