This place gives Italian food a bad name... The pizza is horrible and the smell of rotting food and cigars fills the air of the courtyard. Watch out for the shady waiter that tries to add a 40% gratuity.

We visited during the art festival. They served a St. Patricks Day special, corned beef and cabbage along with a limited lunch menu including a meatball sub. Both meals were large and the corn beef and cabbage was filling but not an outstanding taste. The server was friendly and personable. No real complaints but nothing special.

We were taking a stroll down S. Park Avenue in Winter Park looking for a restaurant open on New Year's Day. A gentleman affiliated with the restaurant was standing outside the front door and asked us if we wanted to dine there and we agreed. Abdul was our waiter and took excellent care of us. Our food was yummy good. I had the $9, nine inch pizza (choice of 2 toppings) and took alot home as large for me, my husband and I shared the super tasty soup of the day, and he ate a pannini which he told me was the best that he ever had. We ate at a sidewalk table along S. Park Ave. but there was a courtyard in the back section and an inner section of the restaurant. We would love to go back if we are over that way again.

An employee at a museum we visited suggested this as one option for lunch. We were starving and were happy to find this cafe. We split a bowl of their homemade chicken soup and then we each ordered sandwiches. Everything was very good, fresh and perfectly sized portions. Although they appeared to be shortstaffed with only one server working - he hustled to keep everyone happy, never losing his cool and remained very upbeat.

Always the best coffee, snacks and meals. World's greatest Iced Lattes. Sip, sit, nibble, and enjoy at the outside tables.
