What a fantastic Italian restaurant!! Friendly staff, great server (thanks, Kelly!), the most amazing white sangria and a fabulous White Pizza! The crust was some of the best we've had! Though a bit on the pricey side, it was all well worth it. And we'd go back again when making another trip to Corolla!

Excellent thin crust pizza at a reasonable price from a real Italian restaurant. Better than other pizza only "joints" in the area. Can't wait to go back for dinner.

My husband and I ate at this Italian Restaurant and it exceeded our expectations. I ordered the Crab & Shrimp a la Penne Vodka dish and it was delicious! The seafood was fresh and I had crab in every bite! My husband ordered the Veal Parm (as he does everywhere he has the opportunity) and he was very pleased with... More

I highly recommend the Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta for an appetizer and the Crab & Shrimp a la Penne Vodka!!! It was wonderful! We had to get our desserts to go because we couldn't eat another bite when finished! Carrot cake is... More

My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic dinner at this restaurant, the best dinner we had during our week in Corolla and we ate out every night! I had the seafood diablo which was wonderful and asked the server to recommend wine to pair with it. She inquired about the type I liked and made an excellent recommendation which was... More

We arrived right at 5 when they opened for dinner, and were seated immediately. Their menu has a good variety, something for everyone. They were featuring an Italian cheese plate that night, and we ordered that as an appetizer. I was really disappointed that the server could not tell us what the different cheeses were, nor did he seem very... More

We visited with my wife's Italian parents. We arrived at 5 when they open and there was a line. We should have made reservations and needed to sit at the bar. The outside was open but it was too hot! The bar was fine and the bartender was friendly and managed to take care of us and make all the... More

Nice inside and outside seating. Apps and salads came very near same time do that's a minus. However the pace wasn't bad overall.
