We met friends who had been on a cruise that we hadn’t seen in a long while. It was a beautiful setting outside and quiet enough to talk and catch up. We enjoyed it very much.

Perfect spot for a boozy brunch with friends! The atmosphere is open and fun with a nice view of Las Olas. Some of the food portions are smaller than others, but overall a good value and the unlimited mimosas are a great deal ($14). The last time I was here, service was slow and it took forever to get a refill. But on this most recent visit, service was very attentive.

Great waiter. Wonderful food. Not rushed at all. A nice leisurely meal outside on the porch. Music a little loud for my taste so conversation was hard to understand.

Consistently good food - stays authentic and true to itself, keeping true Italian roots with its approach to food and the menu. You won’t find many places with polenta as a side, wont find many places that do a carbonara sauce - just two examples. The back patio is enchanting especially when lit up at night. Will keep going as often as I can. Really love it and have never had anything but a good experience.

We were visiting Ft Lauderdale and a friend recommended we dine here. What a fabulous choice! Our server was the best and took care of our every need. The atmosphere was beautifully done. Our food was the star of the night. I had carbonara and my husband had a steak with the special brussel sprout side. Our appetizer was also a special - peaches, prosciutto and burrata mozzarella. SO amazing! We did not need dessert, but had tiramisu and gelato of course. I had spent part of my summer in Italy and this brought me right back. Thank you for a wonderful night.

Not sure what the fuss is about considering the other more authentic Italian Food options available in the area. Great place to people watch if that's more important than the cuisine.

Our dinner experience was really good for the most part. Our waitress was very nice and the food was good.
The only thing that upset me is that when we were leaving, I told the hostess in the front that I really enjoyed the restaurant and I would like to return the following week with my family. I asked her about sitting in the back, however, I have a service dog which I would be bringing. She looked at me like I was from outer space. She told me that she can't guarantee the area in the back courtyard, which I understand, but she also told me that you don't allow dogs, for obvious reasons, which I understand.
She gave me a dismissive look and said that since our dog is a service dog they can make an exception. We were not asking to be sat inside the restaurant, but if need be, it shouldn't be such an issue. I'm not complaining about the rules, but I am surprised that if a patron needs the assistance of a service animal, your staff would look at them as if they were crazy or if we are bothering her. She needs to revisit her attitude and not make people feel uncomfortable. I will not be returning.

Sean was a good waiter but the entrees took at least 30 min to arrive after the appetizer. Mushroom pizza was subpar and undercooked.

The food was excellent as usual, however, the service has gone downhill. Very slow, service. I was disappointed that even though I has stated it was a birthday, nothing was done.
