“great food but busy busy busy - thus the service suffers a tad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

we enjoyed our meal here, but we had to eat outside due to the busy-ness and it was a bit cool. service was a tad slow due to the busy-ness, but looked to be as good as it could be w/ what staff they had. loved the food, a tad high for pizza, but not bad. we got side salads and slices of pizza - my wife didn't even finish her single huge slice! seems to be a popular local place as well, we saw many that talked like they were local, and saw several ball teams come through.

“Nice place, good food and prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We ate here 3 times during our stay. Waiter was very friendly. The talking parrot next door was fun if you sit outdoors. The pizza was good. We also had several different types of sandwiches. I would recommend this place because of good food and a good value for your money.

“Life is too short for a bad pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Really good pizza, and the other food is far better than you would expect from a pizza place.
The vongole with spaghetti was great as were the seared scallops with risotto, and you have to try the veal chops. The sauces are brilliant and all the ingredients were really fresh, like the spinach salad and the to die for home made cannoli
This is not a fancy Italian restaurant in looks but the food is as good as one. Good value.
Steve, the owner, runs a tight ship.
Became our favorite restaurant on St. Pete Beach and in 2 weeks holiday we at there 4 times, each time better than the last. Wish we had discovered it sooner.

“Great Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This was our second time here and the Pizza was just as delicious. Recommend calling your order in as it will take 30 minutes to get it. The price was good and the Pizza was delicious.
