we wanted to try this place but there was no hostess and several groups were waiting to be seated so we left as well as several other families. Locals said it used to be good but apparently service is lacking

Positioned as a quaint Italian bistro in old Fernandina Beach, this restaurant was ok. The food was ok and the service was ok. Nothing to write home about.
