Dinner was great, dessert was yummy. Service was excellent. We were celebrating our anniversary and it was a great place! Had appetizers and for our main entrées had the Dover So that’s a rare find in restaurants. Our waiter made a suggestion on a sparkling wine that was great. And the cannolis were so fresh tasting. We can’t wait to go again and dine here.

We really like this restaurant. The FOOD, service and staff are great.

For this visit we shared the Dover Sole with calamari apps. Everything was great as expected. The food quality(and drinks) are top shelf every time we eat here.

This is a destination restaurant for us every time we are in the area.

The calamari seemed to be of the store-bought "frozen" variety. Unfortunately, the restaurant opens onto the casino and the cigarette smoke is nauseating. Our meal was served without utensils and we had to wait for our server to return to get them. If you want a good meal, leave the hotel and go downtown, less than 15 minutes. There is a wealth of great restaurants in the downtown area. If you want to travel less than 10 minutes, go to the Brandon area which also has several really good eateries.

Food was excellent. We all enjoyed the Caesar salad and our favorite meal was the eggplant parmigiana, although everything was really good. Our server was excellent and ended our meal with a champagne toast (for my birthday). It was an an all-around great experience.

Not at this time. Four (4) people in our party, 4 different entrees with opinions split 2/2. Lasagna and Bolognese were delicious. Opinions for the Pesto Shrimp and Torchio were the same, tasteless and bland. Considering prices are ala carte, we felt they are overpriced in several areas. The sides we ordered were ok,. We expect wine to be pricey but even some of those options were a bit much. Service was acceptable.
We plan to eat there again for a birthday and want to make sure we just didn't attend on a bad night.

Drinks were great, servers were attentive, polite, and made relevant recommendations. The only complaint we had for the evening was that the food and drinks took a while to arrive. We were in no rush, so it was fine, and we were also there the day after Valentine's Day. So it could be a fluke.

We ordered lamb, potatoes and broccolini. The lamb and broccolini came but had to wait on the potatoes for another 10-15 mins. I was expecting my entire dinner to come at the same time. By the time the potatoes came, we had almost finished our lamb and broccolini....not good. I don't think I would ever go back there for any meal.
