Surprisingly good

Very good food, good Services. It has a nice list of wines, but I found that The menu is somehow limited. It is a small and Very popular restaurant , so it is wise to make a reservation

Thankfully, we were in no hurry. We had a nice waiter who was concerned when he discovered we had not yet been helped and he readily said he would help us. After we ordered it took a long time to get the food. The table next to us complained and said they waited 1.5 hours for their food. My husband... More

Recently ate here with friends that love the place. No real complaints, but nothing to bring me back either. Food and service were good and very reasonably priced, but none of the main courses we had really stood out and I hate the location. They could use some better signage also. Deserts were the highlights, the bread pudding and the... More

A great little Italian spot, with outdoor seating. Folks in the group had the Pappardelle, so rich and good. Also the Eggplant part was excellent. Desserts were great as well. Very good service. Overall excellent.

If you blinked you can miss one of my favourite restaurants in Hallandale,Florida. It's located near a large food chain in a mall at the back end. Irregardless, once you find it you'll return. Our party started the evening with selection of salads, for example a roasted beet salad, a chopped salad or an arugula salad. The wine we chose... More

Great food and service, very hospitable staff, an absolute must try is their house Malbec. Their plates are in half portions and full sizes. Oddly located.
