“Best Pizza Ever”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

My family and I unanimously agreed that this was one of the best pizzas we had ever had. We got a sausage and portobello mushroom pizza, and the quality of the ingredients was very high. One of the best components of the pizza was the sauce, and I'd recommend ordering extra sauce as it was simply amazing. The owner, Jill, went around every table, and she was so warm and really made our experience better. The restaurant is also very family friendly, and they had a kid's menu. Our one criticism is that the lasagna was of very high quality, but the portion was quite small for the price. Other than that, this restaurant is wonderful, and we will definitely be returning prior to the end of our vacation to Cape Coral.

“So glad we found this place!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Everything was so good and made from scratch. We are still siting at their table with a very full and happy tummy. We are trying find room for their wonderful desserts. We highly recommend this restaurant.

“Super food and service”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

This is our first visit whilst holidaying in the Cape. After reading the reviews on here thought we would give it a go, glad we did. Friendly welcome, sat in a booth which pleased our son. Great service from Travis, made us feel welcome and explained everything about the menu. Food extremely flavoursome both pasta and pizza, would highly recommend a visit and we will be back, one of the best authentic Italian restaurants we have visited in our trips to Florida! Owner takes a pride in the food and service which is lovely to see.

“Lovely dining experience”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were visiting the Cape from England and tried this restaurant after reading reviews. The host Jill who is appears to flip from the chef to front of house makes the whole experience fun and food really is excellent. We both had chicken parmigiana and shared a coconut cream pie that my wife said was to die for. The restaurant was full on the night we went and atmosphere is intimate.
If your in the Cape give it a try hosts Chris and Jill will make you feel most welcome.

“Best Pizza in the USA - Family owned and Love made with each dish!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

After reading all of the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to stop in and try it out. WOW!! We think it is the best wood fired pizza in the USA. The chef and owner - Jill came out to greet us and was so friendly and passionate about her mother's recipes. It is a very cozy and inviting place for the whole family. What makes this place one of a kind is the fresh quality ingredients and the love that is made with each dish. It is a family owned restaurant and each dish is served with pride and love. Very friendly atmoshphere - even met the people at the table next to our table and they shared their food. Excellent food and service. We had the best time and can't wait to come back soon to try the alligator pizza.
