Pleasantly surprised by this local gem. The menu choices were great. We decided to stop in based on a recommendation. The accommodating staff and local fresh ingredients used with every entree was terrific. We especially enjoyed the Clam Pizza as an appetizer/starter followed by house salad with grilled chicken and beets. We will definitely visit again!

We couldn't figure out what some people found so wonderful about this place. when we walked in, I did not care for the stale odor nor the acoustics, and yet still thought we would try. The menu along with the specials is difficult to understand what was so "special". The fresh salad had leaves that were brown and there wasn't... More

Disclosure -- I'm a favorite of this resturant. For this summer (2017), half price off every day: pasta meals M&W, pizza meals T&T, wine bottle F,S,&S Then to blow your mind: every day local-caught fish (Mahi, Grouper, Cibao) for $15.95. Excellent kitchen. You'll enjoy what & how they prepare meals. Had pasta w/gulf shrimp & Stroganoff w/broad noddles. Both excellent.... More

This restaurant features locally sourced ingredients and carries it off very well. Creative flatbreads, roasted chicken, and a blackened fish sandwich were all appreciated and well prepared. Desert prices looked quite high, but portions looked huge. A nice change from chain restaurants.

We enjoyed a nice meal and good wine here. The chef was flexible in swapping a couple ingredients at our request. Food was good, not outstanding. Great service from Brian. Love the atmosphere and the wonderful aromas from the kitchen.

Despite the mixed reviews we decided to give them a chance. Not again! My husband ordered the Red Snapper dinner. The snapper was a small piece and dried out in the awful breading. Hostess said it was 6oz piece of fish they received today. Well it was not fresh and with all the breading not much fish. For lack of... More

This is our favorite restaurant to visit when in Naples. A great selection of both vegetarian and non vegetarian options. Love that ingredients are locally sourced. Hands down the best handmade pasta in area. The early dining menu is a great deal.

We had the Lenten Fish Special ($15.95) comes with two sides of your choice. They start you out with humus and raw veg's, that was ok. The fish was something that I had never heard of but I must say it was good. The wines were a little on the pricey side. I'm sorry I just don't get the farmer... More
