Seriously y'all.... The food here is delicious! We had pizza, Alfredo, Artichoke Chicken and Tortellini. All were excellent!!! The dessert and the magic show were an added bonus. Definitely a 'must' on the island!

The wait was a bit long, and we were getting hangry, but the food was sooooo good. Three of us split the chicken parm. and the manicotti. Best I have ever had. For dessert we had cannoli and tiramisu and both were amazing. Richard was our waiter and he was awesome! Great experience and wonderful food!

The pizza was really good. The sauce was a little sweet for me but overall really good food. The cheese and olives were great as well

Visited midweek, short wait at 6pm. Kids had pizza, adults all had different entrees. My Chicken Marsala was very good but a tad too sweet. Everyone was happy with the meal, draft beers were very good!

Me and my husband love to find good pizza places. This place fit that bill. We got the toasted ravioli and it was wonderful. Then we had a pizza split with the chicken florentine and the Roma. It was amazing! The service was great too! I saw other tables pasta dishes and they looked great too! We will definitely return... More

The food was delicious. I especially liked the bruschetta. Good portion sizes and the wait staff was terrific! The only complaint I had was the wine could have been a little cooler in temperature. We plan to eat there again before returning home.

We came to celebrate our sons 11th birthday, as he loves chicken fettuccine alfredo. We dined on the patio as there was a long wait for inside. Service was above average for what I would consider island service, although for our one visit there were longer than normal times between drink refills, checking on orders, etc. My wife ordered a...

Someone should tell them there is such a thing as too much garlic and more butter isn't better. My least favorite place on the island.
