Excellent Food and Service

We were passing thru N. Myrtle and found this restaurant recommended by several travel services. With no reservations, we ended up eating at the bar. The service there was at least as good as at tables, and the servers were very prompt and attentive. Salads were very fresh. I had the lobster... read more

This place is the best for true Italian cuisine. If you don't see what you like on the board, ask and they will prepare it. The atmosphere is very quaint and cozy. As with most Italian restaurants, it can get a bit noisy when busy, but you won't notice so much, due to the fact you will be enjoying such... More

I have passed this resturant many times. Small tables outside with ashtrays on their tables. There were only about 4 tables. I figured, this is quaint but not really worth the time since there are so many other tried and true Italian places that are calling me. For our last night in North Myrtle Beach, our friends treated us and... More

This place looks like a little hole in the wall, but don't drive by! Food was delicious and service attentive. The menu is different daily, but they will prepare any Italian dish for which they have the ingredients. I went with the on the menu chicken saltimbocca, and it did not disappoint. The homemade sangria was absolutely delicious, and the... More

On a Wednesday evening in late March, this cozy Italian was packed--always a sign of good food and loyal customers. We enjoyed their bruschetta appetizer and veal parmesan, egglplant parmesan, gnocchi bolognese, and chicken aglio. The portions were so large there was no question of fitting in dessert, but we hope to get there eventually. The wait staff are very... More

My hubby and I arrived in Myrtle Beach on Dec. 27th. We were tired after our long 2 nine hour day drives and very hungry. We happened along this wonderful restaurant and found a gem. The atmosphere was very cozy and romantic. The service was impeccable. The food was divine!!!! They had a menu, but they were willing to accommodate... More

Great place for a romantic date. Service was excellent. The menu's are back-lit, making them easy to read in a dining room with lower lighting. My lasagna was amazing. It's not cheap, but it's absolutely worth it.

Could not ask for better Italian food and service. We went based on reviews and were glad we did. Truly, if you don't see it on the menu, just ask. I asked for veal carbonara rather than chicken, and they said certainly. One of the best dishes I have had. My wife had the lasagna special and found it excellent.... More
