We ate outside on the deck and had a beautiful sunset (although overlooking the parking lot). Our server was very helpful. We both had homemade pasta dishes and we shared a homemade tiramisu. Fun alternative to the more typical restaurants in the area.

Everything was good; wine, food and service, except for the dipping oil for the bread. It has no flavor, we added salt to it and it made it alittle better.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Started out with the Caesar salad which was delicious. Ordered the lasagna and it was very good. For dessert we had chocolate mousse which we really enjoyed served with a great, fresh cup of decaf. (Probably my best cup of after-dinner coffee ever). We also enjoyed the bread which was included with dinner, it comes with a delicious pesto dipping sauce. Our waiter was very friendly and provided very good service. Overall I think this is an excellent restaurant and I will return.

Great restaurant. Excellent food. Sauteed calimari app was perfectly cooked and the sauce was amazing. Just butter, garlic and stock but done really well. Pasta (homemade penne) with seafood was also great. My son had pasta amatriciana which I tasted and that was great too. Wines were reasonable. Dessert was very good. I can highly recommend the tiramiso. Thanks also to our server, Nick, who was knowledgeable and attentive without being condescending. My best seafood meal since Belforte in Vernaccia, Italy (look it up).

Short and sweet, by far the best Italian food in Clearwater. It does not look fancy from the outside (strip mall) but it is phenomenal food and service. There is an option to sit outside as well. Clean bathrooms as well!!! Always a good sign.

The meal was delicious and the service was excellent. Since we only booked that day, we had to sit on an outside terrace. It was covered, but the noise from the traffic was not pleasant. The food was worth it, but make your reservation early and request an inside table.

This was our favorite restaurant that we found in the Clearwater Beach area during our vacation. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we returned on the final night of our stay so that we would have a lasting memory. The homemade pastas are to die for, the service is excellent in that the meal proceeds at a comfortable pace, and the wait staff are extremely helpful in describing and recommending various menu items. Outdoor and indoor seating are both comfortable, and there is even a tiny bar for any wait times that might be experienced for those without dinner reservations. Highly recommended!
