First off, the staff and the decor get an A+. Very friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. This is a real waitstaff, not a bunch of highschool kids slinging food. The decor is very warm and pleasant. It fits in perfectly with an Italian restaurant. Portions are huge. The food is good, not great. I really wanted to like... More

What a great place to spend an evening! The owners are terrific! Giovanni our waiter was absolutely delightful and helpful. Our dinner more than met our expectations and the wine did not miss a beat. Will visit again soon.

appetizers were calamari and mussels in white wine sauce. A red sauce option was available. Each was modest in price at about $9. The calamari were rings only which usually is more popular but I'll eat the other, with no problem. No matter, these rings only were rubbery to the point a full half plate went uneaten. The mussels were... More

OUTSTANDING!! Had Chilean Sea Bass as the evening special. Wow that was soooo good! Have had this dish before at the four Seasons in Philadelphia and I think it was better here. The friendly staff was most helpful and attentive. Darren our waiter is the one to ask for.. Hope to come again on my next visit to Cape Coral.

Chef owned restaurant - very friendly, great service, nice sit-down bar. The menu has a lot of northern Italian dishes that are very good. Portions are very large - you will be taking some home. Lasagne very meaty and cheesy. Chicken Ariani outstanding. Daily specials including course dinners with wine and dessert. Ambiance very nice - some small areas off... More
