“Food is AWFUL”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had the margaritas - no taste of alcohol. Ordered the seafood pasta dish - nasty and the shrimp still had the shell! Pasta was very overcooked. Overall awful. Probably one of the worst italian dining experiences in a LONG time. People working there are not nice and unprofessional.

“Even the beautiful beachview couldn't save this dinning experience from disaster.”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

We were seated by a friendly hostess, but the good service ended there. Our waiter Diego was inattentive and rude. We started with the meatball appetizer which was mushy and bland and the sauce was sour. The chicken in our main course was rubbery and tasteless. When we complained about the food we given an attitude. If you want better Italian food and better service then I suggest dining at your local public high school.

“The Atmosphere & Staff are Great!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our waiter was excellent! I wish I caught his name. We were there this last Wednesday night with co-workers. It wasn't very busy inside where we sat but there were more tables filled outside. I liked the garage doors open over looking the beach. This is a good place with the highlights being the atmosphere and our waiter. The food was good and I think you'll be happy. Just don't expect the most outstanding meal you've ever had.

“Good margaritas, nice view”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We had an excellent view of the beach during lunch time. It wasn't crowded as they just have opened. Calamari was fresh. We ordered their 2 for 1 special margaritas (mango&strawberries). At first, we thought the drink was a bit light on the alcohol but as you drink this gigantic glass, you will definitely feel a bit tipsy. Their burgers were good primarily because they've marinated the meat that is something different. Servers were friendly, the service was a bit slow but we did not mind because of the beach view.

“Enjoyable atmosphere infront of the beach / Ambiente agradable enfrente a la playa”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Italian food was very good, the girl who served my dinner was very kind, fast and always smiling. Price average. Definitely I would return for sure to this restaurant. Show was very good with a guitar player and a girl dancer

La comida italiana esta muy rica aquí, la chica que me atendió fue muy amable, eficiente y sonriente. El precio es promedio. Es un hecho que definitivamente regresaría a este restaurante. El show con un guitarrista y una bailarina fue muy bueno.
