First the only reason I tried this place was tripadvisor. The outside of this restaurant needs a major overhaul, looks very tacky and I probably would have never gone otherwise. The windows need a very good washing, just doing that would make it much more inviting. My party of three arrived at 7 pm to a packed house on a... More

We started the meal with salad and rolls. The garlic rolls were not oily but were delicious. I had my favorite of Eggplant and my spouse had the Veal Marsala with an excellent sweet white sauce which is to die for. The live music is not great but it does add atmosphere. The prices were reasonable and the service is... More

I've been there this weekend with my family and sauce and food was authentic. I looked at some reviews from Restaurant.com and also Trip Advisor so that's why we picked this place and we didn't regret. We looked through their website to check their dinner prices and it matched and they had good prices starting at $14 for an entree... More

Went there for takeout since it is dumping cats and dogs outside. Their prices say Platters $9.99 for veal, chicken, or eggplant parm with pasta and salad. There is no fine print online or note saying these are only for early birds buying before 6pm. I paid $17.97!!! I told the waitress about the price not matching online and she... More

My husband supported himself through college by singing in a Sicilian restaurant in the Chicago area in the 1970's & '80s. It has become extremely hard to find an Italian restaurant with live music anymore, although we always look for one when we are travelling. When we were in the Pompano Beach area, we were pleased to find that the... More

This was an intimate setting, with good food and good service. The biggest hit was the home made tiramisu that was gone in seconds. She said it was one of the best Tiramisu that she has ever had. I recommend this restaurant, but it is a tad bit pricey, BUT WORTH IT!

This little restaurant is tucked away off Federal Highway. It is small and cozy with red and white checkered cloth table cloths. It has an extensive menu. We had mussels in red sauce, excellent, and eggplant parmesan, which was also excellent. They have live music on weekends which leaves a lot to be desired until the owner takes the mic... More

We Loved it, and the entertainer made it all the better! Service was great. The restaurant is very nice and our pizza was delicious. Portions are very large. Music in the evening was pleasant.
