“Good Food - Huge Portions - Great Value”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Right on College Blvd, in a little strip mall...this little unassuming Italian restaurant offers up delicious food, as well as gigantic portions, for reasonable prices. Offering dine-in - OR carry-out, the menu has a variety of offerings such as pizza, pasta, salads, and calzones. The place is rather small - seating is limited, especially for larger parties - but the food is served up fresh and hot.

Tips:

1. Go earlier in the evening to insure a seat/table - or use their carry-out option.
2. Consider splitting a meal - as the portions are LARGE. All five of us took half of our dinner home in "doggy bags".
3. Check out the specials - there are some delicious nightly specials that are "can't miss!"

Just looking for a quick bite and a glass or two of wine. We happen to stumble upon this place in a little strip mall. We were very happy to have found perhaps the best Italian food in Florida we will return!! Great service and food!!

“Excellent!! Homemade Italian food”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

If you are looking for a superb Italian place DON'T MISS THIS PLACE! I found this restaurant on Yelp. Talk about a diamond in the rough! For a small place in a strip mall this place can not be beat. After talking to the server she told me that their main place is in Ft. Myers Beach and they are both family owned and operated. Onto the food...The Sicilian Calamari is very good, the fried mozzarella is fresh, the fried ravioli excellent. Our kids had a pizza, fresh sauce and cheese, real pepperoni and homemade crust. My husband and I had the special of the day which was tortellini carbonara. This dish isn't a regular menu item but should be it was beyond EXCELLENT! So fresh, flavorful and creamy!

“Fantastic Pizza”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

It's a charming little restaurant with the best pizza I've found in Fort Myers. I can't wait to go back and try their pasta dishes because the pizza sauce was outstanding.

“Phillie cheese steak”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

We are from NY and frequently love a genuine Phillie cheese steak sandwich. You can't beat Citrola's deluxe cheese steak. Their calzones and pizza are awesome also. Would highly recommend driving out of your way if need be, just to enjoy their delicious food. I was just there yesterday but may just make the 45 min. drive again today. One small complaint, stick to bottled beverages. The fountain drinks always seem Flat. Otherwise, delicious food!!!!!
