I've been to Tradewinds a few times for office functions. I know it is a popular spot among the locals, and there's almost a cult following I guess you could say. But I've never found anything particularly special about it. The food is average, the prices are high, and the menu is limited. I guess if you're a beer/wine drinker,... More

We've been eating here for 15 years and other than the size of the restaurant, nothing has changed. The food is absolutely amazing. The Crab Cakes, Chicken Marsala, and Pasta Mediterraneo are menu staples that are definite must haves. Don't mind the hole in the wall atmosphere, it adds to the charm. The owner is usually there every night talking... More

The food was pretty average. It was good but not the best we've ever had and not near as spectacular as the reviews made it seem. Had the portobello mushroom appetizer and it was pretty good... I had the chicken principessa as my meal and honestly I have nothing bad to say about it. It was good and easily the... More

As unbelievable as it sounds, I have probably eaten here over a hundred times the last six years and it's absolutely amazing food and service! I have never had a bad dish and the staff are always upbeat and on point!

This place is about 10 minutes from where I live. It is our "go to" restaurant. We bring guests from out of town and often meet friends here and they all want to come back. You will not leave hungry. The Mediterraneo (white) is my favorite and my wife loves their Eggplant Parm (baked not fried). Their wine list is... More

We love Tradewinds and so do our out of town friends from Birmingham, Tampa and Jackson! Tom and his staff are always extremely friendly and helpful with choosing our meals and wine. Even when its a busy night, they always take care of their guests. It's always on the list of where to eat when they are in town. It's... More

Offering authentic Italian cuisine, fresh seafood, and an impressive wine selection, Tradewinds is truly a great find. The wait staff are friendly and helpful, making suggestions for wine pairings or entree selections as desired. The veal picatta was among the best I've had--no holding backing on the capers! It was a wonderful evening, and I will go back many times.

I am a converted Northerner that still frequents Little Italy. This is one of the best Italian spots around. The atmosphere adds to the fun of the restaurant. We have family from up North that want to go every time they visit!

Just keeps getting better. We have been going here for years whenever we are back in Niceville. Best Italian food in northwest florida. Even the godfathers from up north go here.
