My family went to this restaurant after leaving sea world. The restaurant was conveniently located nearby. It is a cozy mom and pop with great Italian food, and our waiter Carmelo went the extra mile. It was my daughter's birthday and they brought cake and sang to her. This is not something I am accustomed to in a classy Italian... More

I loved their house bread with balsamic dip. I ordered the eggplant parmesan and it was also delicious. The house salad dressing was maybe a bit tart, but overall very good. It is a bit pricey however.

My wife's chicken dish (Pollo Al Limoncello Di Casa) was very poor--relatively tasteless. My pasta dish (Pappardelle Al Cinghiale Con Porcini) was pretty good, but nothing exceptional about it. The service was very attentive, The shopping center in which the restaurant is located is very dilapidated, with multiple empty stores.

First looks are deceptive. It is in a strip mall that looks a little bit seedy. Inside, it is a nicely furnished restaurant with friendly, efficient staff. The food was fresh and not overly seasoned. This place rivals my favorite restaurant in New York's Little Italy. The tiramisu was outstanding.

Curiously from coincidences incredible things happen. We had planned to dine out no more than a few sandwiches and in a small shopping plaza we found this place. We decided to go inside and did not regret it at all. The food is amazing as well as the service, all very well-prepared traditional dishes of italy. Although we all know... More

Went for dinner November 17th after reading trip advisor reviews. My husband ordered the house speciality "veal chop" which came with 1 baby potato and a few tablespoons of overdone peas. Cost $55 I order the pasta special. Sirloin tips overcooked and tough; pasta sauce tasted like canned gravy. Cost $27 We found the staff friendly; the decor adequate but... More

Starting with a cocktail is my normal activity, they only offered beer and wine. The wine we got was an exceptional Merlot. The food was good, but the Lobster Ravioli was all cheese. Perfectly cooked pasta, but with just 2 small pieces of lobster in the stuffing.

This is a small restaurant in a shabby strip mall. You might not even notice it is there as you drive by, and in Orlando with thousands of restaurant choices in more attractive areas, it would be easy to miss this one. The food is well above average, the service is attentive, but slow. You will have plenty of time... More

Just finished a wonderful meal here... Had the calamari upon the recommendation of our waiter it was outstanding, delicious and so tender, served bathed in a wonderful lemon sauce that you will mop up with the crusty bread. Two of us shared the stuffed veal chop, it was outstanding. I would recommend this small owner operated restaurant on this restaurant... More
