“Will never come back..you shouldn't either!!!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

My wife's birthday. A pretty special event. They were 2 "groups"...didn't pay attention to anyone else. We ordered a bottle of wine and appetizers, so we weren't "unimportant" customers.

My wife ordered a ribeye, served without the sauce it was supposed to come with. The waiter made her feel like a fool for asking about it...surly jerk.

Ribeye was overcooked to the point of inedibility, and our waiter didn't come back to ask. He was in the other room talking to the groups there and outside to talk to somebody there. No sense of urgency or service to us. He didn't come back or even walk past so I could wave him over to complain until I was done with my meal...with my wife's plate sitting pretty well untouched.

She'd completely lost her appetite by then, so we just asked for the check. The owner came over and apologized profusely and offered to cook her another one. We were done and really upset by then and didn't want to spend another minute in there, so we said "NO" just the check please.

10 minutes later the check still hadn't arrived...and suddenly the owner shows up with a new meal for my wife. We just wanted to get the hell out of there, so we just said "NO" again, and asked AGAIN for the check.

And they tried to charge us for BOTH meals!

Sorry sweetie.

“DON'T MISS OUT!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

Italian from steak to veal parmigana, and local seafood delicacies. Desserts are not made on site; however, the selected bakery prepares obscenely delicious ones. Bravo for the selection of that chocolate cake!!
Located in a lovely shopping center, Cypress Village, in close proximity to Shula's Golf Club and their hotel on Main Street.
Beautiful ambiance in the restaurant, friendly service, local celebs visit often.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

We stumbled onto this place, tired and hungry, after taking a room at a nearby hotel. We were just looking for a decent dinner and got so much more. Great food, attentive service, nice ambiance, right price. We live far away from here but hope to get back someday.
