There were 4 adults for dinner. Excellent service, great pasta and no problems with special requests( one salad without carrots, one entree with marinara not Alfredo). Large portions, cooked properly-the scallops were hot and flavorful, not over cooked and chewy-yea! Four different entrees, everyone happy, and no one could eat all their dinner. The hot garlic knots were yummy and... More

The employees did their best: * hostess took care of us rapidly, * waiter, waitresses answered our questions and made sure everything was ok, * cooks in the kitchen made good food (we had both wonderful soups they served that day, lobster raviolis, lasagna and a pizza) BUT could hear the boss yelling at his employees in the kitchen. And... More

We were tired and hungry after a grueling ride in bumper to bumper traffic. Our desk clerk suggested this restaurant. It is in a strip mall close to the hotel. So, we gave it a try. Its a neighborhood place. There were many families with small children enjoying themselves. Service was good. The two people waiting tables were efficient. They... More

Nothing special here. Run of the mill Italian restaurant. The food is just ok I've had a lot better. Even the Olive Garden is a lot better. Service is very slow, they don't seem to care. My advice is to go somewhere else.

On Sunday night few restaurants in St. Augustine are open. We drove to the mall area west of 95 hoping to find a place to celebrate our 28th anniversary. Boy, did we luck out! The food and service were outstanding. Hubby had peppers and sausage. I enjoyed scallops in alfredo sauce over linguine. Both were outstanding. The salads preceding the... More

If you have a lot of time, this is the place to go. The food was very good, the service was good but it took FOREVER to get our meal!! Almost an hour!!! The two waitresses were almost running while the owner-manager didn't seem to be doing much. Our food was delicious but certainly glad we didn't have to be... More

Italian is my favorite food, and I've traveled in Italy a few times, so I have an idea on what is good quality. We've been stopping-in this out-of-the-way restaurant in a strip mall over the past nine years, after originally trying it on a tip from the front desk of a near-by hotel at the I-95 intersection. My "gold standard"... More

Establishment is up the road from Holiday Inn St Augustine North, about 10 minutes away, crossing over 95. It's located in a strip mall so go slow as you approach. The restaurant was recommended by the front desk at Holiday Inn and it did not disappoint. Excellent salads and pizza. We sat in the bar and the bartender handled all... More

We arrived during happy hour so we ordered a couple of specials, the chicken cacciatori and the cheese ravioli. Both were acceptable for the price but nothing special. The service was very good and friendly. I would be interesting to try some of the items from the regular menu.
