I was looking for an Italian restaurant that is not far from my house. I had lunch there & was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The place is not fancy but reminds me of the little restaurants in Italy along the roadside. I have eaten there a few more times & the food is always good... read more

We have tried just about everything on the menu and have never had anything but spectacular food. If you want something special, call ahead and they will make it if they know you are coming.

While the food was very good, the restaurant itself is dingy and in need of a real updating. Service was good.

The food is always exceptional and freshly made to order. Chris and Nichole own, operate and cook the most amazing dishes. This place should be packed to the rafters every night because the food is so delicious. We have tried just about everything on the menu and continue to go every time we are in North Port. Please don't just... More

This place is tucked away in a small strip shopping center. It is unpretentious but surprisingly good, both food and service. Specials were quite innovative and presentation of food inviting. Would be nice if they could offered a full bar. The atmosphere lacks a bit but the food and service go a long way in making up for that.

Very good and freshly cooked Italian food. Excellent carafe of Italian wine but a bottle of sparkling water cost $8. Friendly and helpful staff. Not many tables occupied at 7pm, so lacks buzz. Overall an enjoyable experience and we will return for the food.

Nicole knew we were coming in and made the best wedding soup for my husband. It was fantastic It is always the first place we go to eat when visiting our Florida home.

Service and food are good. Restaurant needs to refurbish. Furniture is tired. Prices are high for the ambiance of the restaurant.
