Inside or outside seating. A very extensive menu with price range to suit any budget. Quality and quantity of food items is very good.

We sat on the Terrance looking at Count Basie Square danced with the locals. Looking at the yachts was very nice

Awesome atmosphere. Get there before 6 pm-they offer an early bird menu with affordable prices. No complaints.

From the grumpy non speaking waiters and male owner to the badly cooked stuck together pasta in disgusting sauces that looked congealed. Dont waste your money! I have never eaten such bad Italian food. Capuccinos looks much nicer.

The food was excellent. The owner and his wife were in the dining room talking to the customers and were very helpful in telling about the different dishes.

The staff were lovely,... More

I was so upset after eating at this restaurant. My daughter and ate at this restaurant on our trip to Freeport. When we went to put more money on the credit card for a tip the waitress told us not to. She said that the owner takes the extra that you give them.

Who doesn't love Italian food? We took friends here each week of our stay and thoroughly enjoyed the pasta and wine with our early bird dinners.
