“Ugh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We ate here because we wanted something low-key and easy for dinner after a busy day of sightseeing and it was across the street from our hotel. What a mistake. The service was MISERABLE. Our waitress took forever to take our order, screwed it up, and generally made herself unavailable. The table behind us was in the same boat, with a different waitress. And yet, the people at the table next to us, who arrived at the same time we did, got a great waiter and seemed to have a good experience. They left maybe 30-45 minutes before we did. So eat there at your own risk.

“Walk on bye..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Not so much. Food was fake tasting! Not a good experience. Weird, it seems people hang out. Why ? I have to find out.

“Pizza at Vilano Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I just had dinner at Puccini's on Vilano Beach. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. We ordered Margherita Pizza and a glass of wine. The pizza was great. The best part was the musician, Kathy. A very talented singer and guitar player. It really made for a lovely evening.

I hadn't been to Vilano Beach in quite a while. I would like to tell every visitor in St. Augustine to take a side trip over to Vilano. It has a fantastic retro vibe and they have done an amazing job maintaining that 50's-60's feel while updating the little beach park and pier. Oh, and did I mention the spectacular sunset?

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The pizza was great. I love that they make the pizza right in front of the big window out front. You can see that they toss the dough so you know that it is fresh everytime. Best Pizza ever. Goes nice with a draught of beer.
