“Wonderful Food, Great Atmosphere & Great Staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

We have not had a meal that we didn't enjoy! A great wine & spirit selection. I think that it's great that the sauces & pasta are made in house as well as the Gelato and desserts. Always a pleasant experience and the outdoor seating is wonderful over looking the water. The staff greets you at the door and immediately accommodates your needs. We will definitely return to share the experience with more friends!

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

I ordered the portobello mushroom ravioli and my husband ordered the 1lb lasagna. Both were delicious and filling. Save room for dessert, the nutella cake with cream sauce was awesome!
Restaurant is upscale, but allows flr casual diners.

“Lobster pasta, pizza, and appetizers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

It is one of three upscale restaurants in the area and a great location. You pay more but it is a quality product and atmosphere. What you pay for is what you get. We have never had a bad experience and a nice relaxing dinner after a day on the islands or a day of fishing with FISH ON charters.

“Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

Restuarant is a little hard to find, as it's tucked away in a little shopping plaza. We were there for dinner. They have outdoor seating, by water feature and fountain, which we chose on this evening, due to the nice weather. Service was good, and freindly. Our waitress recommended the bacon wrapped dates for an appetizer. It was good, but somewhat overpriced. We had the stuffed Sicilian pork, and the Bella Mac Basilicata dishes. Both were very good. Left feeling very satisfied with this restuarant.

“Just like Olive Garden but more expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

I chose this restaurant because of the rave reviews but I wasn't impressed. Upon entering, all the shops around the eatery was closed for business. We originally thought the restaurant was closed as well because there was no one around. When entering there was one couple inside. We opted to eat on the patio because there was a pond in the center. We had to be moved inside after our bread and salad began blowing away. We were hastily sat right outside the kitchen where staff loomed around in droves. It was a bit uncomfortable. Salad did not come with dinner so my husband and I shared a purchased house salad which was so-so. The bread was tasteless and hard. I ordered the fettuccine alfredo and my husband ordered the lobster forno, again because of reviews on Trip advisor. The alfredo was good. Tasted just like Olive Garden's. My husband said the lobster forno was okay, but clearly imitation. I would pass on this restaurant. The mood wasn't good and the food wasn't good enough for the price we paid.
