From the moment we walked in you could tell it was going to be extra special! Whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong! The portions are plentiful and delicious! The atmosphere and view are unparalleled! We actually had Christmas/Birthday celebration dinner among other visits and it was like eating a delicious dinner at Nonna’s! The chef/owner, Fabio is extremely talented, personable and always going table to table making sure everyone is happy, full, and satisfied! (when he’s not in the kitchen conjuring up his culinary creations to make you want to come back for more!) Ernesto, Andrew, Fran, and Patrick, to name just a few, sorry but don’t remember everyone’s names, always made sure our bellies were full and had a cold libation! It was sad to have to go home and cook for ourselves but know we will definitely be back! Make sure you save room for dessert! Thank you all for making our vacation one to remember! Happy New Year!

This restaurant had issues with old chef. We decided to give it a try with new chef. So glad we did!
We were there two days ago and the food was astounding! The Italian bread was crusty and robust. We needed it to sop up the sauce from our entrees! You don’t let anything this great left on the plate. We started with a Bolognese sauce that reminded us of Italy! We followed with veal lemone that melted in your mouth! Desert was an apple strudel so delicate it made your mouth sing! Homemade in house by chef! Wine was moderately priced and dining was alfresco. A great find and moderately priced.
Added bonus - walking distance from WestinResort!

We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast here, and relative to other properties it seemed like a value. It's just as nice as sitting on the veranda of some of the more expensive hotels and definitely worth the walk to save a few dollars!!

Excellent food and service
Had the eggplant Parmesan appetizer. It was very authentic and delicious. Large amount of eggplant and very little breading. The red sauce was amazing!!
For the entree had the homemade pasta with a tremendous amount of well prepared seafood in a garlic red sauce with grape tomatoes. Hazelnut gelato excellent . Chef is new from Palermo. Definitely a winner! Prices a good value for the quality of the food served! Must try it!
