The woman/hostess was rude and crude! The food was overly seasoned and tasted horrible! I had fish and it was so overly seasoned that I couldn"t eat it!

I have been here before but I will never give my money to this business ever again. The woman with the heavy accent is beyond rude and should not even work around people let alone have a business. I guess she feels they make enough...money from tourists that she doesn't have to be kind to locals who spend money year round.. We eat out 5 nights a week and have never been treated so poorly at any restaurant. The building is run down and the food is too salty, hopefully they will go out of business so a new owner can take over.More

Went with another couple and enjoyed a great dinner on the upper porch with the sun setting overlooking the inter coastal. Had the whole pompano fish grilled to perfection with broccoli rabe My friend had the same. The women had grilled plaice flounder with potatoes...and vegetables. Appetizer was a conch and fish ceviche that was excellent. Cheese cake for dessert. What a great place to enjoy a great dinnerMore

We liked this Italian seafood restaurant so much we went back. Our server was very helpful in helping us navigate the menu. She was very friendly and had many tables to take care of. The first time we visited, we had lobster bisque. It was...delicious with pieces of lobster in it. I had the lobster ravioli. It also had large pieces of lobster in it. The sauce was delicious. My husband had linguine and clams. He liked it very much. The second time we went I had surf and turf. The lobster tail was moist and flavorful. I did not care for the steak. It didn’t have much flavor and it was burnt on the outer part. The French fries were crunchy, the way I like them. Both times we had tarmus for dessert. It was moist, flavorful and lots of whipped cream on it. We will definitely go back as they have a great menu.More

A lovely Sunday evening dinner waterside! We had a table outside directly overlooking the water. Food was excellent as was our server Rachel. She was quick to respond to our questions about the menu and what she didn't know she checked with the kitchen. We...would highly recommend the octopus appetizer, the burrata and mushroom appetizer and the lobster ravioli. Our other dishes were very good but these 3 were stellar. Musical entertainment was an enjoyable albeit ecletic mix of of American oldies and some Italian favorites. All is all we are planning a return visit.More

Lovely atmosphere, excellent food, but they used to have nicer entertainment, last night they had a not so good singer indoors, but she was so loud and like I said not good, we could not speak to eachother at our outside table..I live music, but...we cane to dinner, not to hear her show...I won't be running back too soon, and when I do we will call first to see who is singing...Even our waiter said he was having a oroblem..I also hope they get better quality entertainment, this is a classy upscale restaurant, but the entertainment was trashy...We had to go out afterwards to a different place for dessert and drinks to talk...Had it been better here, we would have stayed and talked and drank...The table of 6 next to us also left to go elsewhere to speak...More

We sat outdoors for a family dinner and had a great time. The waiter (Sasha) was excellent, taking great care of us for the evening. All of our dishes were well prepared and arrived at the table in a reasonable amount of time. Our dishes...included Linguine Carbonara, Lobster Ravioli, Branzino Fish and Lobster Bisque. The restaurant is expensive, but worth it for a nice dinner out.More

Went here on a Friday night for dinner with another couple. Sat outdoors with a nice waterfront ambiance and the overall service was excellent. I had the zuppa de pesce and asked them to add a little linguini under plentiful seafood including clams, mussels, shrimp,...fish, octopus and calamari. Dish was outstanding. The women had the Maine Lobster Catalana which they both enjoyed immensely. My friend had the Chicken Portobello which he said was very nice but lots of food. I would recommend this place highly and will come back.More

I do not understand all the glowing reviews for this restaurant. We happen to meet friends who were staying in the area for dinner. First up what is quite noticeable is the overall condition of the building itself, elevator area was quite dirty. A good...coat of paint would certainly brighten up that interior area to make it more welcoming. Menus presented along with specials of the evening. Although quite warm we chose to sit outside. This was a good choice later in the evening since the music inside was quite loud and would not allow for conversation inside. The lobster bisque soup was good, but the buratta caprese was nothing less than average. A light pink tomato just doesn’t work for me, it should be ripe. Entrees consisted of the following: lobster ravioli which were very good, but as per menu description there we no chunks of lobster meat in the sauce. There were clams and “tidbits” of lobster meat, not chunks. Linguini with clams average and the filet mignon special was tasty and easy to cut. Service was friendly, but nothing notable. Sorry, but this is our first and last visit. Like I said before, I do not understand all the hype!More

This was my fourth visit to this restaurant . This is not your regular fish fry join as the name may imply. This is a proper southern Italian seafood restaurant that offers real Italian cuisine. I have been to Italy many times and this restaurant...offers dishes that rival any in Italy. It offers wonderful views and good live entertainment.More

Fantastic service, delicious food and a superb atmosphere. We sat out side overlooking the inter coastal with a pleasant breeze blowing. We started with a peach mule & a Sicilian margarita. Both delicious. Then some scrumptious lobster bisque followed by a linguini topped with middle...neck clams in a spicy white wine garlic sauce & a linguini topped with shrimp, calamari, octopus, middle neck clams, mussels & a lobster tail in a scampi sauce. Mmmmm good. Just a great place with great food.More

You will not be disappointed dining here. The restaurant is located on the marina. Very tastefully decorated. We dined on a Friday with two other couples so there two excellent female singers. We dined outside but could see dancing on the inside. The service was...excellent and the food was excellent as well. The lobster mac and cheese was a whole lobster tail atop macaroni and cheese. I had chicken marsala. It was a great dining experience.More

We had a very special night. We ate outside which was perfect. For the appetizer we had the tuna tartare which was delicious and then a ceasear salad. Had the Snapper special. The presentation was exquisite for all the food that came out. Topped our...evening with the Chocolate Temptation. Had a great waiter, Eugene. Never rushed us thru the meal. The price was worth the meal. This is a place so worth going to. Will go back there again. Thank you for a wonderful night.More

We went here last night for the first time (I don't know why we never came before) but everything was delicious. We were seated outside and our server Gino was terrific and the food was yummy. The shrimp scampi and swordfish were both outstanding. We...then moved inside to the bar area where we enjoyed the fabulous entertainment. This will become a regular place for us.More

Everything about our dining experience was perfect! This was our first time here after living in the area for 20 years. We always talked about trying it and are so glad we did! The bartenders were super nice and very informative about the menu. We...arrived a bit early so we waited at the bar and had a happy hour cocktail. We did notice they followed strict Covid safety measures inside with plexiglass surrounding the bar and seating spread out. The tables outside could've been more spaced out but I'm sure this is due to the high percentage of people requesting outside seating during these times. Per our request, we were seated outside along the railing overlooking the marina/intercoastal. There's a nice, romantic ambiance with lights strung above. They had live music as well. The singer was incredible!! What a voice! The volume was just perfect...not too loud. Service was excellent and friendly. We started with the lobster bisque (OUT OF THIS WORLD!!!) and calamari. Both fantastic! The bisque was ridiculously good and I typically only order this in Cape Cod but this was probably the best lobster bisque I've ever had. For dinner, we had the lobster mac n cheese and sea bass. Both were so good!! Portions were spot on, although I could've eaten more of the bisque lol...good thing I didn't. ;) We both thought the prices were fair for what we got. We will definitely be back and will most likely become regulars in the future!More
