Here's a tip...go to happy hour 4-7. Sit at the bar. Food was great as was the bar staff. Live music starts @ 7. Home run for us. I have dined here several times in the past four years always at the bar for happy hour (January - March), and each time has been a good dining experience.

This is probably the worst Italian restaurant that I have eaten at in the past 15 years. The only reason that it gets a two is because the employees are so friendly and accommodating. The food is really well below average. If in the Destin/Miramar Beach area choose Mimmo or Fat Clemensa.

Being as how our anniversary is on Valentine's Day, we always have to make reservations if we plan to eat at a special restaurant and this was no exception. The only time I could get was 4:00 pm when they opened but that was fine as we don't like to eat too late. The restaurant was decorated for Valentines Day... More

My family & I ate here and maybe our waitress was just having a bad night or bad week but she made mistake after mistake; so many in fact I felt like I was being pranked! For starters, there were only three tables with people so it wasn't crowded ok. Our waitress got my wine wrong, she brought not only... More

Our group of 5 were unanimously pleased with our visit to the Tuscany Italian Bistro: with the ambience, the food, the service. Our server, Elena, was anxious to please. The glasses of wine were generous portions. The "small side salads" were twice the size we anticipated, and the vinaigrette dressing was delicious. Some of us enjoyed lamb shanks, other of... More

Had a great meal here with friends. The Rack of Lamb with a very tasty red wine reduction sauce was excellent. My husband had the Rigatoni with Spicy Italian Sausage, Mushrooms & Cheese and said it was very good. The atmosphere is fun. The piano bar which has a very good musician/singer is very loud, so if you want a... More

My husband and I use to frequent Guglielmo's and we're so sad when it closed. While not the same menu as the previous restaurant this place still serves some the best Italian food you can find in N. Fla. This new space brings me right back to Italy - it's such a beautiful place. Service was excellent and the food... More

I was looking for Italian for my birthday. This place was lovely. The staff were friendly and attentive. I felt the food was over priced. Most pasta dishes were 19.95. I ordered lasagna and added a side salad. Both were just ok. I could have made a meal of the rolls and dipping oil. The rolls were crusty and delicious... More

We ALWAYS make this our go-to Destin Italian dinner restaurant! We have sat in both the bar area - for special happy hour menu, and in the romantic dining area. We are never disappointed! The staff has remained the same over the years and are extremely friendly.
