We visit CG every time we are in Siesta Key. On this visit, my wife enjoyed a large portion of mussels as an appetizer. This could have been shared but I am not a seafood eater. The right combination of garlic and wine combined to have her sopping up the sauce with the warm bread on the table. I had a Caesar salad, good portion, not overly saturated with dressing as many places do. For main course, I had chicken parm, a nicely thinned breast with a side order of penne. The sauce was flavorful with small pieces of garlic to provide a kick. My wife had shrimp over spinach, she says the shrimp were perfectly cooked and the sauce was very good. Also important, Joe, our server was extremely attentive throughout the dinner. It's not cheap but well worth it.
