We had lunch last week and dinner last night at Loretta's, and we will be eating at this restaurant again and again. The food, service and everything was wonderful.

I love Italian food!!! And this chef does everything right and nothing like the usual fare that one expects. For dinner I had one of the specials, a seafood dish with scallops, mussels, lobster and shrimp on linguini with a pink pesto sauce. The seafood was so fresh and tender, the sauce so special. My husband had a chicken dish with sun dried tomatoes and an amazing mushroom sauce that was truly yummy.

Our lunch was terrific. I had linguine with a tangy red clam sauce that had a bit of a bite and lots of garlic. My friend had a Caesar salad with chicken strips, her Caesar salad is special... not mayonnaise based, but fresh garlicy and different, the chicken crispy are made to order they said, not frozen strips.

They also have a lite fare dinner menu, low cost, that I'm trying next time we go.

I spoke with Linda, who brought us to our table, she co-owns this restaurant with the chef Loretta. She said that only Loretta cooks, if she cannot cook for some reason, they would close for the day instead of having someone else cook. I am impressed by this, so many restaurants have whomever cook their food so to know that here is chef owned and only the chef cooks, WOW! Also the portions are huge, I brought home leftovers for the next day. We had the Spedino for an appetizer and if you go... you have to try this! And we had and amazing homemade dessert, Linda's delight, a profiterole with ice cream and dark chocolate sauce, OH YUMMMMMMMM. Enjoy.

I recently ate dinner at Loretta's and was definately satifsied! The atmosphere was clean and homey where one could feel comfortable a little dressed up or more casual. The service was friendly and professional. The entree I ordered was a linguine with shrimp in an orange/champagne sauce and it was great! The combination of flavors was exotic and savory! The meal started with homemade rolls (with fresh garlic and olive oil for dipping) and a green salad, which were equally delicious. I will definately visit Loretta's again soon!!!
