This place is great. From the road it doesn't look like much, but wow - what a great surprise. It was really cool inside. We ended up getting the early bird dinner (4:00-5:30) and we got a great meal, salad, a drink, bread and garlic to dip the bread in. The food was superb and even though it was an... More

We went here with our family on a Friday evening. After a round of cocktails, we had very good and very plentiful entrees. The place was jam packed (we had a wheelchair parking permit - thank goodness, or we would never have found a place to park), but our server was attentive, not hovering but not absent, and we had...

This was the 2nd time around for this place, (no review 1st time) and were we delighted. Live Music, by an excellent entertainer (My favorite Kind of music too). I had the stuffed (Goat Cheese) C. Breasts over pasta. The sauce was GREAT! Kudos to the sauce-maker. Decor was fine, private and smelly. Server (Jimmy) very prompt, friendly and a... More

The owner should be ashamed of his behavior if he has any shame. We had taken my boyfriend's elderly parents out for their 56th anniversary. Having experienced this restaurant on one prior occasion I thought "what a perfect place". However; what we experienced is unfathomable. To begin; I would add that on the poor health of both parents, Mom having... More

If you like Italian with "real" Florida ambience this is it! Ask to be seated outside and if possible ask for Cindi....she is a great waitress. The menu will provide the the normal Italian fare and the roasted garlic to be used on the bread instead of butter is a nice change. The sauce, preparation, and professional wait staff will... More
