Not since our trip to Italy have we experienced better Italian fare. Normally in Key West, a freshly caught seafood dinner is your first stop but this restaurant should lure you away from the docks. Whether it is the savory lasagna or lobster ravioli, you can close your eyes and imagine you are in Positano or Florence or---you get the... More

I have been here a couple of times, but this one was THE BEST experience ever! Chris was our server and he was AMAZING, great personality, very attentive, and always had something funny to say! The food was amazing as usual. I was entertaining some friends from Chicago, and they LOVED the dinner and everything about it including the Martinis!... More

The food was good, not excellent as others have written. The hog fish special smelled fishy and definitely was not fresh. The yellowtail snapper was very good. The chicken marsala had a fine sauce and plenty of mushrooms, but the chicken was a bit overcooked.The salad of figs, goat cheese and walnuts was delicious. Fettuccini alfredo was good. Crème brulee... More

Had dined here 4 times in 2 weeks because each visit outdid the previous visit ! The ambience , staff and aromas were 5 star. Whether dining in the dining room. A high top table in the bar or at the bar, never a complaint. Just walking in the aromas grabbed you. Beautiful dining area and gorgeous bar. All staff... More

Have eaten here many times. Won't go back. They act like they are doing you a favor by allowing you to eat there. You can't get frozen drinks here since they don't have a blender??? Just so so food. Tables very close and rather warm in the restaurant. Nothing to look at. Go to another Italian restaurant where they act... More

White tablecloth and cozy romantic atmosphere. The food is great and the service also. The location we visited was on Duval Street. Don't forget to visit the attached bar called Virgilios for a Martini.

I love Italian Food--especially after spending over four years living in Italy. What I've never appreciated was Italian Restaurants in the United States. They always seem to rely more on appearance than taste. I had the best Arrabiatta I've ever had since I left Sardinia almost 20 years ago and my wife felt the same about her Fettucine Alfredo.
