“Great Lasagna and Bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We went to this restaurant based on other reviews on this site. I loved the music that was playing inside. We sat outside. We were there on St. Patrick's Day so wanted to see some of the action but didn't want to eat at a crazy bar. This place was perfect. I ordered the lasagna and it was delicious. Even the meat in the meat sauce was actually flavourful and not just substance. The bread and oil dip that was brought to the table was delicious. We ordered the cheapest bottle of white wine on the menu and it was great. Alta Luna. It tasted great in your mouth and no vinegar aftertaste when you swallowed. My husband ordered the steak and unfortunately it was overcooked. He ordered medium and it was definitely well done so he was disappointed. We didn't complain but probably should have.

“Every time I'm in south Florida I come here! Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I visit about every 2 months or so and literally come from out of the country and have to eat here each time. The chefs and staff are amazing and used to be at a different restaurant, but we found them again here. The maitre d, Peter, is amazing and is always happy to see us as we are him! Food is GREAT!! Price is reasonable and the portions are quite large. Chicken picatta, salmon, chicken Parmesan, chicken marsala are our favourites!

“Excellent food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

We ate here because we were looking for a place on Hollywood Blvd with a good selection and with options under $25 a plate. Also, people eating at a table outside highly recommended it. We were surprised to find live music inside and a very nice dining room. We felt a bit under dressed.. until we saw others in shorts as well haha. The food and service was excellent!! I got the lobster, but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the pasta dishes either. (Levi was our server and he was great!)

“Levi is awesome!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

This place is amazing. It may look dead but that's because the people don't see how amazing it is from the outside. The food is great, and the service is top notch. Levi was our waiter on Sunday January 27 and he was absolutely amazing. (Ask him to show you the card trick haha). I was taken away by how great this place really was. I will definitely be visiting again!!

“Very pleasant surprise... with a twist!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

It was January 1st. probably not a good day to go out for lunch or dinner, but we took a chance to go for late lunch, being nearby we choose to get into this Italian Restaurant, after a quick walk through the short but very cute Hollywood Blvd.
They warned us that they were short staffed, like inviting us to leave if we weren't ready to wait in order to be served... We decided to stay, and after being witnesses (That’s the twist) of continuous fights (barely able to hide) between the reduced crew we got our food...OMG everything we ordered was a pleasant surprise due to the superb taste! I would highly recommend the place. (Don’t be discouraged by the yellowness of the plastic covers of the menu…)
