The restaurant is nice, our waitress was great, friendly and service was fast. The drinks were excellent as well, but this is like a sports bar. If you want Italian food this is not the place to go. The mozzarella sticks had no flavor, I think Denny’s are better and I haven’t been there in ages. The food wasn’t tasty at all, it seemed like it was already cooked, heat up in the microwave and taken to the table. It is overpriced for the food quality. I would just go there for drinks not dinner.

If you want homemade Pasta this is the place to go. We had the Mushroom Ravioli and the Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. It was the best ever. Highly recommend this restaurant. The service was also great.

Amazing experience! What a terrific dinner.

We were celebrating a special birthday and selected this restaurant based on its location to our accommodations. It turned out to be a great find.

We were greeted by the host, hostess and wait staff who welcomed us with a “Happy Birthday “. Then promptly showed us to a high top for two along the outside railing. Our waitress was a delightful young lady who continued the b-day theme and promptly took our beverage order.

We started with the BRUSCHETTA DI BUFALA, which was great. The chopped toppings with aged balsamic glaze: fabulous.

The Branzino was simply prepared and absolutely delicious. The presentation accentuated the meticulous attention to detail evident throughout our entire meal.

The staff was on point, anticipating our needs and checking-in.

A word of caution on ordering: the food comes out of the kitchen VERY quickly. Although the tables were mostly full, it was a mere minutes before our orders appeared table side.

The Hookah-ista was exciting to watch. It was a show unto itself.

OBTW, the music so added to the ambiance; subtle, familiar, and appropriate volume.

A definite must try!

The service was extremely poor. We waited 15 minutes before we were given water. The waiter was not attentive at all. They forgot the vegetables that come with the entree. Once we pointed that out he can back with hard undercooked asparagus. All in all it was not worth the money and I will not be returning. There is way better Italian options on Las Olas than this.

We ordered an appetizer and meal. Food was alright. Finished and waited 20mins total to request check and pay and process. As our waiter processed our check, we noticed everyone around us getting seated got complimentary bread rolls, as most Italian restaurants do. So we asked if the bread is on the menu or complimentary, the waiter says it’s on the menu to order. As we leave, I asked another waiter if it’s complimentary and they say yes.

This restaurant forced a 20% gratuity, and never even gave us complimentary bread. When brought up to the hostess on way out, she said I’ll go talk to the manager. The manager was our waiter. All he did was apologize and then made an excuse that because we ordered the appetizer, that we don’t get bread. Which makes no sense. So at this point he lied and said it’s a menu item to hide his initial mistake, and now making up something about ordering an appetizer cancels out complimentary bread. He was really rude about it the whole time. For a place forcing 20% gratuity, very very rude. In the end, he angrily refunded us our appetizer to make up for the bad service and rude attitude but he was very bitter about it.

Would not recommend due to okay food and terrible service.

The worst place we’ve been on Las Olas. Our server brought our appetizer and we ate it before we ever received our drinks. After we ate our appetizer, our server brought our drinks 15 mins later. After we finished our drinks, our server walked by us approximately 5 or 6 times without asking us for another drink, or what else we wanted to eat. However he did pay attention to the table right next to us. We complained to the manager, and he was content to have us walk out door rather than appease us. As a result, before we ordered our entrees, we left and went to del friscos. We did not even receive an apology after complaining twice! We would never go there again nor would I recommend it.

We had an 8:15pm reservation (arrived within the 15 minute window) and we’re not seated until 9:35pm. The food was good but not great—not worth the wait. The restaurant was very loud so it was difficult to have conversation.

Not a great experience. The food was just ok, half of the meals were wrong, and the staff hovers over you while you are eating. They literally removed a plate before we were finished. The noise level is intolerable -which is why the staff can’t hear what you are actually ordering. Would not go back.

We had high expectations for this restaurant. We ordered our favorite drink “old fashioned “ and we love it with the large single ice cube and they brought it with multiple small ice cubes. We asked that the food be brought out in increments. Appetizers and then entree, it was all brought out together. The quality of the drinks were very bad. We were so disappointed with the old fashioned we tried the lychee martini, it was extremely tart and had random pieces in the drink and was cloudy. Overall I wouldn’t return especially because there are several nice restaurants in the area that have had great first impressions from the food to the drinks to the service.

We had very poor service, and very disappointed in the food. The server couldn’t understand a simple drink order. I had to go into the bar area to see if they had Patron Anejo Tequila and then show a picture of it on my phone. The appetizer we got to start, Eggplant Parmigiana was pathetic looking and the size of chicken nuggets. Two of us ordered chicken parmigiana, the most basic of Italian dishes after having the appetizer. Had no expectations for that tasting good. The last ordered the lobster ravioli which was just okay. But not something I would ever order again. Quite confused by the crowd based on our abominable service. No interest in trying again.

Based on the doors wide open and all the plants in the establishment - there were flies flying over our table while we were trying to eat. One fly actually made it into someone's dish so that ruined the entire meal.

We went on a Saturday night. It was busy but we did get seating at our reservation time. Food was good. We shared a flatbread pizza and had pasta entrees. The service was just okay. The waiter was nice and helpful at first but we really never saw him after that. There were a couple other servers that helped with getting drinks and somethings we were waiting for. The restaurant is VERY noisy!! There was also a loud group celebrating something so that added to the noise level. I wouldn’t say don’t go, because the food was good, but be aware that it is a very lively young crowd And if you are looking to have dinner conversation it’s too noisy for that.
