Amazing food. Baked ziti was great! Lasagna was a little expensive for quite a small piece. Chicken alfredo was very good! Great server! We all loved it here!

A quick dropin turned out to be a wonderful discovery. We had the local grouper special which was probably the best grouper we've ever had. Absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic and the drinks even better. Highly recommend! We'll be back~

We went here Sunday night for a pizza. The place is clean, service is great, the staff is friendly, wine was on special, and the parking is available in the back. Overall - not bad. The pizza is disappointing. We were there during the special...More

A new FWB favorite. This Italian restaurant has a variety of authentic Italian dishes that pleased our pallets. There are other menu items, but each of the five of us ordered pasta dishes. The oil and bread that started the meal were the best ever...More
