Speaking of the olive oil (which I had to ask for) was not... More

Our server Jennifer was terrific and the menu was extensive. The wine list, however missed all the important Italion, regional wines giving choice over to Napa Valley... More

This place has an old world feel the moment you are seated. The interior is warm with dark colors yet offering the proper balance of lighting for dinning. The clientele this evening were generally older and donning better attire than the usual shorts and flip-flops. The wait staff works together when needed but individual servers keep things going in a... More

Even with a number of tables present conversation was possible. I had the escargot and lamb. Escargot was typical - garlic and olive oil, good but not exceptional. Lamb on the other hand was excellent. My table mates took equal delight in their food.

This restaurant has been a staple in Cape Coral for years and my parents favorite. Took my mother for her birthday. Its been almost ten years since the last time. Staff was friendly and menu was a hybrid Italian/German. The fruit de mar was ok. Lots of calamari but the sauce wasn't all that tasty. Others got the veal/chicken schnitzel... More

As always the food is outstanding! The service impeccable, and the owners treat us as family.. Our good friends were with us. The calamari is the best around. All 4 meals were great. 2 were from the regular menu, the other 2 were from the nights specials. No one will ever be disappointed with their meals.
