Great food, but a few basic sauces for everything. Food was tasty and plentiful. Good location by our hotel which is why we tried it.

Recently stopped here to grab dinner after a long day at Holy Cross Hospital while staying at IL Lugano Hotel. What a delight! Real Italian food and fabulous selection. The homemade gnocchi and the mushroom pasta was out of this world! Fab service and atmosphere. Definitely a must do!

Small, Quiet, service was outstanding and food excellent. Family owned atmosphere. I will definitely return on my next trip to Fort Lauderdale. Within walking distance from the Il lugano hotel.

Owners are true blood Italians and the food is truly Italian home-cooked meals! Thoroughly enjoyed the food, the ambience and the staff! Got a chance to practice my Italian. It is located on a quaint street with lots of little shops. Good variety on the menu. Reasonably priced, great value.

This is a great experience, and you feel as if you have been beamed over to Italy. It has the atmosphere of many a neighborhood North Italian, including the active presence of the owner-managers. The menu and wine list are classic and nicely priced. Pasta is home-made. Desserts are a delight. Invent a reason to check this one out.
