    I ordered a glass of wine. Then after 10 minutes (no wine yet) waitress pressed us to order. We order an appetizer and our entrees. Within 5 minutes all food was delivered at the same time. I sent my entre back and said I wanted to get my wine and appetizer at that time only. I got my wine and then all the food again. I sent my entre back since there was not room on the table with the just arrived appetizer. Later I got my entre. The whole experience made me feel like that I was being rushed to turn a table. A dining experience is more than the food. Give the customer a chance to actually enjoy your restaurant.

    The service was good, atmosphere nice. I made a reservation for 2 for outside but when my date couldn’t make it, they tried to put me inside. I had the zuppetta do Pesce soup, which was VERY salty, and the Paccheri della mamma, which was tasty. The timing of my food was off & my entree arrived before I was finished with my soup- nothing some additional management from the kitchen cannot fix.

    Had not been to Destin since pandemic and was looking forward to this. It did NOT disappoint. The veal saltimbocca is the best I have ever had and it is a huge serving. Absolutely delicious. Difficult to not devour it all. Had to force myself to take some home. The atmosphere and decor are fabulous as well. Our server (forget his name but he was from Columbia) was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable.

    Delicious!! Very loud in the main dining area. I understand using a CC to secure a reservation, but a $30 fee per person for a change or cancellation? That’s obscene and I’m used to very nice restaurants in New Orleans.

    The food was very good but the experience sitting outside was not. The seating is on the side walk and in addition to the the sun shining in our eyes at 7:00 p.m., we had the heat and smell of the car engines parked right next to us. It was so hot my wife could not eat. We will come back again and for indoor dining.

    Once we were seated it took about 20-30 minutes before our waitress acknowledged us. We were seated in-between two large tables. We felt ignored. Other tables with bread service and water refills, wait staff ignored me trying to eave at them as they stood in-between the dining rooms. That was until after we ordered then it was like we were rushed. The waitress came by several times as did other staff asking if we are finished several times trying to take our plates. The food was great and as a local in a tourist town I want to come back but I don’t know.

    The food was delicious as always. We are local and visit quite often. We had reservations this evening and we arrived on time. We were placed in the new part of the restaurant. It felt very out of place and cold. The ambience was not as warm or intimate as the original side. We will make sure to request the original side next time.

    We ended eating at the bar because there was no wait. My husband and I both got the Grouper special and was excellent. They definitely could have used another bartender, the girls there were extremely busy. My only complaint is the dry bread, they need to step up their bread game. Would definitely come back again.

    Beautiful and romantic ambiance for dates. We made reservation on Opentable last minute and got seated right away on a Saturday night in a busy Destin tourist area. Service is excellent because they have staff walking around constantly making sure your table is clean and the owner does the same thing. He keeps an eye on every table to make sure everything is OK. We have been to Italy several times and eaten lots of Italian food there. I can attest that the food is very authentic and price is very reasonable. The chef also accommodates your special requests for certain way you want to food cooked. This was our first time here and we will definitely return for many more times.
