“Great Tiramisu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Good Italian restaurant, brick oven for pizza and calzones. Salad bar is small and most premade salads have some kind of meat (usually ham) in them. Two kinds of soup if you are a vegetarian check what stock they used, some look vegetarian but have chicken stock. Salad bar is free with
your entree. Husband loves their chicken parm and lasagna (loaded with meat). friends always get spaghetti with mushrooms and meatballs. I like the portobello ravioli (vegetarian). Leave
room for dessert. As their tiramisu is the best in Florida.

The salad bar was very good. The soup was excellent. The service was friendly. The pizza was great ( i like thin crust)
The cost is reasonable.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Small place, nice little salad bar, great food and great service. The wait staff helped each other to take orders and deliver food and drink because a larger group came in when we did. That is usually a sign of a good restaurant, because they care about the customer. Good selection of food on the menu. Everything came to the table hot out of the oven. Don't miss this place, it is well worth it. We would go back again for sure.

“A little tast of Italy.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We read several reviews about this Italian restaurant, so decided to try their lunch.
Everything was really delicious. Don't forget to get dessert. We had the cheese cake.
It was made on site and very good. We had the rasberry and chocolate one. Others were chocolate chip,plain and cherry. WOW. Every time we are in the area we will eat there.
Address is 221 West Main Street, Wauchula,Fl 33873

“Great little restaurant off Rt 17”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

You could miss this gem of a restaurant, if you weren't told by locals how delicious it is. You need to get off Rt 17 onto Main St in Wauchula going westbound and it is right in the middle of this very small town. Inside it looks just like a small pizza restaurant with plastic, red checked tablecloths , but the food is upscale, as if you were dining in a classy expensive Italian restaurant. They had a "Get 2 special" so I ordered lasagne and cheese ravioli with meat sauce for $9.99. It comes with a salad bar, which had limited items, and delicious garlic bread. The food is so fresh out of the oven, that I had to cool it down on my fork. The meat sauce has a rich tomato flavor, the cheese is plentiful and I was very pleased!
