The food and service were wonderful! We ordered the foccacia (although they give you bread with a very flavorful olive oil garlic/herb dip) which was wonderful. We had the lasagna and fettuccine bolognese. Both were excellent!

I like the ambiance of this place, but felt our food was average. Ceasar salad didn’t have much flavor. Bolognese Omer fettuccine was ok, nothing special. Chicken Marsala didn’t have a lot of taste, chicken was over cooked. Pazzo salad was very good. Hate to say it but there are many better options for Italian in Destin.

The Menu had tons of selections and the server suggestions were very good. Over all this was very good. This was a vacation reservation.

Last year we dined in the tent outside and loved our food and the atmosphere. This year we didn’t like the lasagna or the special: seafood angel hair. The lasagna was drowning in sauce and the special was bland. We were a little disappointed. Wish we had ordered pizza.

My "GO TO" Italian restaurant. Every dish is excellent every time we go. The specials are always a delightful surprise. Authentic as it comes, down to the pizza, Italian beer, and my favorite; tiramisu. Highly recommend.

We booked a table to celebrate our anniversary while on vacation. The food was great, nice wine list and good service. There were several large groups who seemed to be having a great time. Our frustration was just in the ambiance. It was so very loud inside that we didn’t talk to each other much because we couldn’t hear each other. If you are looking to have some great food and a good time, this is your place! If you want a relaxing, romantic dinner, this is not your place. This is not a complaint, as we really enjoyed our food and great service, just a word for those who are looking for a different type of atmosphere.

The food was fair, pastas are not homemade and sauces are already cooked , it was literally 5 minutes from ordering and food arrival. Not much flavor. The best thing I saw was the pizza wished I had ordered that . Staff was very good though

Wonderful restaurant. Our server, Julien was excellent. The food was amazing. I had the grouper special over Parmesan risotto with a lobster sauce. My friend had a classic Italian dish, Shrimp Pomadoro over Angel hair pasta. He said it was the best he’s ever had. Oh, and Julien recommended the Calamari as our appetizer. Excellent.
For dessert we shared the Tiramisu.
Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!

This is a hidden treasure in Destin. The reviews are all spot on. The food, service and atmosphere are all amazing! We had 10 people and were scheduled for an 8pm reservation but due to weather our plans before got cancelled. They accommodated us and sat us at 6pm and we were not disappointed! The special Carmel cheesecake was the bomb and the Italian food was like grandmas cooking 🤌!

Restaurant was busy even at 8:15 on a Tuesday night, but, we had reservations so were seated immediately. The service was quick and the waiter was friendly. Food was outstanding and the price was incredibly reasonable. Zero complaints. A great dinner at a great restaurant.

Our server was very good and checked in on us regularly. My wife's salmon was overcooked, and the replacement was also overcooked. The rest of our party enjoyed their dishes. I thought the pasta could have been cooked in saltier water, but aside from that I was pleased with my dish.

All food was very good except chicken dishes…chicken tasted rubbery/warmed up. Food came less than 10 mins after ordering which seemed almost too quick. Felt a bit rushed to turn over the table. Signature dishes and appetizers were delicious. Service was very good!
