Authentic

The food and service were authentic Italian. The house wine was good and the portions were quite large. IF you are in a hurry, though - it is rather laid back. When we were there it was not a busy time of day or season and it was leisurely.

I am Italian and I am picky about Italian Food. My wife and I have gone to La Famiglia on 3 previous occasions and considered it to be decent Italian food. Something has changed. They are moving this restaurant to a location east of where they are now, but it the new location is not ready yet. The service was... More

It's really hard to know how to rate La Famiglia. It is a nice comfortable, cozy Italian place. We were greeted and seated quickly. We ordered red and white house wine which was quite good. Our waiter seemed good initially being attentive and pleasant but read on. My wife chose a house salad and I had a Caesar. They were... More

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews - seems like two different restaurants. I seldom choose to eat Italian out but the food was very good and our server, Glenn, was excellent. My salmon was perfectly cooked - others in group thought their meals (seafood and veal) were delicious. Can't beat the wine at $3.00 per glass. Leave room... More

This was the place to be....at one time. The food is still good, but the quality and value has sort of slowed for some reason. Still a nice place to go. Much prefer this than any other Italian in Destin.

I do not understand why this restaurant is expanding because the value for money versus the quality is very questionable. We have always wanted to try this place and we finally decided to go after 5 years and we will never go back to any of their locations. The service was OK, not more than that, the wines are overpriced... More

Took two young marines here last Saturday night and was sorely disappointed. Food was average and for the price there were 4 lobster ravioli in a bowl of sauce. Really? Service wasn't that great either. Very old fashioned and out of date atmosphere and furniture. Didn't enjoy it at all.

My husband and I ate a late lunch here on Wed. He had the spaghetti and meatballs, and I had the manicotti. The food was excellent. The owner and his family were sitting right behind us and were enjoying a pizza. It looked so good, we decided to go back today and try the pizza. We had the one with... More

We enjoyed another wonderful dinner here. The service was great and our meals perfect. Too bad we don't live in the area so we could be regulars of La Famiglia.
