“What a treasure!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

The best italian in the Cape - or Ft Myers. Chef Dario and hostess Alice make everyone feel like family, the food is amazing (his 12 versjons of Beef Wellington are some of the best steaks I' ve ever had) with broad choices to please just about every appetite. Reminds me of the great mom and pop italian joints in the NE, with even better food. And Chef Dario's waltzes through the dining room singing "la la la la! are not to be missed.

“A Cape Coral Gem”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We were delightfully surprised to find great quality food, large portion sizes, excellent service and reasonable prices. I highly recommend this restaurant. I had the veal with artichokes, my husband had Fettuccine Alfredo, and both were excellent. We also highly recommend the spinach and artichokes appetizer.

“Northern Italian Excellence”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We have been dining here since 1986. This restaurant has always exceeded our expectations.
The Tuna Steak " Ariani "is so tasty, pan seared, lightly blackened and prepared with brandy and seafood stock reduction sauce on the side is wonderful.
My wife had the crispy duck with orange sauce and it was also outstanding.
You will not be disappointed with this dining experience.

“Great FOOD”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I think this place has great food, but I don't care for the location as it is in the TJMAXX parking lot. Not too nice, but the food is very, very good. Great wait staff. I did not find it cheat, but it was really good.
