    Even though this is an Italian restaurant and their Italian dishes are superb; their beef filet is the best I have ever had! It is melt in your mouth tender. Mine was covered in large pieces of crab meat. The tiramisu was devine!

    We had the shrimp carbonara and the lasagna and it was all excellent. Our waiter, Christian, was top-notch. He was attentive and had a cheerful attitude.

    The best restaurant in Galveston and probably some of the best food we have had in a while, that’s coming from 2 people who just came back from Paris and ate their way through the city. This will be our staple go to restaurant from now on.

    Always a great experience. We love “Wine Down Wednesday’s” and it’s a regular mid week wine date ❤️

    Service was bad-ordered drinks never got them. We ate early so we could get in and out. Requested vault room but guess only way to get it is if you do the wine safe thing. 2nd time here-very disappointed
