    We celebrated our anniversary there. Food & the wait staff were outstanding but be prepared to spend over $200 for a dinner for 2 people. Average veal dinner price is over $60 per person. A glass of red wine was $24! Probably the most expensive restaurant in Orlando. Excellent choice for a special occasion.

    First class Italian restaurant, not for the of heart ! It’s pricey but worth it , the calamari and meatballs were excellent the barrata was very nice and both the eggplant and veal with lobster in mushroom brandy cream was outstanding , the crème brûlée should burn longer to get rid of the alcohol but was very good and the moose cake was outstanding

    This is a wonderful restaurant for special events. They specialize in traditional Italian cooking done with creativity. It is rather pricey but worth it. Customers are treated like royalty. There are plenty of wait staff to serve you. They are dressed informal attire. The ambiance is old fashioned and elegant

    We love this restaurant, its food and your staff. We are however disappointed that you do not uphold your dress code. I know it's a challenge but it would be nice if more of an attempt could be made to remind people that dressing appropriately is part of the experience of dining in one of the best restaurants in Orlando. All the best!
