Don't know why, but food is sort of incipid! Need more strength! A simple pasta is not an easy task, wish it were better as atmosphere is good.

Great nearby restaurant, went with a friend and sat at the bar. Super friendly staff served our beverages and later the food. Started with one of their special wines "on clearance" (only one bottle left) for a special price, and it was delicious. Made a meal of very generous appetizers and a dessert, and it did not break the bank.... More

This place USED to be THE FIND in Broward County. Gourmet food at reasonable prices. A really tough table any night. Well, we went back last week after about a 3-4 month hiatus and it has REALLY gone downhill, like the owners have decided to totally sell-out and go all-in for profitability and mediocrity rather than quality and uniqueness.

I love this charming little trattoria! The owner is so nice and has decades of experience in the business. I discovered this restaurant in June this year and have been back 3 times since. Every time, no matter what night you go, its packed! Reservations are definately recommended. The Wiener Schnitzel is a top favorite. Maybe it's the Italian influence... More

Great small restaurant with very friendly service. Food is always excellent and the menu changes often. Fresh pastas and homemade gelato! Nice little outside a area to sit if the weather is nice. The bar is a great place to sit too.

The service was very friendly but slow and the food was average. I ordered spaghetti with shrimp and sundried tomatoes and was told it was in a wine and garlic sauce but it tasted like beef bouillon. My husband's pork was dry and the spaetzle was bland and oily.On a positive note, the calamari appetizer was fantastic.

Been with 1month baby, quite enough for baby to sleep. Waiters really know the menu, can explain any details. Fast service, tasty meals.
