We were pleasantly surprised with our meal. The food exceeded our expectations. We dined with our toddler that evening and our server was very attentive to our needs (menu tips, offering to bring our daughter's meal first, etc...). It was a nice break from the typical beach place. It felt upscale, but was very approachable. The fettuccine Alfredo was excellent.

Beach area restaurant with very good italian food. Pleasant service and nice atmosphere. Try the fried ravioli appetizer or the stuffed mushrooms.

Husband had spaghetti and meatballs, I wasn't so hungry and just had a ceasar salad and an order of cheesy garlic bread. Husband wasn't a fan of the meatballs, super soft and not moist soft just gooey soft. My salad had way too much dressing on it, which some people do like just not me. My garlic cheese bread was...

We enjoy the food and like the outside deck. We have had pasta dishes, philly sandwiches and pizza here over the years and have always loved the food. When my sister is in town she always brings her small dog with her to dinner and this is also one of her favorite places. Only downside is that it is pricey... More

There are several alternative seating areas, each with their own differing furnishings. In addition to the main menu, there is an "early bird" special from lunch through the afternoon and it was excellent value for money. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was really tasty and high quality. We also especially liked the fact that the food was... More
