For the past year that we've lived in Lake Worth we've been meaning to try this restaurant. It was highly recommended by the man that owns the cigar store across the street. Well, we were certainly not disappointed. Nino, the owner greeted us when we arrived and showed us to the table of our choice - we had no reservations.... More

This is some place we had always wanted to try and the only complaint is that we waited so long to do it. The service was exemplary and the food put me in Italy. The stuffed calamari was so good, we had 3 orders! And the veal was better than anything I've ever had before. We will definitely be visiting... More

I have had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant several times. Each time the food has exceeded my expectations. The service is excellent and the owner quite personable. Everything on the menu is wonderfully authentic and delectable. I personally enjoy the appetizers the most as I like to have enough room to sample different selections from the menu. The... More

Awesome local spot. Delicious, fresh, savory italian cooking. Everything was delicious - appetizers, entrees, dessert. We loved it all. Great atmosphere. Small, cozy and welcoming restaurant. Nino, the owner and Marco, our waiter were both great. Very professional and courteous. We enjoyed everything, can't wait to go back.

The food is really, really good, good quality ingredients, well prepared and served with pride. The menu has items that you won't see in other restaurants in the area, let alone Italian restaurants. The prices are a little high, depending on what you order but this is not your typical spaghetti and pizza restaurant. We had the elk with tartufo... More

Had a lovely dinner here with friends (for a friend's birthday). I had the special imported Burrata app and the wild boar ragout pasta - both were delicious. Everyone in our party of 5 enjoyed their meal - especially those who had the special bone-in veal chop parmiagiana.

Ate there with our good friends and liked it the minute we walked in the door. The owner and chef nino, from Italy, top not in all phases of the restaurant business. The atmosphere was terrific,very charming as we felt like we were eating in italy. Our favorite dishes were all in the pasta family with the angel hair Ametriciana... More
