What People are Saying

“A Fave for Italian”

This food equals my Italian mother – in – law’s cooking!!! Highly recommend the Pasta Fagioli soup. I get the bowl for my meal! Yum!! Husband loves the Bolognese! Just super everything. Becoming our favorite Italian place. Price is reasonable too. Service always great!!”

“Different and Divine”

“Went to W+W Italian Kitchen last night and were very happy we did. The menu was a little different but in a good way. I advise checking the menu online because if you wait until you get there you’ll have trouble deciding what to order. I already know what I’m getting on my next visit. If you are fussy about your Italian food as I am, you will be 100% satisfied when you visit this beautiful little gem.”

“Absolute Best Place”

Honestly this is the absolute best place we have found for Italian food. Prices are reasonable, food is fantastic. Milton was our waiter on several visits. Try the house red wine, is really good !

“Our Favorite Place”

I highly recommend Wheat + Water. The food, staff and the atmosphere are superb! It has become our favorite place to go whether for a drink and an appetizer at the bar or dinner! I love too many of their dishes to name them all. Their salads are fresh, crisp and cold. The bread is outstanding! You absolutely can’t go wrong dining at Wheat + Water! Trust me. There are only a handful of restaurants I would categorize as “fine dining” and they are not located in our backyard. This one is and we feel very lucky!
