“Go Hungry!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We learned about this restaurant through on-line reviews and I must say, that all the reviews (excellent) were right on target. We enjoyed our first dining experience there so much that we returned for a second meal during our week stay in Ft. Myers.
On our first visit, my wife and I had the evenings pasta specials. The meals come with freshly baked rolls and either soup or salad. The Caesar salad comes with anchovies! I am not exaggerating when I say that you will not be able to finish the entire meal. In fact since we were staying at a hotel with a microwave, my wife and I actually had enough leftover for two additional lunches. On our second visit, we asked if we could share an entree and for a small sharing fee they allowed us to do so. Good wine list.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012 via mobile

This is a great place. Love it lunch or dinner. Garlic rolls are fluffy and bold, salad fresh and crispy. Portions are huge but you don't want to stop!

“Pretty Good For SW Florida”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Ate here a couple of times after initially being extremely skeptical about anything Italian in Florida.
This place was surprisingly good as far as food and service.
Their pizza Margherita is exceptional and fresh tasting with heaps of garlic, tomato and fresh basil.
Also tried their Chicken Piccata Bolognese which was creamy and a tad salty but still very good.
Their heated garlic knots are a nice touch too!
