Good, not great!

The service was excellent. The food was typical southern Italian or Tuscan. If that's what you like, then go there. I prefer true northern Italian food; fish, squid, and veggies. I lived in Venice for a while and have never found a true northern Italian restaurant anywhere here in south Florida.

Its OK for a non-franchised red auce place. I had the veal marsala, it was curiously bland. Pasta is better though it is served more as a main dish than a first couse. The eggplant isnt bad

First time at this restaurant. There were 5 of us. We all had something different and we all liked our food. The staff was friendly and efficient.

It was our first time in this restaurant so I don't know what the old one looked like... But the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. Our family of 6 loved it. We would definitely come back again when we are in town visiting.

First time in this restaurant, it is just 3 min away from where I live, newly renovated, modern decor. Very pleasant ambiance. FOOD: The best Italian food I have ever tasted in the U.S. I tried the Pasta Rustica, Pasta a la Bolognese and Sole Mio Pasta. All of them delicious, authentic Italian! I will be back for the food!... More

They recently renovated and have a large bar area. Open for lunch and dinner and great value for money. All of the past dishes are very good. The lunch menu has sandwiches, pasta, fish, etc and reasonable prices. Dinner has great choices. We had the calamari to start (very good) and entrees were gnocchi and fettucini carbonara (both really good)... More

It may be within the same shopping center, but the new location is 1000 times better. It's the same fine Italian food, but the old space was tired and boring. The new space is modern, open and welcoming. It's a neighborhood joint with a high percentage of regulars for good reason: the food. The service is also very good, and... More

This is our favorite local Italian food restaurant. Food is priced fair to slightly higher than fair. You will not be disappointed with the food so paying a little extra is not a problem. Service has been consistently good over the years. Sometimes the wait is a bit long to get in, but that is expected if the food is... More

The absolute best lasagna in south Florida. In addition, all their red sauces are fresh and delicious, their fish and meats cooked to perfection. Very good and knowledgeable wait staff and reasonable prices. What more could you ask for? My wife and I have dinner there a couple of times a month and have never been disapointed.

Intimate and elegant setting. Food delicious and service very good. Come early on weekends as it fills up quickly after 6pm.
