“Hidden Italian Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

Expect a wait, especially on a Saturday night. You may notice that overall the hosting and service are mediocre at best but the food was very well worth it. We waited for a table for about 30 min, but the service was not good at getting tables cleared and prepped fast. 3 empty tables sat for about 5 min before anyone cleaned them off and could sit us. Our server was good, but not great. However, the bread they serve was fresh and delightfully delicious - warm, right out of the oven. They serve it with the typical garlic and olive oil, ask for Balsamic vinegar for an even better kick. I ordered the tilapia or white fish with capers, tomatoes and olives, and the fresh was incredibly fresh, flaky and perfectly cooked. My husband ordered a steak dish which was cooked to medium-rare perfection. You don't get many sides as you do at some places, but it was enough as is, side salads and vegetables.

Service was somewhat slow and of course when you needed them, they were hard to find. However, we were very pleased with the food and overall value, and we would consider eating there again.

“Good Italian Food at Reasonable Prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

This is a very busy place-and rightfully so. The selection of Italian dishes is extensive and authentic. There is a decent wine list with Italian selections to compliment the food. Portions are large so there will be leftovers! I believe that this is a very nice place with good food at a very fair price. My family always dines there when I visit the West palm area.

“OK Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

The food was ok Southern Italian. It seems that we were charged more than the menu (speicals) price but I didn't notice till after we paid and were gone. Also one of the orders was incorrect, but we let it go. Perhaps the waiter wasn't paying attention? At any rate, we enjoyed our meals. Average is ok!

“Good value; not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

It was a busy Saturday night and we were seated outside which was comfortable. Service was friendly but most 'thank you's' were answered with an amateurish 'no problem' instead of a more professional 'you're welcome'. Food was good but presentation was casual; salads came in a cereal bowl instead of on a salad plate; that made it a little harder to add the dressing which always comes on the side; ditto for the pasta side dish....in a little bowl instead of presented in concert with the main course. Coffee cups have the world's smallest handles; a nice mug would have been nice. Food was hot but served a bit before our salads were finished. Veal could have been pounded just a tiny bit; 3 pieces could have been a tiny bit more tender and been presented a bit better with just a little more effort; sauce was fine. Challening location next to Tires Plus but they are popular and nice people. Always room for upgrades. Bathrooms could use a little more policing.

“Excellent Italian food at a moderate price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

Having eating here dozens of times over the last 4 years, I can say always a wonderful meal served by staff that paid attention to our needs.
This family run business, has folks in the kitchen that know what they are doing.
The location is a little tricky to find having a location in a strip mall on Southern Blvd but the front faces State Rd 7.
