I was a little surprised, but heartened, to see the restaurant was nearly full on a recent Friday in slow season. Our party of six were seated at a comfortable round table and our waitress, Ginny, was right there getting us started with drinks, bread, etc. I was also surprised to see that the large bar was packed with people enjoying a drink and many were also dinning. The wine list had a number of reasonably priced offerings, as did the list of the evening's specials. Our meals were all enjoyed... a steamed lobster, two Bronzino fish dishes...I had the Hog Snapper, my wife had the pollo di franco, and lastly a spinach lasagna.

There is a happy vibe here, with an older demographic, in this well decorated restaurant. Our bill came to $96 a couple, pre-tip. Not bad for this level of quality, in this part of south Florida.

We have been here several times and noticed that their prices went up a bit since last time. They have been there about 11 years and have a good local crowd. Always busy, so reservations recommended. The food is very good and presentation is nice. Portions are good size. The broccoli rabe and sausage pasta is always tasty.

Watch out drink prices are above normal. Can usually get a seat at the bar to eat if you don't have a reservation. Service is very good but they can rush the first seating.

Night out with my elderly mother. We eat here about 1-2 times a month. You would think the hostesses would begin to recognize us. But they always seem too pre-occupied and act as if we are a number. Not overly friendly.

We were seated quickly. We wanted to have a drink and relax but were rushed to order. So we ordered. The server seemed new. While we were rushed at the beginning, it was almost impossible to get any attention once we were served. The server seemed overwhelmed with a large noisy table next to us.

The food was good but pricey for what we ordered. By the time you get a salad and a pasta, you can easily be into the $50 range. Regardless, it was good but not over the top like it was times before.

FYI, the valet service is always great! A must for my Mom because of her walker.

We will be back, but not rushing back anytime soon......not that we will be missed!

I agree with the previous review in that the food was generally very good (above average Italian by Florida standards), as was the service. The fact that they accept reservations is also a plus. However, if the weather allows, I would suggest eating outside. The outside seating is comfortable, and the decibel level is much lower, allowing for a normal conversation with those at your table.

Although the food was tasty, I would not call it Italian.Certainly overpriced and very noisy, however the servers were very attentive.If you go with friends, be prepared that separate checks are a no-no.
