This is my second visit here and both have been good, service is very good and on a weekend you can expect a wait at prime times. Food always arrived hot and promptly. Both visits started with calamari as an appetizer that comes with a marinara sauce on the side. Personally I preferred the calamari with just a spritz of... More

Four of us have never been here before. This place from the outside does not look like anything special. The inside is nice but nothing special either. The food was fast and very hot. Portions are large. I had the lasagna it was very good. The house salad is very good. This is a very nice place and the food... More

Get here if you need to stay in Padre Island. All the basic Italian food, well prepared. Place is modest, service is just ok.

Several years ago I wrote a review of this restaurant while we were here on Padre Island. We visited the restaurant today on Valentines Day and the ladies all received a carnation as they entered and there was live music to provide a nice atmosphere. It is a casual setting but the food is very good and the portions are... More
