Everything was great - the food - the branzino was outstanding - the service - the wine list. Outdoor seating was spacious and comfortable. Looking forward to our next visit. Best food on Key Biscayne.

The restaurant is clean and cozy. The food was delicious from appetizer to dessert. The Executive Chef Rosario was attentive and made sure we felt comfortable. Fresh pasta and sauces.

The service and food were excellent. Our waiter was super friendly and attentive. Wis they had a full bar. Would have liked an americano or a Negroni to start. They do have a nice wine list.

We requested a table outside. The outside area was very nice, but we had to move from where we were seated to find a table that was separated sufficiently from the other tables. The manager/owner was not wearing a mask when he came up to our table to greet us. We asked him to please put on a mask and he went inside to do so. The rest of the evening we saw him without his mask or wearing it below his nose. We were very uncomfortable with this since he came up to our table multiple times. The waiter was very nice, but he was wearing his mask below his nose the entire evening. The only person who had his mask on properly was the person delivering the food to the table. This is not a covid safe restaurant and we will not be returning.

The staff and chef were very welcoming and our food and service was fabulous. We sat outside, very intimate setting, good social distancing ang moderate noise level. Lamb chops were an excellent choice for me and my wife enjoyed a fine piece of Sole with lemon butter caper sauce. Side order of potatoes finished off the meal
Apple strudel with ice cream put a final touch to a Memorable holiday dinner. Good selection of wines but no liquor!! Must visit.

Absolutely amazing! Best new spot in Key Biscayne! The food was outstanding, service impeccable and presentation gorgeous. The dishes Chef Rosario created were large in portion and flavor. Everything was fresh and delicious. We will definitely be back next time we are in town!
