I went there during a convention in Orlando. I got the Veal special which was thinly sliced Veal wrapped around fresh Homemade Mozzarella and roasted, It came with a mushroom sauce. It was the largest veal dish I've ever seen. The combination of the fresh mozzarella, sauce, and the savory meat... read more

From reading other reviews it seems as though the food and service may be decent if you go early, but go at 9.30 pm and you're out of luck. Yes, we went late but the service was atrocious! The second it hit "closing time" the staff proceeded to slam the chairs and silverware in order to let us know it... More

Found this restaurant online while looking for good Italian food near Disney. Don't let the strip mall location scare you off. This is authentic home-style delicious food. Everything from the pasta, the chicken, the meatballs, and even the amazing creme brûlée was incredible. Will return for another meal here next time we are in town.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant & took a chance on this one. We were not sorry! From the outside it looks like a little hole in the wall but the inside is really quite nice. The staff were very friendly, more than efficient and want you to have a wonderful dining experience. The food was outstanding & we... More

Went there with a group of 4 and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Wait staff was very efficient and courteous. We enjoyed it so much that when we left we made reservations for another evening. Only thing we didn't enjoy were the tables of who were most likely conventioneers that were quite loud, and got louder with... More

Had dinner with three friends after attending a trade show in the Convention Center just down I-Drive. The restaurant is located in a strip shopping center just after the underpass exit to #528 from I-Drive. I have eaten at this restaurant for over fifteen years while traveling to Orlando for both work and pleasure. For authentic Italian cooking it is... More

The restaurant is just off International Drive. Coming from the Convention Center it is in the opposite direction of the other large restaurant areas, which makes it a little hard to find (it is behind Delmonico's Steak House), but I think it adds to its charm. The waiters are all older Italian gentlemen. I had the lobster bisque, which was... More

Knowing this was the sister store of Vincenzo's, we decided to try it during one of our many trips to Otown. Don't let the location or strip mall construction deter you. The food was delicious and the service wonderful. Franco, our server, was a delight and very attentive. We enjoyed it so much, it was our choice for dinner the... More
