    We came in late in a Sunday and the staff was welcoming and didnt rush us out. Food was amazing as was the Chianti Classico! There were 4 of us and we all had different entrees and all enjoyed it very much. If you’re looking for good Italian food on the beach this is the place to go.

    Ambiance and overall atmosphere is lacking a bit worn and outdated. Service was attentive and professional. Had to ask for bread 2x but otherwise all good. The fettuccine Alfredo was not exceptional, lacked flavor. Kids pasta a hit! The portion of Angel hair pasta with shrimp and scallops was heavy on the pasta, shrimp were tasty and cooked well. Scallops were over cooked and dry.

    Nick, our server, was excellent, and the food was outstanding. However it was a bit pricey for the strip mall atmosphere, and The lighting/fan combination caused a strobe like effect that was distracting for some of our party. I would go back and sit in a booth or outside!

    We sat outside for a late dinner. Our server James was fabulous. He was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and helpful in pointing out specials, favorites, etc. All staff we encountered were really top notch. Professionals who take their jobs seriously not just “servers”. The food was great! We had a myriad of seafood, chicken & pasta dishes. Kudos to the chef! My only criticism is that the fan near our table didn’t work. That would’ve made it better cause August in Florida is hot!

    I have reviewed this restaurant before so this is a follow up. They are still on the mark. There is no variance in the preparation of the recipes. This is a common problem with independent restaurants. Large chains have little variance because most things come out of pre measured and in many cases, pre made packs. Independent restaurants make it fresh everyday. Typically you eat at a restaurant and it's very good, you go back and it's not quite the same, no consistency. Not here, I have dined here more the 6 time and every time was equally delicious. This is an important measuring stick for a restaurant, so I feel confident in recommending this one. Go and savor the flavors, it's worth the trip and the bucks

    The restaurant is at the corner of a busy intersection which makes it pretty loud. Food was ok, but not outstanding which is what you would expect based on the pricing.
