“Italian family style restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

We went to this restaurant for dinner. It was great. We felt like we were in at an Italian family run, owned and operated restaurant. Great service. Very informal. Interesting decour. We had a penne sorrento, pollo rusticano, pizza and Pinot noir. All in bill was 128. The food was great and reasonably priced.

“Quaint, with good service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

This is our favorite restaurant while strolling St. Armand's Circle. It is peaceful, the staff cares, and the food is good. We really enjoy sitting our on the "balcony", watching the people go by.

“Mediocre and overpriced”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Three of us had a light lunch there. Seafood salad. While it was decent tasting, at over $14.00, medium sized shrimp and just not much seafood - nice enough dressing on it. Not wanting to add a negative feeling, I still felt compelled to quietly mention that the rolls were stale - I indicated waiter didn't have to bring another (but thought he should take initiative to go find fresher ones) - but he just acted like I was a cranky customer. He was not forthcoming - we each ordered a glass of wine; he brought bottle - and it was almost gone - he didn't suggest just buying a bottle. Anyway, a small mediocre salad, a good glass of wine, tip added on by restaurant - and it was a $37.00 lunch.

“Great veal, coffee, and wine list”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

Came on a Monday in February. It was right after the Lido Key sunset, so it was busy and the service was a little slow. But the food was wonderful including the 2 veal dishes we ordered. The wine list includes lots of excellent Italian wines by the glass. And the espresso is Lavazza! What more could you ask?
