A nice romantic meal

Table side by the window is where to be especially in the late afternoon. We had a view of the ocean for a little while but the restaurant sits on the Atlantic side so the sunset doesn't really come through but still pretty. Service was good. Our waiter was Hadam.

Location - on Duval Street but away from the hustle & bustle of the heavy partiers . A lovely white table cloth restaurant - like an oasis in the middle of fun chaos . We were 6 people and not one of us had a complaint about the food ( very good Italian cuisine ) or service . My wife... More

atmosphere very nice and food very fresh and delicious. The service however was very slow. The price for a house salad was over $8.00 which I think is a little pricey. However, the entrees were fresh, warm and presentation very nice.

Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken gets an A+! Espresso martini is a must too! Good service.. Very busy place. Reservations are almost a must... Or order take out and pass the time waiting at the bar!

Visited for an evening dinner. Exceptionally busy,so we waited at the bar and had a few cocktails until back restaurant area opened up. As we entered we were told we couldn't be seated due to a separate entrance area where people were also waiting. We were never told of the separate entrance, and told we would have to wait after...

We went one night and no openings until 930pm! So we made a reservation for the next evening. Simply, but nicely decorated, a bit noisy, but not obnoxiously. The waitress was very attentive and patiently explained the specials. I had the paean salad and the Hog Fish Special. Salad was small, but delicious and out of the ordinary. The Hog... More

Many staff members came by to say hello and welcome us back. huh? Whoever we looked like must be nice people ! Food is very good and the service... More

Its very convenient to our hotel, and right on Duval St. My wife had two appetizers and I had the veal masala, all of which was prepared just right. I had cream Brule and wife had... More

If you're looking for a little more of an upscale restaurant experience on Duval St this is the place. The food is prepared to perfection and the service is good. The only negative for me was that the wine list was limited. We sat at the bar and people watched.

I was in Key West the week of my Wedding last month. Our last night we had a wonderful dinner here. Customer service was amazing. They made myself and my husband feel so special. They even surprised us with a delicious desert with an awesome candle congratulating us on our wedding! Atmosphere was cool and laid back, it was clean,... More
