“Good casual dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

This is not a gourmet restaurant, but they have an outstanding bakery and it is one of the better spots for Italian food in Tampa. Definitely a great spot for a casual bite.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely delicious! Don't let the strip mall fool you, this is a high quality restaurant. We ate there after a full day at Adventure Island water park and were exhausted! The wait staff was very friendly to my children. The meal and the atmosphere were perfect. The kids pizza portions were large and tasted great. The ribs were divine. The deserts were even better! We will return and recommend to all friends who visit Tampa.

“Our Favorite Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

We like everything about this Restaurant. The place, the food and the people working there. Plus the in house baked goods and breads are fantastic. We also like the Gelato and Sorbets to leave with a light taste on our taste buds.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Amazing fresh food! The best burger ever! Love this place! Went there for lunch! Place was very busy and now I can understand why it's take the "3rd" place on a trip advisor. Amazing food!

“Very good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A great find in a strip mall, this place does not disappoint. We had the asparagus in cream sauce for appetizers and the mushroom pizza. Both were fantastic and the right portion size. The warm and crusty bread first course was good too. The only complaint was that it was loud.
