The food was amazing. From the minute you walk in you get emersed in the aroma of the kitchen. It's very quaint and picturesque. The service was very personable. I'd recommend the Harlet's Cheese!!!

When we lived in Daytona, this was our favorite restaurant to eat at and would often drive down to New Smyrna just for dinner. With amazing food and an atmosphere to match, you won't be disappointed!

We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.
