This place is off the hook!! Easy to miss when driving on Hwy-85. But, once you find it, you will never want to forget where it is. Great Italian style food. A little more pricy than some places, but you get large portions and great atmosphere. Loved it!!!

First, use your GPS to find this place, and turn into the gravel lot with a stump grinding sign. There is no sign by the road and the little house-like building sits a little back from the road. The sign is teeny and on the building itself, so hard to see. Now for what you really want to know...eat here.... More

After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I had to try this place! It was noisy, it was crowded, you need a reservation between 5 and 7. BUT!! The food is so worth it! Called ahead and got the last table for 7pm. We were seated right away. The waitress was very attentive all evening even though the place was... More

A very good italian restaurant in Niceville. Need a reservation as well as a sherpa guide (how about a sign at least?) but it is worth the effort. The atmosphere is that there is almost no atmosphere. Crowded and noisy but it's all about the great food and attentive service.

This was our chance to review the restaurant a second time and what a change. Yes, it is small and can feel cramped but the food was very good. The grouper was good, but the mussels were excellent. The chicken piccata was the best served over pasta. Good portions and not very salty like lots of Italian places. We will... More

I have tried this restaurant several times and did not like the food. Others seem to think it is good but I didn't, I can do better at home.

The food was really good but experience wasn't worth it. My only beef with this place is the seating! If you're going for family-style seating please set up community tables. They've tried to squish too many tables in a small place. We dined there on a Saturday night and it was so loud and crowded. The man at the table... More

I had been a number of years since we'd been to Tradewinds but we decided to go to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. We had a party of seven, and reservations, and were seated right away. We had an excellent dinner. Even my father-in-law who rarely comments about great food commented that he really enjoyed his meal. It's pretty cramped inside... More

I have been coming here since they opened and never had anything but a fantastic meal. I also get my to go pizza's from here. The food is fresh, the place is cozy and feels like you are part of a great big family. You can never go wrong eating here but make sure you make a reservation and don't... More
