    Everything in the menu was great. We ordered Calamari and Pork belly for appetizers, and had the scallop and shrimp risotto, branzino, short rib fettuccini and the scallops for main entree. The chocolate mousse was just perfect to end the dinner. It was rich but not too sweet. The Americano was just ok. Aside from the balcony tables, the ambiance is not very nice but the food and service made up for it.

    This place is a gem. The choices are so special. We have enjoyed almost everything on the entire menu. Savory, perfectly cooked and dynamic describes every dish like the pork cheek , lasagna , duck gnocchi and lobster ravioli. The wine list is thoughtfully curated. They have my favorite Albarino and Il Bruciato is a staple that I have never seen on anyone else’s wine list. This is by far , is my favorite Italian restaurant in Wilmington. I recommend to everyone with confidence and they never disappoint. Waitstaff is delightful and knowledgeable. I am a residential and commercial design consultant and I am teeming to give this restaurant a face lift. The atmosphere does not even come close to the uniqueness and perfection of the menu. From my understanding the owner is in Washington D.C. most of the time at his flagship restaurant. The food 5stars /A++++ Decor and atmosphere leaves much for improvement. Floriana, if you actually read these, call me ❤️ 910-274-5191

    My guests enjoyed the house Pinot Grigio, lasagna, Sunday gravy, and pork tenderloin. I ordered the Ravioli. It was unusually dry and overloaded with walnuts. The pecan pie and chocolate mousse were tasty. We were disappointed that they didn't have cannoli on the menu. Service was friendly. I'm accustomed to seeing a 20% gratuity added to bills for groups of 6 or more. I was surprised to see it added for a group of 5. I'm glad I checked the itemized bill.

    We went for the first seating on NYE. It was pre fixe 5 course menu for $85. The food was interesting and the flavors and execution were excellent. Every single plate was delicious and the portions were perfect. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced with good choices for by the glass and by the bottle. Unfortunately the food was not hot which I bet can be hard to accomplish when doing these seatings, but it still deserves 5 stars for the food, value and the overall experience - especially compared to other area restaurants. The reason I only gave 2 for ambiance is the decor…which is a disturbing floor to ceiling bordello red with black trim, cheap brown ceiling fans and rickety furniture. A major remodel is clearly in order because the space does not at all suit the beautiful food.

    The appetizers and food were good not all Italian except for the pastas meat & fish dishes etc made very American or internationally but no Italian options ; I originally ordered shrimp& scallop risotto and returned it as the first bite of the scallop was a mouthful of salt And over cooked supposedly in white truffle oil and it wasn’t but they redeemed themselves with the sweet potato gnocchi with duck sauce pieces of delicious duck in a savory sauce ; my husband loved the porcini ribeye tender perfectly medium rare a little pricey for the size the tiramisu was very good but they knew this dinner was for our anniversary An they didn’t offer a thing for a special occasion no candle no anything but our waitress jes is an excellent server and super accommodating.the arancini came with Pesto and the pesto was super fresh but they were not made like typical Sicilian arancini not very Italian but very good ; the ambience is ok the attraction here is most likely spring & summer when you can sit outside on the balcony but only for couples we may go back to try some others specialties but not sure

    We've seen this restaurant for years and never tried it til now. We looked at the menu on the website and saw that there is a brunch on Sunday's. We were greeted warmly and seated upstairs in a tastefully decorated space with views of the Cape Fear river on a sunny morning. Our server was friendly and very attentive. The brunch menu is diverse and well defined. Excellent spicy bloody Mary's and donuts as a first course were delicious and very warm. The Benedict was exquisitely flavorful on generous slices of fresh house-made authentic Italian bread. A generous portion of lasagna was very warm, hearty, savory and creamy. A couple donuts and half of the lasagna was left to take home. Highly recommended. We look forward to returning for a meal on one of the private outdoor balcony tables, next time.

    Just a few days before our son's graduation from UNCW, we needed to find a place to accommodate 10 people for brunch on a Saturday. I was unable to book online because of the large number. I left a message stating my request. I was contacted the same day confirming the reservation. The food was delicious. Family who ordered the lasagne could not stop raving about how great it was. I ordered the steak and eggs and thought it too was delicious. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Ambiance was lovely. We had one waitress and she was both responsive attentive. Thank you Floriana for accommodating us on such short notice!
