We picked this restaurant to be the place we celebrate our silver anniversary. We timed our arrival just prior to the sunset and instructed the staff we'd like champagne with us on the balcony. As a result of the slow service we missed the sunset view from the balcony. We did view it from our table. They took our picture,... More

So yes the location is to die for and the sunset was beautiful, but I had a very disappointing piece of veal (way overcooked) sent it back and it wasn't any better the second time around. My wife had the fish and loved it! Bad meal choice, sometimes you lose!

We are not new to this restaurant and in fact have dined there more times than we can count. The restaurant is beautiful, dare we say the nicest in atmosphere on the island with indoor and outdoor seating. Most of the times when we go there is a wedding going on and once you see the beauty you will know... More

You have dined with us more times than you ‘can count'. Thank you for enjoying your past visits that prompted those frequent returns. You sing praises to Chef Giuliano and the atmosphere that overlooks the Gulf. Having enjoyed all of this on a multitude of occasions, we ask for understanding of the recent folly. I agree completely, the situation should... More

Yeah, Yeah, so its a little expensive but what you get - - - Make a reservation, valet parking and a nice welcome. Great surroundings and greeted by name. Just like flying first class. Not a huge menu but that's not an issue because you should know that what you are offered is perfected. Our server, Victoria didn't so much... More

We live on the island but had never been here before. Our kids gave us a gift certificate which we thought was large enough to cover three people, so we had dinner there with a good friend.

Best restaurant on Marco Island! Ask for a table by the water. The restaurant sits right by the beach. Go at sunset for fab pics. I had the homemade fettucini with white bolognese sauce, and I think I heard angels singing every time I took a bite. Food was amazing and the staff is well-trained. Awesome wine list too.

First time trying S & P. Dined in the evening, so no view of the gulf, but still pleasant. We were seated near the side of the outdoor area, near their POS system and close to a pretty bright light. We thought that was an odd spot to seat us at since most of the middle tables were unoccupied. Oh... More
