“A very interesting, enjoyable dining experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

We stopped by early evening because we wanted Italian for dinner. The night we stopped, they were short a cook, waiter and bartender and a line of people waiting to be seated. While things were a little disorganized because of the shortage of staff, it only provided points of amusement while we sat at the bar waiting for a table.
When we got seated, we were severed promptly, our waitress did a great job of walking us though the menu, making recommendations as she went. Our order was served in timely fashion and everyone was very happy with their selection.
Desserts were ordered and were all home made and delicious.
All in all, we had a great meal and interesting entertainment from the staff and other diners. We will go back next time we go to Ft Meyers.

“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

I wish we had found this early in the week. Great Italian food and pastries. Large portions as well.
We have good Italian restaurants back home so we know what we're talking about.
