Best food ever. Pleasantly surprised and delicious. Don't let the outside surprise you. Don't like the plastic plants. Bread and food was amazing. Authentic Italian cuisine and good prices. Spaghetti carbonara and other pastas were excellent .

The olive tapenade app was delicious. The Tribeca Bread was out of sight too. So much better than other Italian spots. Chicken Piccatta and Papparedelle with sausage was scrumptious. Service was good to, very open and friendly. Not a great wine list tho, best on the list is the Mazzi Campoforine, but reasonably priced food and wine compared to Chicago... More

Don't miss this gem of a restaurant. Have been there many times. There is a new owner and the food and service were spectacular. Don't miss the Italian Shrimp and grits. Love this place.

Good service and an accommodating kitchen. We were a group of 8 and was having trouble finding a place to eat dinner near Surfside. The server was friendly and the food was good.

We had been wanting to try for awhile and decided to go on a slow Tuesday evening. We sat at the bar since it was really comfortable and we weren't sure at first what we wanted. My husband had veal and I had a dish with Sausage and pasta. Bartender, Maryann was great and Stephen, the owner was very nice.... More

On the advice of friends we decided to go here for an early supper. We found the restaurant to be clean and the staff friendly. We had some questions and the owner/chef came out to speak with us. He was very friendly and accommodating. We really appreciated that. The scallop appetizer was delicious. Very good red sauce, meatballs and chicken... More

Real homemade for dinner hubby had the chicken Parmesan said it was the best he's had since we have lived in the south. I had the shrimp wrapped... More
