I had dinner here with a friend and I really enjoyed the food and the place. My friend lives close by and is a regular here, which I guess made the owner feel he could make us wait for a table longer then necessary. He had 4 top tables available but didnt want to give one to us because there... More

We recently stopped in for an early dinner based on the #3 TA rating. While the food was pretty good, the prices were pretty steep for the pasta dishes. The location was off the beaten path in a tiny uninspired building far away from the busy district so the overhead can't be that much to warrant the prices. The owners... More

We have been dining in St. Augustine every night for the last 2 weeks. Please, everyone, take the extra 10 minutes to drive south of the "Old City", over the Bridge Of Lions on A1A South! As you enter into this classic Italian family restaurant, you are greeted by the owners, Robyn & Jay, seated immediately and taken into a... More

My husband and I went for our 27th wedding anniversary. The service is wonderful and the staff is very pleasant and attentive. I had the Veal Parmesan which was the best I have ever had. My husband had the curly spaghetti with meatballs and sausage, which was also excellent. The chocolate cake for dessert, which had cream cheese layered in... More

Plentiful portions of excellently prepared food. Everyone was very happy with their meal - lots of sharing and appreciation going on. Wine choices adequate and service was attentive. The cooks accommodated gluten free requests happily. What a great meal and a decent price!

We chose this restaurant because it had such fabulous reviews, but for the first time ever...you contributors led us wrong! The mussels were great, but it went down hill from there. The restaurant is a tiny A framed building with only around 7 or 8 tables inside. They are so close it made us self conscious. It was decorated like... More

We are shocked to receive this negative, inaccurate review. We have never charged anyone for bread and we serve it with whipped herb butter and a complimentary serving of our homemade caponata. AS you mentioned we do charge for additional sides of caponata, but additional bread and butter are always complimentary. We offer free refills on our home brewed iced... More

It's a sin to not eat at this Italian Resturant. The food was fresh and homemade. Next time we vist St. Augustine we are coming here for two of our dinners. I can't say enough about this place. I had the manicotti and my gf had the lasagna. By far the best we have had. Great service! Cute place! Will... More

My sweetheart and I had a wonderful intimate dinner for two in this cozy and romantic little spot not far from the pristine beaches of St Augustine. The food tasted homemade and authentically Italian, loved the fresh seafood on a bed on soft angel hair pasta, and the chicken marsala was delicious from first bite to last. We ordered extra... More
