I ate at this restaurant a couple of times many years ago and wasn't that impressed. So I wasn't that jazzed when my wife wanted to eat here. I'm glad she wanted to go. There was live music and my food was very good. We got bread and salad first. The salad had lots of goodies like black olives and... More

Great Italian food at the beach. We like the restaurant but most often call in an order for take-out. Great service and after dining here many times, never had a disappointing meal.

My family waited 30 minutes for a table, despite their being empty tables in the restaurant. When we finally were seated, our waiter did not pay much attention to us, and we had to ask for our check 3 times before we actually got it. I would not recommend this place to those traveling with families.

Baked Ziti was really good. Rolls for appetizer were great. Wife said salad was good and lasagna was ok. Kids had Pizza. Cheese was flavorful. Strong cocktails which was good for me. I'd come back for sure.

The veal parmigiana and the lasagna were excellent we arrived only to take advantage of early bird which was an unexpected joy since we were not very hungry. The rolls that were served were the best rolls I have ever tasted better than desert.

The grouper piccata was superb and my very favorite item on the menu filled with favorites. The white pizza makes me feel like I am in Aci Trezza Sicily at "Vecchia Marina a"Urnazza overlooking the Mediterranean Sea it is so authentic. To make the evening even better Jim Andrews was playing his "magic" saxophone to serenade us and we even... More

We showed up without a reservation on a busy night. They took our name, told us the likely wait time and called us within that time. Our waitress was pleasant and the food, pizza, arrived hot in the time that has to elapse to make and cook it. It tasted great and we left happy.
