As a local that has been patronizing this place for years...I gave it a second shot and will not return.
Had birthday lunch with 2 guests. Tthe seafood medley special was bland, the seafood was overcooked and it had one shrimp and a few tiny scallops. The bread was cold. My guests agreed.
The waitress wasn't rude, but she was not friendly...not friendly at all. It was a chore for her to repeat the specials. She did not smile, not once. Additionally, it was a birthday lunch with presents in tow and she did not even inquire about the occasion. Rude in my opinion.
They don't have sweet tea or lemonade (my guest wanted an Arnold Palmer). Our bill with unsweetened teas were $50 for lunch. A complete waste of money.
Its a shame, as this used to be the premier italian restuarant in Vero for years. I see why they built the bar; patrons need to be drunk to palette the food.
I suggest Amalfi's its has wonderful food and great atomsphere. I would even a recommend a chain like Carrabas as their food is much much better.
