“Night club treatment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

My wife and I had made a reservation for our Anniversary a week in advance. We showed up 5 min early, was told there were no tables available and it would be atleast a 45 min wait. Moments later another couple came in, told the hostess they had no reservations but wanted to say hello to the owner. They were seated in 2 minutes. 10 min later the exact same thing happened. We will never return here again!

“gourmet at its best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

the service was excellent, table setting was perfect, food was tasty, the only suggestion is the atmosphere, music maybe? it just seemed dull and too quiet. It is pricey but worth it especially for a special occasion which i am sure they will help you celebrate

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I went to this restaurant with a group of women to enjoy a cooking class taught by the owner, Michael. Michael is charming, fun and knowledgeable in addition to caring about his customers.

The restaurant was closed except for us, during the class. Michael showed us how he prepared the chicken for our chicken dish, the preparation of the truly delicious scallop potatoes and the julienne vegetables. For dessert, he showed us how to prepare Bananas Flambe. Yum!

Along with the meal, the wine steward paired the food with two kinds of wine which were both very good.

We were able to meet Michael's wife so it was like eating in their dining room. We felt at home.

For the single ladies......there's a cute chef in the kitchen that a little birdie says is single.

This is truly a great place to go for a special occasion or for a very nice night out. Make reservations.

“Great time, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We met up with friends who had been here before. Started early at 5 when they open and found they have an early bird special from 5-6 that included two courses and wine, 4-6 items to choose from. Everyone had a great meal, loved everything. Wine was included and good as well.

“Great Italian Food in SW Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The food was excellent with lots of different items to choose from plus over 10 specials. Atmosphere was nice but it is in a random location...don't let it scare you. If you want a great Italian meal, homemade pasta and tons of unique options then go check out this place!
