My family took me here for a birthday celebration. The entire family from 6 weeks up to the grandparents were awed by their tasty dinners, delicious wines and great tapas. Gloria made our celebration even better with complimentary fried plantains. Could not have asked for a better birthday dinner!

Celebrating dad's 71st birthday and we're always looking for something different and unique since we're not a picky family when it comes to doing one of our favorite things....eating! I'm shocked we hadn't discovered it sooner since we've lived here since the mid 90's, but it's a hidden gem that we'll definitely be back whether it's a celebration or just... More

We've been here several times, and always love the food. Everything is fresh, and there are usually very good specials which we order. The service can be anywhere from decent to excellent, depending on how crowded the restaurant is. It is probably our favorite restaurant in Ft. Myers; we come from the NY City suburbs, and this is worthy of... More

I lived in Italy for 7 years so I am really picky about Italian food. Americans tend to really mess up European food. I took my daughter there for lunch, we both ordered small pizza's, Mine was Italian sausage and pepperoni, the meat was absolutely fantastic, fresh and comparable to the pizza's I use to get in Italy. Not to... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. Generally, the food and service are good. We recently took friends there for dinner and were very disappointed. Our server asked that we place our entire order, including wine, all at once. After we ordered, it took over 30 minutes to get our appetizer than almost that long again for our salad.... More

On a recommendation from a big fan, we made our first visit to this relatively obscure eatery in an equally obscure strip mall on Route 41. The person who recommended Trattoria went so far as to say it was his favorite venue… period. So, we were built up for a great experience. We arrived about 7pm on a Friday without... More

This Cafe came highly recommended as excellent and varied European Food. It is clearly a locals cafe and our Hostess greeted many customers by name.The decor is OK and perhaps fitting for a cafe but fairly sterile for our taste. Gloria herself is an outgoing warm and friendly hostess. I ordered a glass of Pierre Henri Pinot Noir which was... More

I wanted to like this restaurant, from the descriptions posted here, but we had a very disappointing experience. The server was just barely civil, bordering on rude, really. He took a very long time to take our order, and then said, "well, that's why I brought you water in the meantime, because we are crowded," as if water were a... More

This restaurant is one block off of US 41. We lived here for a number of years, and just found this place last year. Their seafood and pasta dishes are always quite tasteful. They usually have a fish of the day that can be ordered with four different sauces. The wine list is quite good with middle of the road... More
