Warm welcoming personal dining. Steve the owner/host once again blew us away. The food was excellent but the attention we received was 5⭐️. Steve paired wine with each dish- so perfect. We tried 4 different Italian wines. The atmosphere is cozy and warm. We couldn’t...have asked for asked for anything more, great night out. Make reservations to get a table.More

Excellent food and wonderful service! Our party had onion soup (not a traditional onion soup but it was fantastic), salads, filet, chicken and lobster ravioli. Everyone thought their meals were exceptional and delicious!

This was our first time to this restaurant and it won’t be the last. The owners were very friendly, the food felt like it was family recipes and favorites. We started with the onion soup and the goat salad, the special of the day. Both...were great. We both open for a surf and turf, mine had a crab cake and my husband had lobster. Both were so good that my husband ordered an a la carte crab cake. We are very picky about crab cakes and these tasted just like the ones in Maryland! The steaks were also superb. We finished our meal with an apple tart that was super good!More

It was The onion soup is not my cup of tea , it was a large single onion , no cheese or...croutons and not as described in reviews as wonderful. I had the hangar steak and he had a steak also - not great either We probably not returnMore

We’ve dined twice at Pozzi’s, most recently last week, and both were exceptional. I had the ribeye and asparagus, my wife and daughter had the cobia special, and it was outstanding. Family-operated restaurant, service is friendly and fast, great wine list. Wish Pozzi was in...Nashville. We’re very critical of restaurants; Pozzi’s gets our highest recommendation.More

I am from the Eastern Shore, and I never really expect to get a good crab cake anywhere else. So when we saw crab cakes on the menu, we were skeptical - but hungry! So we ordered them and were AMAZED!! The crab cakes were...full of lump crab, and not much (if any) breading!! The crab was fresh and sweet, and I was transported! WOW! We’ve lived in Florida for 30+ years, and this is the first time we’ve ever had anything like this outside of the Shore. Chef paired our entres with grilled asparagus and squash with a Parmesan crisp top. (The menu calls for mashed potatoes, but that’s too heavy for the delicate taste of crab in my humble opinion). Hubby had filet and thought it was marvelous - we shared for a taste of surf and turf! So the restaurant is small - the ambiance is cozy. Reservations are helpful - we squeezed in without but don’t risk it again. This is our new favorite place!! Enjoy!More

We love the menu, the wines, the way the chef cooks to perfection to your request, the steaks, lasagna, and Maryland crab that lives up to its heritage. Prices are high, but food is very high quality and prepared well. We enjoy going as a...couple, and often take out of town guests.No exception to any of this with our recent 8 pm reservation. At 8:55 we had our plates taken away. The owner immediately followed up and instead of asking about our experience, removed all our glasses (except for the 1/2 full wine glasses) and made it clear it was time for us to go. We then got our bill, paid, gulped the rest of the wine, and left by 9:05. Sadly, it spoiled the mood totally, and was embarrassing after all the bragging we had done to our guests. DON'T accept an 8:00 reservation....they lock the doors at 9 whether you are finished or not!More

Read the numerous fabulous reviews of this little gem, off the main hub of downtown Fernandina Well, our experience surpassed the reviews! Greeted warmly by wait staff, then by the owner, menu choices are limited, indeed, but cover all the basics The owner explained each...dish & she was quite accurate, veal osso bucco was the special, delicious, crab cakes-homemade & full of crabmeat Then, then, then....Tres Leche cake for dessert! Perfect ending to a delightful & delicious meal!More

This was our first time at Pozzi Bistro, which was recommended to us. It was phenomenal. Don't let it's small size and limited menu fool you. Both are organized to feature excellence. The baked brie appetizer featured a very thin-lined triple creme cheese and delicious...fruit topping. The filet mignon and flat iron steak were fabulous. Our friend ordered sushi-grade Cobia fish which he raved about. Great service. Table visit from the Chef.More

Arrived on time with friends for our reservation and were seated immediately. Onion soup was good, presentation was different from any we have ever had. A full whole sweet onion in a nice broth, only downside it is soup with very little broth. Steaks were...very good could have used a little sauce. Asparagus unfortunately was buried in the mashed potato, tasty near the less. Crab cakes were were “the best I’ve ever had”, though on the small side. Extensive wine list, but not up to date. Several wines not available.More
