Reserved a table for 12 but only 8 showed up for the party. Waitress was RUDE. My order was not hot but not room temp either. The pizza was cold like it was sitting out for a while. Calamari was cold too. Waitress rolled her eyes every time we called her over. Some people in my party had to remind... More

Ordered several pizzas, calzone and bread rolls for takeout at the condo, everything was very good and took less than half hour before it was ready. Good pizza, good calzone, will try it again.

Excellent food and service. We had. Three different pizzas, spaghetti bolognese, fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti marinara and all were excellent. The garlic knots were out of this world. This will become one of our annual Destin restaurants.

The dining area is a bit on the small size, so I would highly recommend making reservations. We ordered the house specialty as an appetizer -- the homemade garlic knots... More
