My best friend selected and booked my birthday dinner here and it was a memorable evening. Nice ambiance, good food and good service. The Seafood Risotto is very good, but you do have to order it in advance. Overall, a lovely dining experience.

A nice ambient. The first welcome bread was cold and not tasty at all. The bread basket looked less inviting. The starter (calamari and artichoke) was okay. Although, I could barely find the artichoke which was too much fried. The main course, Cobia, was pretty good. The best was the desert. The food is overpriced. This was my first visit.... More

I try to control my carbs, so eating Italian requires that the food be truly exceptional. The restaurant made pastas are to die for. But, their fish entrees are also wonderful.

We visited on 11/15/14 for dinner with friends. We had a 6:30 pm reservation - for me - a great time to show up for dinner on a Saturday night if you can pull it off. Impeccable service. Great food. The next time we hope to try the chef's table. We will be back! :-)

This location ALWAYS gets great reviews ... tonight, they were not up to that standard. I started with the grilled octopus. THE MOST tender I've ever had, but no grilled flavor. Then I had the special of pasta and king crab (after the server recommended that over the diver scallops). MAYBE there were three small pieces of crab ... and... More

First visit was wonderful but sat at a table with another couple. This time it was just the two of us and decided to sit at the chef's bar as we were interested in the entertainment in the kitchen. A whole other experience when you watch the care they take in plating and showing off their food. Despite a 30... More

Quite a surprise, I went with my car group last nite, we had about 20 people. The management, wait staff and food was exceptional. Small menu, but each dish everyone ordered was prepared perfectly.

Tony Rocchio started the restaurant in Plantation in 1974, We had moved to the area about four years prior. Glovanni moved the restaurant when his father retired. The food was very good then and it's very good today. The prices however have really increased. The facility is very nice, and the staff are very good. They make the bread and... More
