“GREAT RESTAURANT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

This small Italian restaurant was right next to our hotel so we tried it. What an absolute fantastic experience. Staff were very friendly; food was great and value excellent. We tried two other restaurants during our stay and regretted not going back here.

“Fantastic Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

This restaurant must be one of the best Italian restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. It is not flashy on the outside nor in a particularly attractive location, but the choice and quality of food more than makes up for this. My wife and I both had starters and must say the Minestrone soup is the best we have ever tasted, including our trips to Italy. The main course pasta dishes were cooked to perfection with excellent sauces complimenting the dish. The overall cost was very reasonable as was the cost of a nice bottle of wine. The restaurant was fairly busy which only reflects its popularity and I would certainly recommend making this a 'must visit' on your trip to Fort Lauderdale.

“very italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

When eating in an Italian restaurant outside of Italy, I often find that the taste is adapted to the local market. Although I usually avoid Italian restaurants abroad, since I live in Italy and eat italian all year round, I was invited here.
Must admit it has been a very pleasant surprise. The food tasted real Italian (although the size of the dish was more American), good wine and a very friendly and familiar atmosphere. I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in Lauderdale and looking for Italian cuisine
