Table of 4 outside dining. Johna was our waitress...and she was spectacular. Patient yet attentive and friendly. Would go back just based on her service. Food was very good and enjoyed having an after dinner drink at the bar.

We had diner here tonight with our brother and wife who are living in Lakewood ranch while the new Major League Football is started. They have been many times and loved it. We are from the Chicago area and know good Italian restaurants and this could compete with any we have. The Chicken Parmesan was old school and a very... More

The service was good. The waiter was polite. That's about all that I can say on the positive side. For a restaurant that offers Italian food, what we received was not even worthy of a fast food restaurant. I ordered the chicken Parmesan which should not be a difficult meal to prepare. The chicken was tough, overcooked and tasteless. The... More

We’ve been here several times because it is convenient. The wait staff is really nice and we love the outdoor tables, flowers on the tables - nice touch. The little corner they are on is a pleasant spot. But man, the food just is forever a disappointment. Caesar salad is too much lettuce on a too small plate with stale... More

This restaurant will not get rave reviews, the food is ok but not spectacular. It does have a variety of dishes and pizza and the prices are mid range, a little high for a place like this. The big plus here is their outdoor dining and music in the late afternoon and evening. The outdoor cafe is pleasant, specially late... More

I've been here at least 10-15 times. While I wouldn't say the food is EXCELLENT, the location and the ambiance are. Live music on the patio every night.... Friendly people walking by who all stop to say "hello" -- this restaurant is the heart of Lakewood Ranch. And you can't go wrong with the spaghetti and meatballs!

My company held it's 2nd annual Christmas Party here. We began our night by enjoying cocktails served by our fantastic bartender, Sandy. She always had a smile and was extremely friendly. The Manager, Lyndsay- is a real gem! Very accomodating- she went over and above our expectations! Our server Chris, was just as awesome! He was "on the spot" the... More

Great buzz about this place, always a good atmosphere. Pizzas to order, any way you like them. Good selection of wines, have a taste before you buy. Watch out for the liqueurs, they pour them big!
