    after we were seated we waited 20 mins for our friendly waiter to arriive - the simple drinks we ordered came out wrong - now its way over 30 mins and we hadnt ordered - long story short Nicky a fantastic waitress swooped in and made it right - the food was ok. my husband said the mussels were the best but the main course was nothing great- not oven hot - not enough sauce - the angel hair was way under cooked and so dry we had to request extra suace..and the chicken cutlet lacked sauce and cheese - our Server Nicky was fantastic - the food was just ok..

    The food is always good and consistent. The service was at a nice pace. Nice happy hour. The sirloin special was a steak sliced thin with fingerling potatoes and a carrot and green bean medley. It was prepared as described and delicious.

    Our server, Victor was excellent! Food was delicious, pizza as an appetizer and took the rest home; choice of soup or salad with healthy greens. Large portions of the entrees, so leftovers for the week. Best Italian restaurant in Palm Harbor!

    The food was mediocre at best. The pasta sauce was super acidic and the ‘charcuterie’ board was a joke with low quality ‘packet’ meats from a supermarket. We will not return. As a positive, the service was excellent 😊

    Appetizer was over cooked. Ordered a bottle of wine which they served in water goblets. I asked for wine glasses but was told they don’t have any! I ordered the gnocchi Bolognese which was very bland and had absolutely no flavor.

    This was Our first visit to this restaurant. The bruschetta was very tasty. My husband ordered the manicotti and I had the snapper with Farro and everything was delicious. We did have a bit of a wait for our entrees; however, our waitress was very attentive. We will definitely return.

    Food is usually great but this time I got the wrong salad and then my food was cold. Sent it back for reheat and came back the same way. First time it’s happened so we’ll try again.

    We are obsessed with this restaurant. The stuffed pork chop and the salmon are our favorites. We tried the pizza last night as an appetizer and I had to make myself stop eating it so I didn’t ruin my dinner. Cannoli and lemon cello cheesecake were to dye for😊
