Decent Italian dinner

Their garlic bread gets five stars. Order it! You will not regret it! I ordered the Risotto Da Vinci and my husband ordered the Linguini Di Mare. They definitely did not skimp out on the seafood on either dishes. My husband likes his linguini. Unfortunately, my risotto was on the salty side and I... read more

Great location, some of the staff could act a little nicer, or actually have a smile on their face. Enjoyed our lunch, food came out quick, drinks were good. I recommend it and we'll probably be back. Tip - any more south down A1A and you end up in the very touristic area.

We went for breakfast. Lovely atmosphere, lovely view. Pricey food that was tasty. Service, very slow. Had to wait 15 minutes to get the waiter's attention for the check.

One star for the cocktail, well made, and an enticing beach view setting. Food was a different matter. Ordered a grilled Mahi sandwich (about $16) but asked that the lettuce and tomato be substituted with grilled vegetables which were available on several other items. Was asked what I wanted, to which I said whatever you have eg peppers or onions... More

We had an outside seat looking at the beach. Food was delicious lots of seafood. There's an inside bar that's huge. Didn't like the cappuccino or coffee the roast is too strong. My friends liked the wine choices though.

Great location, right by the beach and great food. Unfortunately once our order was taken, service went downhill from there.

This is a lovely cafe with fresh ingredients, excellent service, and reasonable prices. It's hard to believe it's so close to Las Olas, as it doesn't have a touristy feel at all. We ate there for breakfast and lunch, and will be heading back the next time we're in Fort Lauderdale. Highly recommend!
