This is a somewhat out of the way place, but was suggested by the host at our guest house. The food was quite good, and very good portions. Two people sharing a dish would not be out of the question; we ended up taking the leftovers for lunch the next day. The house wine (decent) at $8 was probably the largest by the glass wine I've ever had, twice the amount I've had at many other places.

We still have a lot of other places in Key West to try on future visits, but this was clearly a good choice for dinner.

We started with the Portabello/goat cheese Martini appetizer----ahhhh-mazing! The bread was fresh & hot. The mahi-mahi was tender, a generous portion but more importantly....expertly prepared! My husband had a clam-pasta dish that he routinely orders at Italian restaurants but this time he was ecstatic---probably the est he's ever tasted. The garden setting with twinkle lights gave it ambiance you don't find down on Duval Street, and the wine was reasonably priced so you don't hesitate ordering by the bottle. Thanks to Miles, we were also bowled over by the service! Thanks for a great meal & experience!

We had stopped in for lunch and ordered a pizza. The first one was burned, so it took quite awhile for the pizza to arrive. In the meantime we had the bruschetta appetizer. It was tasty, but not great. The pizza was a bit of a disappointment. The sauce was strangely sweet and the crust was not that good. Pizza seems like a basic item for an Italian restaurant, so although we did not sample other menu items I would have my doubts about them since the pizza wasn't so great. there are better places to eat, so I would skip this one. We were also seated under an acacia tree and things kept dropping off the tree on to our table (and food).

Great place to relax and enjoy a nice Italian meal after a tiring walk from one end of Duval Street to the other, being a little away from the noisier places, inside a mall. Made our Key West trip doubly enjoyable. Food comes in large portions in the traditional Italian way. The place has a nice outdoor patio, and just like the staff, even the birds around are friendly.

We ate outdoors one evening in a very romantic setting. The food was delicious and the friendly service by Jeannette Louise made for an evening we will long remember.
