Ordered a pizza for take out one evening while we were staying at the beach on Casey Key and were very disappointed. The pizza looked like it should taste good but it did not. It was a little deformed and the toppings had slid around quite a bit. Could have overlooked this if it had tasted good. The crust was... More

We returned once again, and still the fantastic food and service. The portions were great and the value and taste as normal. This is our favourite and soon the place was full, and this was out of season, so the place must being doing things right. Keep up the excellent service and outstanding food.

Always been great, however pizza was over cooked with almost burnt cheese. Sauce had a lot of oregano which over powered taste of tomatoes. Hope this was just a bad night for the cook.

We have driven by this place countless times and never noticed it. Our friends suggested we try it and we were so pleased. The interior is old, dated and not much to look at, but don't let that fool you. The food was excellent. The service was attentive. We all had a different italian dish and each raved about our...

Ordered the veal parm and was very satisfied. Wife had the lasagna with a meatball. Also very satisfied. Indeed, we had it tonight for dinner as well. They give large portions with delicious sauce and great appetizers and salad. You want great Italian, this is the place!

We have visited this restaurant before and have not been disappointed. It was the same on our last visit when we were again astonished by the quality and quantity. This time our party partook of lasagne and seafood pasta in a rich creamy sauce and bolognese. A real treat for Italian foodies.
