The food is always fantastic from the starters to entrees to dessert. Family-friendly but also a nice venue for a romantic evening for two.

We had a great Italian dinner here but the server didn't even know how to pronounce the Italian words on the menu. They sure need better training. We loved the piano player - great having live music, but a little strange that she did not even play one Italian song. Would definitely go back and hope for a different server.

Employees need to be nicer and the food was decent but pricey and the atompshere was pleasant. we have only been the one time but I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying it.

Have been here many times, has often been surprisingly quiet for a real Zephyrhills gem. On the weekend, they have a pianist playing live in the restaurant, which really adds to the elegance of the place. Food is good, though there is room for improvement. Whether or not bread rolls will appear on your table is unpredictable. Good drinks selection,... More

The place can be a bit pricey, but you CANNOT beat the walk and charm of downtown Zephyrhills. Often Groupon runs a deal where two can dine pretty inexpensively. The food is good and all homemade. They have a full bar besides wine and beer. All in all, it is perfect for date night in a small town.

This is more than likely the best "real" restaurant in Zephyrhills. Quaint and rustic, right down to the wooden floors. Great wine list, full bar and great food. The service is adequate, but what you come to expect in Zephyrhills. There is nothing bad on this authentic Italian menu.

We use to take our company to this place for about the last five years and the food was very good. The people that work there are austere at best and it's always been that way. The service is fair but you'll never get a smile or polite hello from anyone. We ate there today, I had the lazagna, some... More

What a wonderful find! From our bartender Joe to our Manicotti Florentine and the Penne Pasta....fabulous! We chose to set in the new bar area and we were not disappointed. Our service was spot on and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We will recommend this to all that ask.....and even those who don't ask!

They have an early special. The food is excellent and you can't find a better value. We've tried spaghetti, chicken Parmesan, lasagna...all very good.
