booked here for a change up and Italian food. It was okay and maybe we just ordered the wrong entrees but sauces were off...worst was a salad that had to be sent back due to being absolutely swimming in dressing. The server took it...then came back and asked if we wanted to take it with us? Not sure why if... More

The reviews for this restaurant were great so we thought we would try it. WOW!! double wow!!! We loved it. From the homemade gnocchi to the mahi mahi and ending with the tart, the meal was perfect! The service was excellent and Ilio was a doll. Run don't walk to this restaurant.

Best steak and mushroom risotto I have ever tasted. The zuppa di mare was excellent. My fiancé had linguini di mare and thought it was excellent also. The portions were plenty!

Found this one by accident. It was a late lunch, we did not order much since we already have a big dinner planned. Everything came out delicious, Zuppa Di Mare Seafood Soup is simply the best soup I've had. We all liked their food so much that we decided to visit again on the last day of our vacation, unfortunately... More

The chef is Italian and the food is proof! Excellent service and dinner in the courtyard all combined to make this a perfect evening.

I've never had a better experience in a restaurant. The location is perfect. The services is perfect. The food is perfect. The ambient is perfect. Price is affordable. If you are looking for the perfect WOW romantic place, this is it! I suggest dining in the outside, even more romantic! Definitely not my last time dining here. Bon appetit !!!

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The pasta was perfect, their marinara sauce is perfect. My husband had a variation of Fettucini Alfredo Primavera. Huge portions, you may want to share an entree. Good wines and desserts.

The appetizers, wines and desserts are very good here. What was not so great were the main courses. If you are going to spend $100 per person for fine dining it should be memorable. This was mediocre. Service was excellent, fast and friendly. The main courses missed the mark. 3 of 6 in our group did not eat more that... More

We were not impressed with this place. While the atmosphere in the restaurant was nice and the wait staff were nice, the Italian food was so-so and a bit pricey for our taste.
