Excellent!!!

We dined at the original site in Destin. Don't be put off by exterior appearance - once you walk inside and are greeted, the experience just keeps getting better! The food was wonderfully authentic! We will definitely stop in on our next visit! (They will be relocating to the old Hard Rock Cafe... read more

Our waiter was so rude and unprofessional, treated us all like we were stupid. SMALL portions for a ridiculous price. My fettuccini Alfredo tasted like my usual microwave Lean Cuisine I eat at home. They charged for more than one small loaf of bread and oil. I will never be back.

This is the worst Italian food we have ever tried to eat. The spaghetti sauce tasted like tomato paste right out of the can. This place is very expensive and the portions were so small that all 7 of us went to another restaurant after we left to get more to eat!! The meatballs were uneatable as well as the... More

My family and I went to what we thought would be the perfect restaurant to get some great Italian food. How were we wrong? When we came in we had to ask someone to seat us. They sat us without any menus. After 15 minutes we stop a waistress and told her we had not received any service. She didn't... More

This is BY FAR the best Italian restaurant I've been to. Their menu has a huge variety and there is absolutely nothing you can't go wrong with. I had thought my hometown had pretty good Italian restaurants but now I'd consider them all average. Will definitely be back this summer!

We loved this totally authentic Italian food with emerald views and a salty breeze. Fantastic perfect fresh dough thin crust pizza. Lovely waitress and amazingly doable prices for the location.

Worst service of any restaurant ever! Arrived to an almost empty dining room with family. We ordered some appetizers which came in 15 minutes. Our waitress left without providing napkins or silverware, so we took silverware from another table. While eating our appetizers, several other tables were seated. After very long wait we asked another staff member to find our... More

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
