First, let me start off by saying the rolls in garlic butter is a must!!! You may want to make reservations. We didn't, but if it gets busy, it would be a good idea because seating is limited. I had the lasagna and salad with house dressing. The lasagna was good but so large, I will be eating it for... More

MUST try this place!!! Hidden gem! Owned by real Italians!! Very reasonably priced and awesome food! The gnocchi sorrentino was so delicious! I ate it twice during our week in Destin! The kids loved the pepperoni pizza. My husband got lupara calzone. It was huge! Two people could easily split the calzones. We had an amazing bottle of wine from... More

The family wanted to stay in so I went and grabbed some pizzas. Even though it's a sit down, we got pizzas to go. This was absolutely amazing. From the light sauce to amazing crust. The kids who didn't even want it....ate it !!! Everyone was happy and we even wanted to go back. Being on vacation it's great to... More

First, I have to thank the owner/manager for accommodating our group of seven last minute. He went out of his way to fit us in. The service was excellent. Great atmosphere. It seemed more traditional than most places. The sausage pizza was very good. Can't go wrong visiting this place.

What a lovely restaurant with delicious food! Our beautiful host was so warm and pleasant! She offered us her famous sangria complimentary and it was the best that I have ever had. My friend had the seafood crêpes and I had the shrimp and grits and both were absolutely delicious. I kept my birthday a secret until the end of... More

My family ate here on a recent trip to Destin. We have eaten here before on previous trips, and the food was delcious. This time we ordered the Garlic Bread for an appetizer. They were OK. I thought there were too expensive compared to what we got. There were five small bread knots for $6.00. We have eaten at other... More
