Everything g is always so good.
I tried something new and just didn’t prefer the taste but that’s on me. It was prepared perfectly!

The price was also steep because we ordered a lot and a bottle of wine plus dessert.

Live this place & the staff 100%

Amazing authentic Italian restaurant. A hidden gem. Glad I found this place. All workers go out of their way to ensure a quality experience. Chicken parm is to die for.

Good wine selection, great service. Fairly average Italian food but may be on par with that of the South Florida area.

We were seated next to a very noisy party who must of been celebrating New Years in April. Other than that it was a fun place to be at. The food was good, but I found their wine list very weak, a lot of wines that you see on Publix shelves, at 4 times the price on some of them. The next time I go I will bring my own wine and pay the corkage. The food was tasty, all 6 of us enjoyed our food. The veal parmesan was so big, it would of been enough for all six of us. I look forward to going back very soon.

2 out of 4 liked their meals. Didn't love it. I got gnocci with pesto sauce. It was swimming in it like soup. My friend got the pasta with seafood. She didn't like it at all. Veal parm was not the parm we think of. It was breaded with sauce on the side.
The bar was hopping with a diverse crowd. No one was wearing masks in the bar area. However, Dennis Rodman made an appearance.

This is a lovely Italian restaurant located in a large hotel Oceanside. The pluses: authentic Calabrian food. Old school but extremely well done and reasonably priced. Our waiter was an older Italian man and he was a hoot. And reasonably attentive. The atmosphere in the dining room was nothing special although we had a bit of ocean view over the tiki bar. Lots of families and noise so not a quiet or romantic choice but all in all a very good meal. I would go back.

On our recent visit to Fort Lauderdale we were looking for an available restaurant on a Saturday night. This was one of the only ones that had reservations available so we decided to give it a try. Boy am I glad we did! The food was phenomenal! We shared chicken parm and lasagna (which was on special). Both were delicious and huge! We had them for dinner and then lunch the next day and we STILL didn’t eat it all! We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. They also had a wonderful piano player who made the night even better! We liked it so much, we went back 3 nights later. And everything was perfect that night too!!

Since the very first time my wife and I entered this restaurant we immediately felt like we were with old friends we’ve known for years. The owner always has a warm smile and kind words every time we walk in, the ladies / hostess are always friendly and accommodating and the chef finds time to check each table. I can’t speak for the dining room side of the restaurant because we always request a table in the bar area, we love the noise and the people watching. The Piano player usually shows up around 8:00 and the entire bar area comes alive with people dancing and singing. The entertainment is a great addition but not the main attraction here, the food and service is a big part of why we keep coming back. The main waiter in the bar area knows all the regulars what they eat as well as their favorite drinks. Two couples looking for a great meal and lots of laughs in a very friendly atmosphere definitely check out this hidden gem of a restaurant. Did I mention this restaurant is also on the beach? Enjoy

The food was outstanding! We are originally from the northeast and moved to Miami 15 years ago. The Fort Lauderdale area is where we go to have Italian food. We tried Casa Calabria based on OpenTable reviews. Every dish we ordered was delicious from the gnocchi. to the lamb chops and dessert. We highly recommend to anyone looking for authentic Italian food!
