Description
We are a local, niche, authentic, Northern Italian restaurant. Each evening we provide several different choices of "specials", which range from fish,meat to vegetarian and even organic options. The Chef/Owner is from Venice Italy, and has carried his passion across the seas to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Nearly 5 star reviews, across the board, are credited by his customers for his enthusiasm and sincere, down-to-earth, style. The restaurant is proud to share its Venetian heritage with South Florida.
