Excellent Italian Restaurant

Really nice, excellent food, good atmosphere at reasonable prices. The Veal Abruzzi is a personal favorite. The salads are fresh and the service was great. The eggplat parmagiana and veal marsala were also great. This is a hidden gem

I think that the food here is very good. I also think the 2 french owners may not be cooking any more, albeit the kitchen turns out normally very good fare. However a few years ago it was all great. The bartender is great! Eat at the bar if you like, you'll be served well. I wish they'd remodel and... More

A solid, dependable local bistro, you'll find a dish that will be your favorite forever. Mine is chicken putanesca. A good wine list, Nice ambiance, and a staff that is most attentive. It's worth a drive from anywhere in the Tampa Bay area.

try the house chianti! along with the luscious lazania! service is always friendly and convivial, food could only be fresher if you cracked the eggs yourself for the pasta ... and hand-made brick oven pizzas! don't let the strip mall fool you ... molto bene!

I struggled on how many stars to give because some of the food was fantastic but some was marginal. The bolognese sauce was amongst the best I have ever had. The roasted chicken pizza was fantastic. Chicken piccata was average. Ravioli lacked flavor. Ambiance was dated. Servers were very friendly and accommodating.

Had the pork tenderloin special and it was awesome, my wife had the lasagna and loved it. Whatever you do make sure you get the cherry gelato in chocolate dessert!

Although located in a shopping center, the atmosphere at this little Italian restaurant is very nice. We went for our Valentine's Day dinner and were not disappointed. The food was really excellent and
