We had reservations but still had to wait. That was disappointing. The food was very good as always. Our server was good. My only issue was having to wait and that we were put in a small booth when our reservation was for 3. That made the table crowded.

Great evening out to celebrate Valentine's Day. As usual, the food was excellent. My wife and I have visited several times. The service was slightly unresponsive and slow, but overall a knowledgable wait staff that excelled when they stopped at the table. Nice ambience with a pizza oven and bar dominating the dining room. The one negative to the layout is the closeness of the tables. The tables are extremely close together. Management should remove tables to allow more intimacy. Despite the negatives, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice night out. Great place. We will return in the near future.

Went there on Valentines Day. Price, quantity, atmosphere, service was all good. I was looking for good Italian food. I love lasagna, I get it anytime it’s available when I go out to eat. It was very bland. It was not spiced up at all for Italian. Wife’s dish was also bland tasting. My lasagna was not as good as Stouffer’s.

Pleasant surroundings. Nice greeting. Immediately served delicious warm bread with flavored olive oil. A very good Caesar salad created high expectations for the pasta entrees, but they didn’t quite get there. The basic marinara sauce was good and the pasta was fine but not really rich or tasty enough. I would definitely go back, maybe try something different.

The homemade pasta is the best I have found in Destin. I like the way they do regular and small salads, although the small salad is still enough for two! The pizza also is one of the best.

It was a birthday dinner for two and I made a note of that with the reservation. That was never observed or acknowledge.
We were seated instantly, and water, bread, and olive oil dip (very tasty, with just the right amount of garlic) were shortly on the table. These are the signs of a good restaurant. There was a full bottle of water also on the table, so we could refill our glasses without the assistance of a waiter or asking for it.
We had a fettuccini Alfredo and a mussels bean soup, Both were excellent, although the fettuccini was a bit too rich to my taste (but that's just me) and the dish supposed to be rich.
With two (large) glasses of Pinot Grigio, the check with a 20% tip came to $66. Very reasonable.
Wouldn't hesitate to visit this restaurant again or recommend it to my friends. It is also very conveniently located (ample parking) to visitors/residents of the Destin-Miramar Beach area.

This was a birthday celebration. The attention given us by the staff was extraordinary and my guest was actually surprised by the birthday tiramisu ... and the singing. The food was excellent - I can honestly say that this is now our favorite area Italian restaurant.

The night started off a little rocky, but turned out to be very good. We had reservations for 4 for 5:30 PM. Upon arrival (about 10 minutes early), there were many tables available. We were asked to wait, which was fine except there is no where to wait except by the door. We were in the way of people coming in and people leaving. The hostess stand was right at the entrance and so were we and everyone else who was waiting. It became a bit uncomfortable for everyone. The manager seemed a little stressed. We were seated promptly at 5:30. It took a little while to be served, but not an unacceptable wait. We ordered calamari for our appetizer and it was very good. The bread and oil and salads were also very good. All of us loved the house made dressing. They have a nice wine selection and we chose a bottle of Merlot. For entrees we had Pappardelle Dello Chef = excellent. The pasta was nice and light and sauce was very tasty. We had the Paccheri Della Mamma = okay. The shrimp were over cooked and the sauce was a bit bland. Our friends had the eggplant parmesan which they rated okay, and the fettuccine bolognese which they said was excellent. For dessert we shared the nutella calzone and requested some vanilla ice cream to go with it. They really should serve this with ice cream routinely. It was pretty good. The special was a blueberry cake which was excellent. The cake was nice a moist and full of flavor. There are not a lot of really good italian restaurants here. We will be back.

Stumbled across this restaurant while in town for a couple of days. Wow. What a find. Tremendous authentic Italian. This isn’t New York Italian. No offense. This is the real deal. The service was exceptional and food had amazing flavor.

Absolutely no problem with the reservation. We were seated upon arrival. Greeted by the waitstaff after we sat. It was extremely crowded and very noisy due to the fact no doubt that it was Christmas Eve.

I was very disappointed in my food. Presentation was nice but lacked flavor.

The room was decorated for Christmas complete with a tree in the middle of the restaurant. As far as a”special” place to go - having a huge bar area with a tv playing some sport game - it didn’t make me feel like it was a very special evening. Not somewhere where you need to dress up to go to.
