It was our friends first time. Jose waited on us and was friendly. We had the shrimp appetizer Ange grilled octopus. Both were delicious. We order the Mancini and shrimp over risotto special and the chicken casserole. Both were tasty. Our friends had the paella with seafood and sausage. They enjoyed it. We also had 2 pitchers of white sangria. The food was very tasty and plentiful. My only suggestion is that either the menu indicate what items are gluten free and the wait staff should have a better under of what a gluten free item entails.

A unique Northern Italian dining experience in Margate, Florida.

Northern Italian cuisine can be described as one of the most refined, royal and diversified cuisines of Italy, characterized by the use of fresh stuffed pasta, polenta, risotto, game, truffles, mushrooms, cheeses, and rich hearty soups.

We arrived one-half hour early for our reservation. The gracious greeted us and showed us to our table. My date ordered his favorite whisky on the rock. He said that the pour was very generous. We shared the strawberry spinach salad to start. The salad dressing was so light and refreshing, so delicious. For the entree, I ordered the NY strip. The steak was cooked to the perfect temperature. My date had the filet. He said it was super tender and juicy. We end the night with apple tart, which is served with cinnamon ice cream. So delicious. We had a great time - amazing food, terrific service in a lovely ambiance. Highly recommended.

Best italian restaurant in Weston. THE best! Everything is delicious. The only thing I notice every time we go is that the place is VERY noisy. Very. This is something I don't like at all. But, anyway, I still go and will keep going. Caccio e Pepe, although pricey, is fantastic!!!!!!
