“You'll be blown away!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

My favorite Italian restaurant in the whole wide world! The Polenta al Tartufo (Truffle Polenta) is a MUST! All the pasta dishes are delicious and texture of the pasta is perfect... Never found another restaurant with such outstanding pasta. The service is great and everyone is super friendly.
I recommend this restaurant 100% you'll come back guaranteed!

“A touch of Italy on 33rd Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The food, the staff and most of the patrons were true Italian. Great service and food at reasonable prices. Glad it's within walking distance.

“Authentic, but not much variety”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Great food, but a few basic sauces for everything. Food was tasty and plentiful. Good location by our hotel which is why we tried it.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Recently stopped here to grab dinner after a long day at Holy Cross Hospital while staying at IL Lugano Hotel. What a delight! Real Italian food and fabulous selection. The homemade gnocchi and the mushroom pasta was out of this world! Fab service and atmosphere. Definitely a must do!

“Excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Small, Quiet, service was outstanding and food excellent. Family owned atmosphere. I will definitely return on my next trip to Fort Lauderdale. Within walking distance from the Il lugano hotel.
