Ate at bar during happy hour. Shared Eggplant rollatini, Caprese salad and Margherita pizza. Food was delicious. Bartender was very attentive. Wine pours were generous. Gave us sample of Flavio's homemade limoncello. Great value for money! Will definitely return next time in Siesta

This is a must for us. The pizza is like in Italy, not sure about the other dishes as we only have pizza and appetizers which are so delicious. We enjoy sitting in the bar area as it is so lively.
