So it was in walking distance so we tried it. After reading all the wide-ranging reviews thought we'd give it a try - everyone has an off night right? To start, our server seemed annoyed the minute we sat down, no smile, just what could she get us to drink but they were out of lemonade and all carbonated beverages (something was broken) so what else did we want? (yep that was the attitude) We ordered a dinner special, a pizza and chicken parm to share amongst our table. The special was good but the parm was nothing to write home about and the pizza was an absolute disaster. I would have sent it back but by then my tweens who couldn't drink what they wanted, and then waited 50 minutes for a pizza that was basically cardboard. We don't mind thin crust, but it was charred, dry and awful. You could of snapped it in half like a graham cracker. I would not go back here again.

It was a very average italian restaurant. When you're on vacation with so many choices of restaurants, its a bit disappointed to choose one that was only "so-so". Service was better than the food.

Unlike other reviews, service was excellent, reservations are recommended, wine list was decent and not too expensive, but the food was average...nothing special about it which was a let down. Others we know have had similar experiences. We sat on the front porch, but in the hot sun and facing the road which was not pleasant.

This establishment offers seating indoors or on an outdoor porch overlooking Gulf Blvd. One rarely has to wait for a table. Service is also available at a few small tables in the lounge, as well as at the bar. Service is prompt. The quality of the food is some what inconsistent and the menu items are over priced for the quality and size you get. Beer and wine only.

if you want something other than seafood and want to get off the beach, this is a nice place. They have a large patio and oven baked pizzas. The mozzarella/tomato salad was terrible (they should take it off the menu until tomatoes are in season)
