This place has been closed for about five or six months now. I ate some of their food were they catered, but never visited the restaurant. It's in a bad location. Several restaurants have opened in this location without success. The first restaurant that was successful and the last one, too, was in the "80's.

The people there were really nice, the manager at one point came over to check on us, and was super friendly. The portions were great, overall great experience.

Not fancy interior but clearly a family owned restaurant that takes pride in the quality of their food and good service. In a town that has restaurants that are essentially devoid of character, this place is worth a visit.

Gloria Pizzuti has brought a taste of Italy to Coastal North Carolina. Food is amazing with generous portions of authentic Italian cuisine. Any veal dish is delish. They make an amazing mixed seafood dish which is served in a homemade boule witch is cooked in garlic butter and then filled with fresh shrimp, lobster, scallops, and mussels in a champagne... More

There were a few tables filled, but the dining room was probably 30-40 percent capacity when we arrived for our 8:45 pm Saturday night reservation. Traffic trailed off while we were there. When we left, capacity was probably 20 percent. The good: Portion size. Each dish was enough to share between at least two people. The Atmosphere: A friendly quiet... More

First found out about this place here on TripAdvisor. When we drove up to the restaurant we had mixed feelings. Once you step inside you will be pleasantly surprised. The inside is wonderfully decorated and if you sit in a booth you can see the cooks make your food. The head chef is really from Italy and extremely talented. We... More

This place is way over price because of the portion sizes wow. If they food was great along with service would still be over priced. It's to bad we can't get a good upscale Italian restaurant in Jacksonville. The food here is only average good u will never have wait for a seat only service.

What can we say other than Outstanding Food and Service. We are so glad that this family has opened up this Italian restaurant in Jacksonville. We have been waiting for a place like this for years. This town has been lacking such a place since the Marino family left. The food is supreme. Homemade bread to die for. The homemade... More

The food was fantastic! The portions were large, and if it takes a little longer it's because everything was homemade & prepared fresh. The service was both friendly & professional. The wine list was great and reasonably priced. I have been in Jacksonville 3 years & this town is in desperate need of restaurants just like this...Family owned & operated,... More
