After passing by this place a few times we finally went there for dinner this evening. We arrived shortly before 5 and were quickly seated. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficiently gave us a rundown of their specials and drinks. Our party of 3 ended up ordering Chicken Parmesan, Linguini with clam sauce and Chicken Toscana. While waiting we... More

Since this is off season in SWFL, we receive a lot of species offers in the form of coupons. We decided to try this restaurant which was close to home. They open for dinner at 4:30 and we arrived at 5 PM. The coupon was for 1/2 off an entree of equal or lesser value with the purchase of 2... More

Ordered small pizza on the blind and came out in a personal pan pizza box....4 slices for $11.00 REALLY?! Sausage was strong and very overpowering. 2 five ounce glasses of house wine measured precisely.....no bar to sit at.......total bill $25.00. Definitely not NY style! Locals that will not return.

Joe has the recipes down. His fish dishes along with his nightly specials are always great. Try the grouper. Don't want pasta, ask for steamed veggies. Nice wine selection at fair prices. Services is excellent too. We usually sit with a server by the name of Elvis, great server and you can certainly have some fun bantering with him. Reservation... More

We`ve been here before and always go back every year in April. This restaurant really knows how to serve up some great Italian food. The tomato and mozzarella salad is delicious and they make the cheese in house. Everything is very fresh and cooked to order. In prime season - you want to make a reservation for dinner as this...

The food is really good at reasonable prices. We have found the service fast and attentive every time. They have nightly specials that will knock your socks off especially the pork occobuco(sp?) The pizza is great as well .

The staff were very nice and said that was the best they could do. Selection and size of many dishes are a plus and the service was great. Most... More
