The food is always consistent here! You can never go wrong with any of the pasta dishes or lamb and veal dishes.

We haven’t been there in a while and was glad we went back. COVID aware, plenty of space. The menu is a bit limited so check it out before you go to make sure there is something you like available!

Our meals were delicious, exactly what we expect when we come to Diane's. Our salads, beet and wedge were refreshing and quite good. Our entreés excellent. My brick chicken was perfectly cooked as was my partners duck dinner. And with no shame we devoured the mind blowing pecan pie and banana ice cream.
Our server and service was terific.

Here's the rub, When I come to dine at a restaurant such as Diane's I know I'm going to pay a good price and expect to do so with zero qualms.
When I'm seated down I expect the details to be looked after. I was disappointed to find badly spotted silverware. I tried to wipe them clean to no avail. All the silverware was in poor condition. We were brought seratted, wooden handled knives for our enteés (see photo) it's just unacceptable to me that at this level restaurant this would hit the table.
My partner's wine glass was also really a spotted mess too.
I should have called the server over and pointed these things out to her. I wasn't in the mood to have to school anyone.
These are the kind of details that matter.

A very good dining experience. I had short ribs and creamy mashed potatoes and the other diner had the tuna. Both were excellent.

Go to Dianes often. Always pleased with the service and food.
The dinner this particular night was very good. I loved the seafood avocado, the pasta carbonara was very good, but I think it was a different version. The duck which we order often was a smaller portion than usual. I would suggest more vegetables with the entrees. Love the pecan pie.
We will be back!

Food was delicious as always, came out hot, nicely platted and quickly. Felt “COVID” safe, though we did dine earlier on a Saturday evening. The outside dining looks attractive but cold evening so we ate upstairs. Will be back, worth 30 minute ride for us.

Unfortunately, the food was disappointing. We have been to Diane’s on several occasions; none recently, but thought the food had been steady. This time, however, the food was under seasoned. Service was attentive and the restaurant maintained safety precautions, but we were unhappy with the food.

Great food, great COVID protocols. Mains and small plates are pricey but not crazy BUT $16.00 a glass for house wine, which you are not told about bc there is no list and $12.00 for a small piece of pie, that is tasty but you could buy the whole pie for that, makes it. not worth it. It was $100 for 2 people for just drinks and desserts, not including our mains. The waiter should have recommended a bottle of wine and not ripped us off at $16.00 per glass for house wine.

We had a reservation but still ended up waiting 20 minutes for our table. They ran out of the appetizer and entrees that we wanted to order. It was a prix -fixed menu so very limited choices. Very pricey for what we got.

Food was very good as usual. Didn't appreciate getting put in the breakfast room next door instead of the main dining room even though there was clearly an available table there.

We went out dinner on one of the Saturday. I ordered the duck and my husband ordered the short ribs. The food was delicious. We also got the brownie for dessert and we like it. Unfortunately, the table across from us was extremely loud. I felt bad for the people who sat next to them. Other than that, we had a good time with the trattoria Diane.

Absolutely delicious! We came here for NYE and the pre fix menu had a lot of great options. The music was a little off - 9 Bob Marley songs in a row when I was expecting Sinatra - but we have a great time! Would recommend.

We liked the “New Years eve” special menu and food are excellent. Also services are good too. Just one thing that, the room was a dreary and sad for New Year’s Eve celebrations. However we still had a great food and beautiful time.
We definitely come back.
