We had the deep fried cheese and cheesy garlic bread starters, both fantastic. Mains were equally good, but enormous portions. Best lasagne I've had in a long time, loads of rich creamy bechamel and big chunks of meat. Good beer, great service. Almost didn't stop here, doesn't look much from the outside but it was fantastic, would definitely go back... More

I want to give this place a better review but can't. The best thing about our meals was the turtle cheesecake which I am sure they did not make. We tried the minestrone and Italian wedding soups and both were tepid and mediocre, no better than canned. the Italian nachos were a disaster - could not find the sausage and... More

Fettuccine Alfredo, Ravioli Florentine, Crab Cake Appetizer and the Filet Mignon special are all awesome dishes and the servings are very generous (always a take home box to enjoy later). Very nice atmosphere with formal dining, outdoor dining, or enjoy TV and the relaxed ambiance and conversation with the servers of the bar room. Live music on weekends. My favorite... More

We enjoyed Gnocchi with fontina sauce, chicken Alfredo and the BLT and all were great. Made from scratch sauces! A new goto restaurant for us!

I had gnocchi in a vodka cream sauce and my husband had fettuccini Alfredo specials his was great but mine was yucky. The service was fine and friendly but I was expecting more because we had heard good things.

Fantastic lunch here. Just having a stroll along the street in Tupelo looking for somewhere to have lunch and stumbled across Nautical Whimsey. Amazing food at the buffet and brilliant staff/ service. Really friendly folks. Cajun Chicken lasagna was something else...so tasty and the shrimp grits was delicious. Would thoroughly recommend this restaurant

Whew!!! I went here today for lunch. I'm a local that wants to our local places to do good! Service at lunch hour was horrible. Food was just as bad. I'm not really sure what I ate. Some kind of crab sandwich, then some kind of shrimp soup?? Man, I don't know what it was.. This place was packed for... More

When we got to the restaurant, nobody greets you, and you are kind of lost as to where to go. We waited a few minutes then a waitress came and took our drink order and brought us menus. The menu is limited. I decided to ask the waitress if they had the little pieces of toast that you dip in... More

Horrible food and service, waited 15 minutes for drinks, ordered 3 different wines they were completely out of and was told the food was homemade, yet I see the owner in the local Kroger at least 3 mornings a week. If you want "gourmet italian" buy canned sauce and frozen ravioli for 1/3 the price and make it at home,... More
