It was a great evening , wonderful food which was only surpassed by our delightful waitress, Maria. She went above and beyond to make our evening memorable. We will definitely come again and we will be requesting sweet Maria!

This is a hidden gem tucked away in the Westin Ocean Resort Villas North. We had a party of 5 for our last night. Some of the items ordered were: Catch of the Day Shrimp Pasta Fettuccini Alfredo Their pastas are excellent. They bring Italian cooking together with an island flair that is wonderful. Most of the tables face a... More

Firstly, thanks Jim, our table was great, right in front of the beautiful pond. The dressing on the arugula salad was very good, we can taste the delicate Modena balsamic vinegar. Since it was an Italian restaurant, we decided to try the pastas. We had the lobster agnolotti and the lasagna. Both were Italian-finger-licking good. We just learned that the... More

Stop by the bar and let Matt concoct your favorite drink. Just like Cheers! Everybody knows your name and makes you feel like they're really glad you came.

We had reservations for 7, but arrived 40 minutes early, hoping to either be seated early or else pass the extra time with a drink at the bar. We decided simply to eat at the bar. Matt was one of the friendliest and most-knowledgeable bar-tender/servers ever! He could describe dishes as though they were his own special recipe and was... More

A first class Italian Restaurant. When you get tired of burgers treat yourself to a great restaurant. Traditional pasta and pizzas. Fish prepared several ways. Grilled, sautéed, baked. And a truffled mac and cheese. Great service. Fancy or not fancy attire. Wines by the glass and bottle. Good for families and duos.

Our third time here over the course of our visits and it is a very nice dining venue with good menu options. The only downside is the number of people walking thru the dining area to get from one side of the building to the other. Sitting up front near the koi pond is really nice. The risotto crusted and...

The ambience of this restaurant was spectacular along with it wine selection. We were staying at this hotel so it made it very convenient . The seafood was outstanding! The early dining option also gave us a 3 course dinner at a fixed price which was nice just at sunset. This is definitely a must every year we will be... More

The dining area is open to the outdoors looking onto a Koi pool and gardens. The orzo encrusted fish was perfectly seasoned.
