I would like to give a better rating but the food and policies here are odd. First, a $20-25 entree with no salad included. Really? Then, I always order a marsala as a benchmark to compare with other Italian restaurants. This was the oddest marsala I've ever had. First, there was only one small chicken breast ($20), and a bit...

We eat here often and find the staff friendly and food excellent. Brunch only weekend menu is incredible and weekday evening menu exceptional. They have a cooking school also.

This is by far the best experience I have ever had eating out while at the beach. My wife and I found this place on line and drove down from Pensacola beach for our anniversary. She wanted Italian and they went above our expectations. We are extremely picky patrons and our service was perfect. We would recommend this place to... More

We eat here this weekend and had a great Italian dinner. The prices are a little high for a place at a strip mall , but the food was really good.

My wife and I made the trip from Navarre (about 20 miles) not knowing what to expect ~ ~ ~ WOW, were we in for one of our BEST nights out in a very long time. Our dinner was by far one of the BEST meals we have had in our 9 years living on the FL Panhandle ~ what... More

I've been here three times now; twice for lunch with a large group of co-workers, and once for dinner. I really enjoy the wood-fired pizza and I understand the calzones are great too! I was especially impressed at the attentive service.

We ate here twice on our past week's vacation. The Sunday brunch was most memorable and interesting. The crepes were delicious! And the coffee was dark and strong - the way it should be! I also came here to take out wood fired pizzas to have at our condo one night. I added the bruschetta appetizer and was glad I... More

My wife and I arrived just as the restaurant opened for the Saturday evening meal. First time here so we did not have a reservation, however watching the number of folks coming through the door I would suggest one, especially if you are bringing a larger party. Foor was excellent. We started with the bruschetta. Tasty and neat presentation. I... More

Your expectations may be low as the restaurant is located in a 'strip mall'. However, don't let the location put you off. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is varied from pizza to pasta to Italian classics. The wine list had a limited variety of wines by the glass, but varied. The salad dressing was delicious. The portion... More
