    Bar seating: indifferent, unfriendly staff who didn’t even know their own menu. Wilted, boring Caesar salad, watery olive oil, gluey undercooked doughy margarita pizza. Completely underwhelmed. Won’t ever go back.

    italian restaurant over in ft walton beach has friendlier and more attentative service. I had to ask server for refills due to her lack of attention. Food was ok. Better than Olive Garden but not as good as small italian places back home. Feel like people may like this just because they are sick of seafood, but i would go to another italian place to itch that crave.

    Pizza had huge gobs of thick chese on a thin pizza. Bruschetta was cold vegetables on bread with a lump of chese on top, just awful. Worst Italian I have ever been to.

    It was our second visit while on vacation in the area. It is hands down AMAZING. We visit Destin every October and discovered last fall and there was no question that we were coming back. The bruschetta and antipasto tray are so good. We had 3 different pastas and all three were to die for. Run don’t walk to this place!!

    This was, by far, the best service we have had in so many years! We booked on the app, I was apprehensive. One evening we went to eat at the bar to check out the place and see if our reservations were kept. I didn’t want to bring people from out of town and not have a table. So, the owner was one of the managers on duty and he showed us the app reservation and was so easy going. We watched the entire staff work hard but at the same time, dress clean, be professional with customers, work swiftly but not rush the patrons and provide fine dining level service. You dan dress casual or for a special occasion and everyone fits in. We had a long table waiting for 18ppl with roses on the table: they gave us another little table so we could place some engagement items on it. The one waiter served everyone of us while serving outside as well and it was very impressive: he had a great attitude and funny banter with us as well. The food is incredible and the drinks are wonderful. No one in our party had been here and everyone raved after we left. I used to be an event planner and occasionally I still will plan weddings, if you need a small place to eat as a family, or go on a date or just want to relax, it’s the perfect restaurant. We can’t say enough good things about both times we came in. It will be a special place for us from now on. Thank you so much and restaurants need to take note on the wonderful level of service you provide!

    Restaurant was empty and was sat between the kitchen and restrooms. Was celebrating my daughters 13th birthday and zero acknowledgment. Food was great. Music was loud. Server brought food out and never returned to check on our table until we nearly needed our check. Service can use a lot of work.

    Was exceptional food and service. I don’t like the sort of brazen approach to taking my credit card for a reservation of 5 or more and threatening to charge me $30/person for making changes, however. As many in our party of 12 said, that’s too bad because we wouldn’t be willing to come back because of that. But other than that, the food was amazing. Like, really, really good.

    Tried to seat us outside restrooms so asked for a different table. Once we were seated waited for at least 10+ minutes for someone to come and at least take our drinks requests. Ended up asking hostess if anyone was serving our table. After that very attentive. Overall ok not great.
