I researched this restaurant before going to Ft. Myers Beach. It was down the street from where we were staying and the reviews were good. Because it is the slow season, the place was not full but there was a good stream of people coming in for dinner. The wait staff were very friend and engaging. The décor was very authentic. The food is fresh and very tasty. My companion had the veal parmesan with pasta. I had the Italian beans, farfalle pasta in a garlic sauce with shrimp. You can always judge an Italian restaurant with its tomato sauce. Both dishes were excellent! Very authentic Italian. For desert, we had the homemade bread pudding with was made by our waitress. It was delicious. All in all, it was an excellent meal.
