“Wonderful Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

We had the calamari and shrimp with linguine, it was one of the best seafood dishes I have ever had - outside my husband's, that is. Great views of the beach, the restaurant is right on the strip across from the public beach. The burgers were tasty too. All around, nice place to eat.

“Not what it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Less than average food quality. Forced gratuity means less than average service. Used to be a fantastic place. Now off the grid to the low side. Did I mention the food is less than average? A lot less.

“Average Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I loved its location this place faces across from the ocean with great views, for people watching and I imagine for night life. The food was surprisingly good and plentiful, the restaurant had a great band playing, and service was also great.

“great italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a great Italian restaurant along Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd in Fort Lauderdale. Every thing we ordered was presented beautifully.The shrimp scampi was more than adequate and very delicious. The pasta was al dente and the scampi sauce was perfectly spiced. My wife had a salad with plenty of shaved parmigiano reggiano cheese on top.My nephew had a giant rib eye steak that was perfecty broiled and accompanied by fried sweet red peppers and roasted potatoes.The Barolo sauce was absolutely scrumptious.The ambiance was sort of romantic since it was open to the sea. The service was good. I will definitely go back again and will surely recommend it to my family and friends. I've been to Italy 26 times and the food was as good as any I've had there.
