The rack of lamb was cooked to perfection as was my wife’s veal parmigiana! Excellent service from Valentino! Definitely a must visit while visiting Marco Island!

Stopped in after reading reviews,had grouper island style and the fish was excellent. Service was very good. Decided to go because they have 20 percent off for fall. Probably one of the best dinners we’ve had on Marco Island
