Incredible food, great views. We went here for dinner (I recommend reservations!) They have perfectly cooked fish and italian food. It seemed like more northern italian influence but was still on the light side. The chef isn't stingy with the truffles. I will definitely return!

Let me start by saying the service from the hostess to the whole wait staff was perfect. The restaurant is quite beautiful and elegant with a great view. We were a little disappointed that the selections were somewhat limited. Really hoping for a risotto dish. The bread bowl was wonderful especially the olive bread and ciabbata. My partner ordered the... More

This used to be the best place on Marco. It is a gorgeous venue, but the menu can get a little too trendy and pricey - as well as the staff being a little full of themselves. We were there twice in the last month. Our last visit we had bugs/fruit flies in our drinks. It was a little gross,... More

We regret to hear of these perceptions. Chef Giuliano strives to offer a wide variety of specials especially during the summer months. We hope you will offer us the opportunity to course correct, and join us for a summer special, or price fixed option. More

The ambience was wonderful with the design favoring a medieval castle. There is a lovely terrace overlooking the Gulf of Mexico which is, unfortunately, largely booked for large parties, weddings, etc. The menu is completely a la carte with the exception of a prix fixe menu with a choice of three entrees for 45. Portions are tiny, prices are outrageous,... More

Unfortunately that's kind of the highlight of the dinner. Sale has a beautiful bar and patio. The restaurant really is beautiful. The food is good but not great. The service is actually pretty bad. Servers are a bit pretentious-not terribly friendly or helpful. Value is awful. Your clearly paying for the view. Decent restaurant if you've got money to burn.... More

We were seated promptly at a window table overlooking the patio and the Gulf--very scenic. Our server, Svetlana, greeted us immediately. Cocktails were prepared perfectly. There were several prix fixe options which included soup or salad and a dessert. Of the four of us, I had veal, the others seafood. The soup was excellent, the entrees very good. Svetlana was...
