This place is a flashback to 1975. Upon walking in you are greeted by a stone face women that doesn't make you feel welcome at all! She didn't crack a smile the whole time we were there. Our waiter was also unpleasant and rushed..we were a party of two his attention was for a very older demographic that was ordering... More

After reading the reviews here - and a recommendation from a local - I decided to try this restaurant out. Maybe they were having a bad night, but I was not impressed. I sat in the bar near the kitchen so I had a chance to watch food being prepared. The wine selection is surprisingly poor for an Italian restaurant... More

My friends who live her like the veal and eggplant dishes. This time I had the pizza and a salad. Playful staff . Locals like this spot too.

Great family type restaurant with parking in rear. It's nothing fancy but you can expect a hearty, delicious meal. I shared a very tasty salad and had the special.... Fruitte de Mar with a lobster tail, calamari, shrimp, clams over pasta. We all shared a tartufo for dessert. I was pleasantly surprised by my $7 glass of wine - Cabernet... More

We ate at this restaurant due to its proximity to the resort where we were staying. Our family of four enjoyed several different pasta dishes. All tasted quite good and were very generous portions. We all took some back to the hotel to have for lunch the next day. Staff was friendly and the service was quick. Would recommend for... More

Casual Italian Restaurant offering excellent food at very reasonable prices. Don't miss the chicken scarpiello (on the bone) and traditional pasta dishes like spaghetti and baked stuffed shells. Garlic bread is fantastic , as are the bar pies. Enjoy this casual getaway just one block off the beach (Sunrise & A1A). Try the ricotta chessecake for dessert!

We arrived at 6.30pm to find EVERY table taken. We got in. But a line formed on the sidewalk after that. Is there any better recommendation than that. This is good Italian cooking that your Mamma would know and serve. Its also the kind of place dying out in the States as multi national, chains take over. Family run business... More
