Mike N' Dangelo's Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria welcomes guests with a spread of more than 90 menu items.

Having dinner at The Estate on Coffee Creek is sort of like having a lovely meal at a friends' place—that is, if your friends are a gourmet chef and a sommelier and they live in a beautiful 170-year-old red-brick Italianate house. Inside the house, a different dining table, which seats up to six guests, is set up in each room; guests purchase tickets in advance to reserve one of these tables. Upon arrival, they begin working through one of Chef Nicholas Kustala's multicourse seasonal tasting menus, which can be prepared for both carnivores and vegetarians. If guests so choose, Giovanna, Nicholas's wife and the house sommelier, can pair meals with wine, often including varietals plucked from the area's renowned boutique wineries.
