Cozy, small Italian restaurant

This restaurant was a mile from our hotel, off Interstate 10, exit 7. We wanted something close by, as we were pretty tired from driving all day. Very nice waitress, food was good, & restaurant was clean. Would suggest early arrival-there was a line just after 6 pm. Reasonable prices.

Fair at best. Would not go out of my way to go or to go back. I try to visit local spots as much as possible, but this was not noteworthy.

Have been here twice when visiting family. The flounder and grouper dishes on angel hair pasta have been outstanding. Upgrade to the Greek or Caesar salad is worth it. Definitely worth the wait. Service is reasonable for a busy restaurant. Will definitely continue to go back.

We were recommended to this Cafe by the lady in reception at the hotel `Patty` and we were delighted with the food and the service. As they were really busy and it is a quite small restaurant we had tgo wait outside for about 20 minutes but there are chairs and tables so we took a bottle of wine outside... More

A wonderful local favorite, great food and service. The calzone was amazing! Servings are very generous. Would highly recommend that you make a reservation if you want to go on a Friday night. Highly recommended.

Long wait and poor service. Food was "ok" but lacked flavor. Very generic. Atmosphere is simple. If you want authentic Italian food consider going elsewhere

A family run restaurant that is beyond fantastic. The best pizza I have ever eaten. Service always excellent, and very friendly. Our favorite server is Karly, but you won't get a bad one. We love the Greek salad, along with pizza, but any meal we have had there has been very good. They don't take reservations, or call ahead, so... More

When we come to Pensacola, this is our favorite Italian place. Food is consistently good and waitress' are friendly. There is a regular menu and specials for each day of the week. And prices are reasonable.
