Kids had Cheese Ravioli and the sauce was very good as well as the ravioli. Wife had steak & shrimp. Steak was very tender and the shrimp were fresh from the gulf. I had the white clam sauce with capellini. I should have chosen a thicker pasta instead of the capellini because the white clam sauce was very good but overcooked the pasta on the way to the table. Appetizers were good, highly recommend the crab cakes in the shell. Service was over the top without being bothersome. If you get tired of tourist spots and frozen entrees, this is a great place for you! Ask for Mercedes (she and her husband run the place) and you will be well taken care of!!

My wife and I were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary and Scott was our waiter. He was very helpful in the selection of a wine for me. As usual, he was attentive, offered suggestions when asked and was relaxed as if we were his only table.

My family and I had a great time eating at this restaurant. This is was our first time here, and we couldn't have a asked for anything better than we received. We had the lunch special, and it was great also for a great price. Our waitress, Josie was also great. Most of all the we had a great experience in a very lovely environment.
