A truly exceptional dining experience. Owners Chef Dario and Maurice came to our table and visited with us and wait until you hear the gifted Maurice sing! The food was beyond amazing. Can't wait until the next time we go. It was like going to Italy without the long trip.

What a fun night this was. Two couples had dinner here recently. The service was spot on. The authentic Italian food was delicious. It was completed by beautiful music provided by our host/owner.

What a great local neighborhood gem!! The food was excellent and the owners and wait staff couldn’t have been nicer, more professional or more accommodating. The decor is fabulous for those that enjoy a “walk back to Italy. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great dinner and an outstanding evening.

We had a wonderful evening and dining experience. This was our first time to the restaurant. The special dish of black ink pasta with squid, shrimp and tomato sauce was outstanding. True Italian dishes and with excellent blends of spices and herb. Highly recommended. Staff were all so pleasant and professional. We have made several referrals already to our friends and family. Thank you for this dining experience.

The food was spectacular. I had the Polo Supremo and the chicken was thick cut and tender. Artichokes were grilled and I've never had any that tender before. But the absolute best was the sauce. I've never tasted anything so good. I complimented Chef Leo on a great meal.

Then we have Maurice LoMonaco with his spectacular voice. He sang two of my favorite songs. One in Italian which I've never heard before.

If you're thinking of going here one night, I've got one word for you, GO!

Folks this is a hidden gem behind the mall and on the outside doesn’t look like much so if you remember not to judge a book by its cover you will be rewarded 👍🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This is an authentic Italian experience! The food is wonderful! The owners go over the top to make sure you are taken care of. It is clear they put the heart and soul into this business. Any negative review would only be from someone who cannot appreciate a fine dining experience.
Don't miss this gem in Port Charlotte.

Eggplant was outstanding and this is coming from an Italian who has eaten food from 2 grandmothers, my own mother, and many Italian restaurants both locally and in Italy. My wife had the special which was ink pasta with salmon and a blush sauce which was also wonderful. Cannot wait to go back. And be sure with this place that you do not judge the book by its cover. The restaurant is beautiful inside and very nicely appointed. And then to top it all off the owner will sing to you and he is very good.

We found this place by accident, thought it was 'just' a pizza place but boy were we surprised. This place is family owned with an amazing chef. I'm sure the pizza's are great (we'll try them sometime), but the food is gourmet and incredibly fresh.

First glance of the building (used to be a drive thru restaurant) and you will wonder what you are getting into.
What you are getting is first rate, made to order, authentic italian. The real deal. Not the cheese and sauce soaked stuff you get everywhere else in town.
excellent pizza (they spend 3 days making the dough) and even better eggplant. Thank you to Maurice, the owner, for taking a risk and preparing eggplant the way it is supposed to be - without the breading and frying of the eggplant. This is fabulous, melt in your mouth eggplant and makes you think you are in a little italian bistro in Sicily.
if you don't go for the food, go just to listen to Maurice sing. WOW! He's a fabulous tenor. So much fun.
We had a wonderful evening. Everyone makes you feel so comfortable and at home. We will go again and again to support this wonderful little, hidden gem.

Both the food and the wine were excellent. Although the restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, inside it is delightful, warm and charming. The eggplant parmigiana was the best I've ever eaten. The chef and the owner are friendly and wonderful hosts. The owner is an excellent singer and guitar player and we enjoyed hearing him sing. I highly recommend this restaurant. It is a treasure, especially in Port Charlotte.

The food is excellent and that paired with the friendly and attentive staff make it a dining pleasure. The owner greets everyone during your dining experience and performs several songs while you are dining making everything a most memorable experience. It is our go to place for fine dining and for entertaining special friends when they come to visit. I highly recommend it for a unique dining experience.

The food was excellent as was the service.Based in the outside of the building, when we walked in, we thought it may not be so good. But, the food and service were absolutely FABULOUS. Choices were home made and delicious. Even the gluten free pasta that 2 in our party has ordered.
We look forward to bringing our friends and in- laws next time.

The food was superb, the atmosphere delightful and then hearing Maurice sing was amazing! The beauty, finesse and power of his voice is perfection. It was thrilling to be able to hear such beauty in an intimate and lovely setting. We have been back again and again making sure our family and friends have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful experience and excellent food.
