We have known this spot for several years now and it has served some of the best meals I have ever had. Absolutely exceptional cuisine in a relaxed friendly environment.

Wow what delicious entrees. True home made Italian pasta and sauce. I had gnocchi which was so good. Chef came out to check how everything was which was nice. Really small place. Be sure to make reservations. They had to turn away so many people...who didn’t have reservations. Parking is tight.More

When you walk into this tiny space, you'll wonder what people are thinking to write all of these wonderful reviews. Trust the reviews. This place is worth your visit. There are no more than 5 or 6 tables inside, but the pasta is hand made...and absolutely delicious. The owner is in the kitchen, and came out to check on our meals. Absolutely delicious and worth your visit!More

It was the best bolognese sauce I’ve ever had! I was so impressed that I am returning tomorrow night to try another entree

This food is as good as a human ever deserves. Appears to be totally scratch kitchen. Service was great. We had menu (not specials), they were great food. Tab with appetizers, 2 wines each, 2 entrees, tip & coffees was $170. Really outstanding restaurant

Greeted at the door by the welcoming and personal owner, Luca. He carefully walked us through the menu, proudly describing that all pasta is home made that day. We started with the fresh, on demand, Bruschetta. The flavors were vibrant and fresh and not watered...down from sitting in tomatoes for hours. For our entrees, we ordered Bucatini Carbonara, Veal Chop (Bone-in) Parmesan and Gnocchi Amatriciana. Way too much food for 2 but we had to try meals from the terrific variety of pasta and sauces. There were no clear favorites as every bite was delicious. Highly recommend.More

Fabulous! Authentic Italian food. Excellent prices, perfect ambiance, impeccable service. I can’t say enough about this small restaurant. Recommend a reservation due to small size. Wow! So good!

The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere, the owner and his staff are kind and professional. Traditional classy white cotton tablecloth and napkins. We had a stunning Swordfish Puttanesca (with onions, garlic, black olives, capers, cherry tomatoes) with a homemade linguini pasta side. The wine list...offers a wide assortment. The bill is reasonable, and the value for money is really good. A great experience.More

When we walked up the smell of the food just about caused a stampede to the front door. The staff was superb, the wine list just perfect, and the food nothing short of amazing. What a wonderful little place!

We live across the street from this place and decided to try it out. We ordered our meal for pickup and were not at all disappointed. The tagliateli alla bolognese were well prepared and very tasty. My wife ordered the oso a buco and enjoyed...it. The portions were more than adequate and the food is exceptional. We will dine at the locale next time we are here in Ft lauderdale.More

The daily pastries do change but of course croissants. Also you can get freshly made donuts and the boss will shoot some Nutella into them!
