This Northwood restaurant pleased us in every way: classic Italian dishes prepared perfectly, attentive service, and convivial family atmosphere that was ideal for two older couples originally from New York. Try it for a laid-back evening.

Beautiful setting on N. Dixie Hwy. Excellent food. We began with three appetizers, all well portioned and delicious. Pork belly combination better than any we've ever had. Pork chop entree was perfectly cooked, well presented on plate. Service top notch. Expensive, but worth every penny.
