It's been a few years since we've had a chance to return to Destin and each time, we can't wait to visit this family run authentic Italian restaurant. This time we took the entire family consisting of 5 children and 6 adults. The kids menu was just right with three delicious options. The bread and seasoned olive oil was delivered within a few minutes. The bread warm and oil great! Even the kids (1-13 years) enjoyed it. We ordered 3 calamari dishes as appetizers and weren't disappointed.....DELICIOUS! We had 2 bottles of wine that was a sufficient amount and very good. The adults ordered a variety of items including the risotto lobster, spaghetti Frutti Di mare, and the lamb chops (aka rack of lamb). The kids had spaghetti and pizza. Everything was absolutely wonderful, fresh and tasty. Our server was Francesca; one of the two sisters. We had the other sister Makayla last time we ate here. Momma cooks!! All the servers spoke to us and it is obvious they love serving their wonderful food! Extremely enjoyable atmosphere and good level of talk. There is a TV in the corner which I personally thought took away somewhat from the music and experience, but the guys liked having the opportunity to keep track of the "game".
When we arrived at 6ish there were several tables already occupied and busy; when we left there wasn't an empty table that we could see! I suggest reservations to ensure you get a table!
If you are looking for authentic Italian food look no further! This is it!!! And it is delicious!
