Great family atmosphere and good food. Join the e-club for discounts. It is like Sunday dinner at Grandmas house.
If you have special orders if they have the ingredients they will make it for you.

“break from shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Our server Tara was awesome. She recommended getting a large size pasta so we could take it home for the boys. The shrimp fra diavlo was excellent- spicy and saucy and full of shrimp. We also had the apple gorgonzola salad and it was the best salad ever! Crispy granny smith apples and sweet walnuts made for a pleasing salad contrast. We shared a dessert (could've shared with 2 more people it was so big) The atmosphere was campy and fun and the restroom was clean! Love this place!

“Family Style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Not your typical Italian restaurant. Dinners are served family style and plenty of it. you order dinners for 2 or 4 at a time. There were 5 of us so we ordered veal for 4 and pasta for 4 which was enough for 2 nites and still had leftovers. The food was excellent and the service was good. The server will explain the concept if you've never been. The price was good for the amount of food you get. Get coupon for free pasta online before you go and just get the meat dinner as a compliment. Probably still too much food. Will definitely go back.

“Delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Our server, Mercedes was extremely nice and attentive. She gave us the heads up about the portions, so we split the lasagne and got salads. The salads were fresh and the bread was warm. The lasagne was delicious and had lots of meat. We ordered the small and could not finish it. It was the size of a brick! Great place with great food and terrific service. Located in Florida Mall.
