Nicest Italian restaurant in Southport. Fun, great food, good service. We live in the area and have found this to be a consistently good restaurant. The staff are great as is the food. Might be a tad on the expensive side, but it's worth it.

All facets excellent. On the water overlooking marina adjacent to ICW - inter coastal waterway.Classy decor, white table cloths, a very attentive, pleasant and accommodating waitress without rushing us allowing us to enjoy our cocktails.
