Huge servings. Everything we had was fabulous. Made a reservation and got right in. Food was delicious. I got the veal parmesan and couldn't believe how much food was on the plate. Was a great experience and will go back.

Great dinner experience for a family group of all ages. Service was outstanding! Food was fantastic!! Not run of the mill fare. Fresh food made in house. We will definitely return next time we’re in Destin!

Wonderful Italian food, great value, loved our adorable and friendly server. We love this place. It’s super busy so make a reservation. It was crowded with families this night, but we appreciated it because we had our kids! Usually it’s filled with adults and couples. Go here!

It was my first time there. For a casual Italian place in Destin it was pretty good. Waiter was great. Caesar salad was enormous. It was good after I added lemon and more parm. The cannaloni with vodka sauce was good. Could have been hotter. I will go back

We ate outside- that's why its quiet. Otherwise- its a noisy restaurant- like most these days. We had a gluten-free crust pizza- buyer beware- they are tiny. It was good and we loaded it with meat but not greasy. Amazing! If you like thin crust pizza- this place should be your choice. I hate doughy pizza and even their non-gluten free is fab.

We had an 8:30 reservation on a very busy Saturday night and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server was excellent- we had drinks, water, bread and apps quickly. We appreciated that they let our 19 year old order off the kids menu as a big bowl of past would have been too much. We all enjoyed our food and would return again.

We made reservations several weeks, if not a month, ahead of time. We were seated outside at a strip mall next to a weight loss center poster in incredibly uncomfortable chairs. No fans and it was very hot. We realize it is a crazy busy time for the area, but feel reservations made far in advance should be given decent seating. Bread was great, actual meal was just ok. Overpriced meal for the experience.

The food was amazing. I was a little nervous with it being located in a strip mall, but everything was perfect. It was busy so service was a little slow but that is to be expected.

Our daughter didn’t get serve food for an hour and 30 minutes, they said the pizza guy was busy and did not make her dinner. We left without actually eating her pizza! Worst service ever.

Best Italian food in Destin. It reminded me of my Sicilian grandmother’s cooking. Our food was hot and fresh. The bread and garlic olive oil dip starters were delicious. The restaurant is impeccably clean and extremely well staffed. Thank you for our best dining experience in Destin.

Well worth the trip. Holy cow it was the best Italian restaurant I've ever been to. The bread and oil was so tasty. The calamari was fresh and crisp. My husband had the chicken parm and I had the ravioli. Both were best we've ever tasted. We canceled existing reservations for another place we have just so we can come back again before we leave . Clean. Friendly. Authentic. I cannot say enough great things. 💘

Sat outside; extremely quiet...therefore, when moving chairs around on the pavement...we caused a lot of noise. 😬 Other than that, we had a great time and the food was delish! Becca did an outstanding job taking care of us.
