“Wonderful Italian”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We vacationed in St. Augustine and ate at this outstanding Italian restaurant. It is like eating with your family. The owners are warm & loving people that seem to enjoy cooking for their customers. The food was well prepared. We're sorry we live too far away to be regulars at this restaurant. We would go out of our way to eat here again. We can't say enough good things about it.

“Family Italian”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

A very charming restaurant with authentic old world Italian straight out of New York. Our server, who is also an owner and cooks her own recipes as well as family member's recipes, was as much of the experience as the food was. I can't wait to go back and try the other dishes, it was very had to make up our minds. And we will definitely need to go back for her homemade desserts, especially the tiramisu!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review! I really enjoyed serving you and am glad you enjoyed the experience as well. AS we are usually pretty quiet during afternoon hours I am happy to have the opportunity to serve guests and chat about our family recipies and the wonderful people that passed them on to us. We are very proud of the heartfelt reviews such as yours that we have been blessed with.
We really appreciate the kind words and support of all our loyal customers who we truly consider friends.
Thank you again. I look forward to having the pleasure of serving you again!!!

“Excellant Food!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

We found this restaurant through reviews on this site and were glad we did. Excellant food. Very personal service by the owner, his wife, and our waiter, Richard. While the menu prices are higher than most restaurants in the area, the portion sizes are very large. Our bill, for two adults and one child was $89 before taxes. We did not order alcohol and our daughter ate off the adult menu. We actually didn't see a child's menu but that was fine. This is not 'fast food" Italian. This is real authentic Italian/Sicilian food. My wife highly recommends the escarole and beans. I highly recommend the Chicken Francese and the minestrone. Fettucine alfredo was also very good. It is a small place, in an "A" frame house with only 9 tables. The owner and his wife were in the dining room through and he came over several times to talk with us, which was a very nice touch. If you are anywhere in the area we highly recommend. And don't miss the homemade desserts!
