When it first opened it was really good, a bit pricey but one in a while it's good to splurge. Because we were on a tight budget we began to "take out" the food. We noticed it was not as good as the beginning, the next thing we know it's shut down. Then another Itlilian restaurant opens and that one... More

This restaurant no longer exists. There is a new restaurant called Aldela's that is supposed to be opening soon in this location.

A place to have a nice meal , this isn't the place . Uncomfortable chairs in a fast food environment. Then to have to listen to the soup kitchen (owner) berate his staff in front of the customers is absurd. Even if the food was good (it wasn't) you wouldn't enjoy it because of the arrogant owner. Don 't give... More

This place doesn't even deserve to be rated.....if anything it should be berated. The owner Gaetano ( I won't print his last name...it's not worth it)...is a liar and a thief. We had been to the restaurant where my now husband had proposed to me. We decided to have a small intimate affair ...and we thought where better than the... More

Go here if you like domestic violence and crappy food.... I think its closed down now as it should be.. Went on mothers day and the 60 yr old owner was in a fist fight with his 18yr old wife.... Not exactly what I had planned for Mom on her day... and, the food came out wrong and unrecognizable..

Was craving Italian food and hadn't been there in a while. I didn't feel like cooking myself so we decided to go. The first thing I noticed is the Calamari which used to be very good, was processed rings, which were awful. I had the Veal Special, and my wife the Salmon special, and they were okay. Not great, and... More

We entered and were seated by a friendly waitress who took our drink order and brought bread and then made the dip with oil spices etc for dipping. It was the best I have ever eaten. I ordered Lasagna which was so good. My husband ordered chicken Parm. We had salad and cannoli to finish the meal. Everything was excellent.... More

This place won the best Italian restaurant in Hernando in 2011 and 2012 and after my first visit last weekend, I am really puzzled by this. Food was not that great and clearly did not worth the price we paid. The time we were there, the chef-owner was walking around from table to table bugging customers which made me wonder... More

We saw the review for this restaurant so we decided to give it a try. We were seated outside on the patio becuse they could not accommodate our party of 6 inside. Not a problem as the weather was pleasant. The food was decent, not anything spectacular. The meatballs that they say are world famous are just average. My meatballs... More

I ate there with friends and I thought the food mediocre at best and it was an expensive lunch for what I had. Will not go there again ever
