Fantastic cuisine, knowledgeable and friendly staff! The best part is that if you were driving by and didn't pay attention you may pass right by. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation. Enjoy

No menu, very pricey, the food is what they make for the day, but some of the best food I’ve had in South Florida. New owners took over a few years ago with the originals retiring, but retains the same chef and dishes. If you...More

Some time ago, in Rome, we decided to stop for lunch and took a flier on a one room joint. I don’t remember how we even knew that we could eat there. Only two tables. We sat down and a lady in a house dress...More

Under the recommendation of some friends we tried this place. When we drove up our first thought was that we were in the wrong place. It isn’t anything flashy and not in a glitzy part of town. The tables are cafeteria style and chairs are...More

Went for a quiet anniversary dinner but was very dissapointed. The sauce was very under cooked and had way too much sugar (not that sugar is ever a good thing in sauce). I call it lazy cooking. The appetizers were pedestrian at best and the...More

This is a wonderful little place in Pompano Beach. It is truly more than a place for pizza, the chef/owner has made this a warm and friendly atmosphere with no formal menu. They will make pretty much whatever you like and they have some specials...More
