    My 9year old granddaughter ordered Ravioli and there was barely enough food to satisfy her, We had to take her for a slice of pizza and ice cream after she had dessert at the restaurant to satisfy her hunger,. She is a normal sized 9 year old and slim so I was disappointed in the quantity of food. Wait staff was slow and décor did not fit the theme of an Italian restaurant. The 3.5% surcharge at the high prices put the icing on the cake. We will be back next year when we vacation in Stone Harbor again.

    It is always good but I wish they did sides with some entrees like chicken francaise. I forget and then when it comes it’s so busy I just don’t bother. My husband got the wrong entree but I think the waiter just didn’t hear him.

    The food was FABULOUS….fresh, cooked and flavored to perfection and served hot and had a great presentation. Our waitress, Leah, was efficiently, friendly and attentive HOWEVER, the host at the front door was awful. Not welcoming, friendly or personable at all, hence the 3 for service. If there were a only Leah, it would have been 5.

    We truly enjoyed our experience at Polpo. We were a table of 12 and dinner was delicious. Service was excellent! Valerie was a delight. So positive and accommodating which often times with a large party that is not the case. She really made our night. Polpo is a family favorite!

    The service was a lot better than we expected from what we had heard. The mussels were obviously pre-cooked and just heated up before they were served, although they were surprisingly good. My risoto was a little disappointing from what I've had elsewhere. The flounder was excellent, but very overpriced for flounder, although it was a "special." The other two meals were ok, but nothing spectacular for what we expected.
