My family and i wanted a nice Italian dinner and we saw all the positive reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give this place a try. The place is a cute set up with old video games (i haven't played Asteroids since i was a...teenager... and it showed, unfortunately!) When we got there, we we told they were short staffed in the kitchen and would not be able to serve entrees, just the pizza and subs and salads. We appreciated their honesty and decided to eat there. We are glad we did! The staff was super friendly, talkative and attentive. We shared the César salad and bruschetta. Both very good. My daughter had the meatball appetizer as well as the pizza my wife and i ordered. The pizza was fantastic!More

We loved it, we went twice. Delicious pizzas, pastas, philly cheesesteak sandwich and desserts! The attendants were so nice and kind! And to finish this comment, the best for those who loves the 80’s: You can play for free various acardes from 80’s and 90’s...(Listening Billy Idol or The Smiths, of course!) My kids (and I) loved it!More

Fantastic food. I had the grouper reuben and it was delicious. We had the meatball appetizer with very flavorful red sauce. My family had the pizza which was made with fresh ingredients and lots of basil. The prices are great. We will definitely come back....The video games are fun too.More

This little hole in the wall has service that rivals any five star restaurant. The Manager has done what few restaurants have accomplished either during Covid or afterwards. She has created an amazing service team that provides white glove service along with food that will...keep you dreaming of your next visit. We enjoyed two pasta dishes that were beautifully presented and that were beyond generous in portions. Had take out pizza, a salad and other dishes earlier in the week that were also spectacular. Fantastic dinner and even better service.More

Twice, we lunched on delicious pizza at Bayside Gourmet. The employees were cheerful, helpful. It is quite small and was crowded.

I travel for a living and eat in restaurants all over the world so as a self-proclaimed foodie and amateur chef, I have plenty of experience giving feedback about food, atmosphere and service. So let's start with service. Boy Scout Brian was our waiter and...he did an excellent job. They close at 9:30pm so with us walking in at 8:30pm, you sometimes expect the staff to hurry you out so they can go home at night, but NOT Brian. He was attentive, social and quite frankly, I would go back just based on that part of my evening! The atmosphere is waaaaaay casual ... and if you dine inside, you kind of get the feeling you are sitting in someone's personal kitchen. The chef and line cooks don't interact with you but that is just how it feels. There are cruise ships that charge a premium for an experience that we got only for the price of the food. The food ... now we are talking! From the Caesar salad to my Tortellini, everything was perfect. I'm pretty picky about my caesar dressing - sometimes it's too heavy and sometimes it's too light. The balance of flavor kept every bite the "perfect bite". As for the tortellini ... I don't eat meat so I asked if they could take out the prosciutto and serve it with just the spinach and onions. DONE! I really appreciated that the chef took the time to add a little extra red onion to the dish to give it the "pink" color and the illusion of prosciutto in the dish. Side note, my grandma always taught me that my food should not only taste good but should be color coordinated, so ever since then I LOOK at my food and the presentation. The wines by the glass are an eclectic selection that is different than what is up and down US1 in the Keys ... perhaps a reflection of the owner or the chef? I don't know but I appreciate the offerings. Highly recommended!More

Don’t judge a book by its cover. The place from the outside doesn’t look like anything special. They sat us on the back outdoor area. The food was fantastic with huge portions.

Honestly can't tell you if they offer a particular soup. If this is a significant issue I would call them directly.
