The reviews for this place were overwhelmingly positive, but we were rather disappointed. We had the crab cake appetizer, and if we'd stopped there, I'd give them 5 stars: the crab cakes were excellent. Plenty of meat and just enough breading; perfectly seasoned. My wife had the seafood puttanesca, and I had the grouper piccata. The seafood in the puttanesca... More

The crab cakes were seriously amazing. I was really sad about my seafood pasta though. There really was no flavor or seasoning. I was surprised after such raving reviews. I'd like to come back and try the pizza, give this nice little place another chance.

Former Eglin Engineer owned and cooked at this local restaurant....the food was excellent when we first went...and met the owner....and the food has continued to be a local "draw" over the years...with new chef. Italian...with an adequate wine list and always fresh, dependable, luscious pastas and seafood. I rated it a 4 because IT IS VERY LOUD AND not very... More

Having lived in Niceville up until 2014, I always wanted to try this place as had heard so much about it. During a visit on business I was finally able to get a table and took mu son and his girlfriend to dinner. What a treat! This place is small and obscure. No signage and it is easy to drive... More

We tried an amazing little restaurant in what was formerly an old house. It was a little hard to find; it's set back from the road and the sign is dim. Based on that and the poorly lit neighborhood, we thought about going elsewhere, but the parking area was jammed, so we decided to give it a try. Wow! It... More

I am from NY and am very critical about Italian food, but I enjoy this restaurant. Make a reservation, because the location is small and it's hard to get table on weekends.

From the outside the building doesn't show much and it is sort of hard to find for the first time. The food is worth finding the restaurant though. Exquisite Italian food (love the mussels). Friendly atmosphere, great wait staff. I don't mind waiting for my food when it is this good!
