Just really good Italian.

The food is tasty, flavorful, well-presented. Perhaps the small restaurant size allows for the right amount of attention to every dish? Who knows, but it's working!

Excellent staff, friendly, knowledgeable and plenty of items to chose from. The restaurant is a smaller one but the food cannot be beat with reasonable prices. My experience was so good my husband and I have eaten all over their menu over many months having had our son introduce us to the place initially. My son Philip likes it so... More

This particular place is tucked away in a strip mall. My lady companion and I thought we'd give it a try. The prices are a bit higher than say, Olive Garden. However, sometimes small business are trying to keep ahead of rising costs. The service was quite routine, typically more honest and fair compared to chain types. The food was... More

You would never know this little gem is tucked away in the Winn Dixie plaza unless someone had told you about it, but it is worth a visit! Decor was lovely and there were only two other tables seated while we were there. Bread and oil was complimentary. I had the eggplant parm which was delicious and a large serving-... More

new to the area and still looking for mom and pop places. Read the reviews in trip advisor and decided to try it. Place was clean, server "Edson" was polite and friendly. Answered any questions we had. Food was great and reasonable. Home made deserts-scored huge with my spouse. definitely going back

I love this place. Great food, beautifully prepared. The garlic bread is worth ordering by itself. My son, who loves loves loves Italian cuisine, just told me that hands down, it's the best Italian meal he's ever eaten. I can't argue. Prices are fine. Food this good is made with quality ingredients by someone who knows how. It doesn't come... More

Much nicer inside that what I expected from a little place next to Winn Dixie. Wait staff was great, chicken marsala was out of this world! They brought us more bread with no problem even though they were packed and really having to work to keep up with everything. We will be back many times!!

The restaurant is beautiful. The decor is as if you were truly dining in Italy. They have cute bistro tables outside for dining or enjoying a cup of expresso & a cannoli. The chef visited us & others at their table. The dessert was the best. Tuxedo Brownie Mousse is filled with chocolate mousse & cream. A must!

I just don't get it. Okay,I'm not especially a fan of Italian food. On the other hand, my wife loves it. I'be been here several times always hoping for better results. The service is inconsistent, the food mediocre and the pricing on the high side. The restaurant is in a small strip mall anchored by a Winn Dixie. A stretch... More

wait staff had language difficulties. staff surely not Italian. I think may be Middle Eastern. Food was not impressive. While they were passing it off as an Italian menu, most items were not seasoned as I would expect. We were seated in a private location in the same room as a children's family birthday was taking place. While we were... More
