“Great Place in Downtown Cape Coral”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

The place was packed when we got there and we chose to eat outside on the deck. It was a bit chilly so the wait staff brought four propane warmers close to our table. It made for a great night!

My brother absolutely loved the Osso Buco. I thought the fried cod was okay but I would probably order something different the next time. The bread was very good and the wine was good too - nice sized pours.

“Excellent food with great service”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Just had dinner there and my wife and I both thought this was one of the better restaurants we have found in the Cape Coral/Ft Myers area. Our food was really good and the service was also very good. Priced just a little high, but large portions made it right. We will definitely go back.

“The Freshest”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

The food is as fresh as it gets. The outdoor patio is on a busy street but it's easy to get over that once you start eating. The service is excellent and very friendly. We can't wait to get back to Cape Coral to eat and shop here regularly.

“Nice atmosphre”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

We enjoyed our visit there even if it was too long. The food was very nice including a 'cup' of soup in a cup. We would recommend this place except the service was way too slow and that included trying to get a extra glass of wine because it took so long to get the entree to us.
