We visited this restaurant while vacationing in Corolla. The restaurant is small and there was a thirty minute wait.

Our waitress was pleasant and very efficient and the food was excellent especially the veal and fresh seafood.... More

Service was fantastic. Restaurant was very accommodating to our party of 10. They even took a reservation at 5:30 for 6:00 diner. The food was average Italian and pricy. I got chicken gnocchi which was priced at $23.00. Overall a good place to eat.

I had the calamari, artichoke dip, and crab cakes for appetizers. They were all delicious. They also had gluten free options for all their pastas. Food was great and really fast. I would go again.

Not a cheap restaurant, three adults ate for $50 including tip. Best food on the island (it's my third time here, first time eatting North of Duck). The Tarimisu is the best you will find on the island and perhaps in either of the Carolinas as well. A place to go without a doubt. Staff is friendly ams the atmosphere... More

Ate here our first night on vacation. Having never eaten here before we were pleasantly surprised. From the bread to the appetizers to the entrees we just could not get enough.

All of the food we ordered was surprisingly good! We had calamari with delicious marinara sauce, BLTurkey sandwich, blueberry salad with grilled chicken, chicken Cordon Bleu, hot ham and cheese sandwich, and the Bianca pizza. Everything was delicious!
