First time at the restaurant. Went on the referral from trip advisor. The insalada caprisi With imported buffalo motzarella was mouthwatering to say the least. The entree' of ravioli stuffed with real riggotta and black truffles in truffle sauce was amazing. We also had linguini frutti di mare, and finished both plates. The atmosphere was warm and inviting,and the staff... More

My mother, husband and I were seated at an intimate corner table. The atmosphere was superb and my mother wouldn't stop mentioning how the decor reminded her of a childhood trip to Italy. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Marco, a fabulously attentive but non-hovering waiter. Chef Nino has a true gift for cuisine; the food was all... More

The food and service were phenomenal. The restaurant was very charming and the ambiance was delightful. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to accommodate us without a reservation. I only regret not having room for dessert.

Nino, from Capri, owns and operates this little gem in Lake Worth. This busy little hotspot is hopping during the winter "season". Reservations are a must. Home made pastas, catch of the day, Italian classics, salads and vegetable side dishes. Desserts -- the tiramisù is a must -- are excellent. Great wine list. Great service. Ask for Nino who is...

My husband ordered the fried calamari, which I did not share it as it was rubbery and the sauce was tart. He also ordered the homemade... More

Thought the food was very average and over priced, and service was poor, Our waiter was from Italy and I felt like I was in one of those touristi Italian joints where they try to skin you, everything he suggested was with the highest price on the menu .I asked if he could advise me on a bottle of wine,...
