Went there wy family and have a marvelous time. Best pizza my kids ever had! We had Richard as our server and he made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere reminded me of a up scale NYC bistro!

It's about time! The new chef is fantastic bringing real Italian cooking back, but you have to go on certain nights. Food not so good or consistent during the week. Had ordered a few specials and the home made soup is mouthwatering. I wish i could take some to go. Good call management. Chef joe you have us hooked again.

If you're in for a pretty good people watching place on Lakewood Ranch this is about the only place that has that. Unfortunately the food can't compare. Eaten there three times and the only thing i recommend is the salad.

We have tried this restaurant four times in the past and only had one good meal. The first two times for dinner; poor selection of pasta, terrible appitizer, small portions & average service. Third time we ordered a meatball sandwich which was excellent and sat outside near the bar. Last time we went there after the movie to enjoy the meatball sandwich and it's no longer on the menu. So order two salads which were very disappointing. The portobello/goat cheese was served with vinegar pickled portobello mushrooms not freshly grilled. The cesar salad was old lettuce. So therefore, we will not be back. Our neighbors recently walked out due to very poor service!

I didn't like this place two years ago but someone said it go better. Well, it didn't. Anyone who rates this place as good Italian food must normally eat at Mac Donald's. Its a shame because they have a good location and Lakewood Ranch needs some more good places to eat.
