This family owned place serves great food in a casual setting. My Salmon Maria was perfect as were the sides. Everyone raved about their food which is unusual for us. I’m hoping to go back before we leave the area.

Great food and a very comfortable atmosphere. We ordered Salmon Maria, Lump Bianco and Chicken Parmigiana, each came with sides and all of it was great. For desert, the cheese cake was extraordinary and the apple cobbler perfect. I can’t wait to get back to...More

I ordered the Laguna and it comes with garlic bread and a salad. Positive.... the food smelled GREAT and looked just as good. Taste was extremely poor. Lasagna was mushy and tasted old and strange. The bread had the most odd taste ever. Maybe one...More

Go for the music on Sunday, not for the wacko owner or mediocre food that is high price and low taste. Poor staff is under a thumb of owner that cause 'walking on eggs'...that type of person.

This is our favorite restaurant to eat in Land O Lakes. The food is fresh and the portion sizes are big enough to satisfy any hungry Italian. Please make it a point to stop by when you are in town, you wont be disappointed.
