While visiting Sanibel Island with friends we were looking for a nice Friday evening dinner. After checking TA we decided on IL Tesoro. Since we were out of season, we were able to just walk in without a reservation. The atmosphere is romantic and cozy because it's not a huge place. We enjoyed our dinners very much. I had the spaghetti scampi and my wife enjoyed the spaghetti with mussels. Neither dish was doused in olive oil or overly garlicky tasting as is the case in many chain or lesser quality restaurants. Our server Brett was excellent and the owner stopped by to ensure our satisfaction. This is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion, romantic dinner or just a fine quality Italian meal. It can be a little pricey though. They also have a sister restaurant in New York City on 82nd St.
