I've read some disheartening reviews of this restaurant but my experiences have always been truly wonderful. I can't find enough superlatives to describe what I've eaten. The Tuscan style chicken with angel hair pasta is indescribably delicious. The ambience is terrific, the seating quite comfortable and well spaced. It's a lovely restaurant. The servers were always polite and well informed.... More

We went New Years Eve, sat a table for ten minutes and not one server greeted . It wasn't busy and they had plenty of servers.

We watched this place as it was completed over time, hoping for a good Italian restaurant in St. Pete---we got just OK. The décor and design are wonderful. However, the food was just OK. The menu was fine, but the food lacked good Italian flavor. The Bolognese sauce was thin and not very good in flavor. The Italian sausage had... More

Last night my husband and I returned to this restaurant which I have reviewed several times. An abrupt woman walked up to us and said, didn't ask, "Reservation or a walk-in" as she looked at the people walking in behind us. I laughed and said "well, we walked-in and no reservation so I guess we're walk-ins." I was caught off... More

Went here for dinner last night with a large group of women. The ambience of the restaurant was very nice, the bar was just the right size and perfect for friends to sit and talk before going to dinner. An added plus was that they had Peroni on tap. The Pasta Alfredo I had was delicious, and the dishes that... More

The food was good and portion size excellent. I had chicken and spinach ravioli. The chicken could have been ground up and that would have made it better. The service was OK but not special and the table cloth on the table was dirty and should have been replaced before we sat down. Nothing really special. Price was right for... More

Had lunch there this week and was very disappointed. The soap was lukewarm and the pasta was mushy. My wife had a salad with steak. Steak was cook perfect. The rest was a joke. Canned oranges and old strawberries. The dressing was poor in texture and flavor. The lettuce was not mixed greens but just romaine lettuce I had the... More
