    This place is home for me. If I’m in south FL for a week I’m eating here at least 3, if not 4 nights. Steve is my cooking idol and would go so far as to say his Italian cooking is better than my own grandmother’s was. Place has a character and cadence of its own. There is simply nowhere else like it. Anywhere.

    Reservation was for 10 PM outside. Tipped the hostess to seat us inside. She did nothing except keep the money then did not see us until 10:40 PM outside. Server had no personality and was too quick. He made us feel very rushed to order our food. Then very rushed to give us our check. Didn’t seem like he wanted to be there. Not a fan of that you can’t order appetizers first.

    This is about as consistent as great as it gets. It somehow remains something more than a restaurant, it’s an experience, nothing elaborate, or over the top, just a well oiled machine. Service, which has died across the United States the last couple of years, is still spot on here, Steve runs a very tight ship and doesn’t suffer mediocrity. This is not a budget restaurant, they never claimed to be, so bring your wallet, but also expect to walk out satisfied and ready to make your next reservation. If I could boil down to one thing, it’s attention to detail, especially with the food, nothing leaves the line unless Steve has personally inspected, you gotta love that .

    Visited from philly. Definitely a special occasion restaurant. The price of food was well worth it, cocktails not so great. Tasted like sour mix. I'd recommend a bottle of wine. Had the Yo cuz special, broccolini, sicilian slice, meatball salad, and spicy vodka with sausage. All delicious! Thought our server kinda of rushed us. Would definitely recommend checking this place out though.
