Extremely on edge as no one was wearing masks, there was no social distancing and no one was asking to see vaccination receipts especially with a new variant about to explode. We are not used to this! It was extremely hot in the restaurant which made it uncomfortable to be there while eating. We ordered a side dish and that never arrived and we were billed for it! The good that we did receive was very good

The eggs al forno were delicious! The French toast and waffles were just ok according to my mom and brother. I highly recommend getting the bamboloni with yellow custard and cappuccino. Mona and Brian were great! The manager also came by to check on us. Service gets 5 stars. Definitely recommend arriving before noon for brunch as we did. It starts to get pretty crowded by the afternoon.

Best local place to have an amazing time with friends or family. Great ambiance, food is completely out of this world! Only issue on this day would of been if the warmers outside were to be on, yet especially when asked to our waitress and it is ignored. It’s ok, doesn’t take away from it originality and the other waiters on site. Highly recommend, yet would go on notice, check the weather and dress accordingly 👍😉

7:45 reservation and was seated at 8:30. In all fairness, was waiting on an outside table which was promised, but not guaranteed. Outside vibe is way better.

Food was amazing.

Service was poor. At one point, we waited for our server, Jessica, for 30 minutes to return so we could order another drink & get the bill.

I’ve been many times and it’s been good. Last night was awful. Food took and hour to come out and it was cold. Manger was pretty rude. Too many options I won’t be back!

The hostess station is poorly managed. The two ladies that were supposed to greet us - but didn’t - were incredibly unpleasant. Not a single smile or a bit of a welcoming vibe. Thankfully our waitress turned out to be a sweetheart and my birthday dinner didn’t end up being a complete failure.
We are familiar with the Boca Raton location and LOVE it, I figured it would be the same at this location but definitely not the case. The food quality is not even comparable. A VERY disappointing experience to say the least.

This was my first time at this restaurant. My main complaint is that we could only get a reservation at 8:15 and we got there at 7:50 to check in. We were not seated until 8:50 and there was no apology for the delay. In the few instances I have not been seated within a few minutes of my reservation. they apologized and gave us something complementary in our dinner. That was not done there. The food was very good and it was an energetic setting.

We went 2 days in a row. Both experiences were top shelf. Both servers, JP and Gina were knowledgable and friendly. Our food was excellent, the fresh pasta was the best. We also loved the atmosphere, great vibe, great energy. Their in house barrel aged bourbon was the smoothest ever. We can't wait to return.

We had a great time at dinner here on vacation. We had a reservation but we were seated right away, the drinks were delicious (martini Monday - half off!), and the food was so so good. Everything tasted so fresh and came out quickly. And we got a seat in the outdoor patio area which was great. All in all would highly recommend.

One of our favorite restaurants in Ft.Lauderdale. Great ambience, excellent food. Seated in back courtyard area which we prefer. The waiter seemed a little rushed, but typically the waiters are excellent. Highly recommend!
