Love this restaurant. The food is consistently good with some unusual options. The daily specials are a good value with a choice of fresh fish or meat.

Delicious Italian in North Florida! I was in town from NYC to visit my family and delighted to share a wonderful meal made with quality ingredients with them.

Being from out of town, it was a little tricky finding the restaurant at night, but our google maps found it for us. The restaurant is spacious with definite Italian decor. Because of high ceilings it was very loud. However, our pizza was delicious, the wine was good and the service was great.

It used to be our favorite but we'd like to see the menu changed up. It's getting a bit boring. Yes, there are nightly specials but we don't know what they are prior to arriving. When this restaurant used to be open for lunch and dinner, it had two distinct menus with different items. We much preferred the lunch entrees and would welcome them introduced into the dinner menu to change it up a bit.

The food here is always delicious and is not your ordinary red sauce Italian American menu. Still a go to place but please give us a more seasonal menu.

Menu was limited. Wasn’t a comfortable setting. Didn’t have that cozy feeling. Too open and spaced out. Very modern restaurant. Only good thing was our waiter was an older Italian gentleman who knew Italian foods and very intertaining.

Lovely dinner for two. Everything was delicious. The housemade pasta - lasagne- was mouthwatering. My husband LOVED his short rib dish as well.

Always enjoyable and the service is generally consistent. But we got a reminder why we usually visit on weekdays and avoid weekends. Just so darn noisy when its busy. All entrees were good, but the lamb Osso Buco was amazing. I don't remember the servers name, but he was excellent. A pro.

This gem of a restaurant might have been the best part of our stop in St. Augustine. Beautiful venue, lovely wood tables, booths and bar. Able to take large parties, we were just 3, but the noise level did rise. Diverse menu with many choice for anyone’s pallet. Wine list was nice with some esthetic choices. Make a stop here if you are in the St.Augustine A1A area!

I invited friends to have dinner with me. Of course we wanted to talk and have a good time drinking wine and have dinner. The food was good however, but the waitress was pushy and was rushing us, like she wanted to say: Eat, pay and get out of here. That is almost eatery behavior. I'll think twice going back.

The food is good - not amazing - but good. Excellent sauce for pasta. Also - appreciated the gluten-free options. Great service, however. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable. In a tourist town - this is a good choice.

We enjoyed our table in the bar area. The tre mozzarella was varied and each bite was terrific. The beet salad, arugula and blue cheese crumbles salad was outstanding. My wife had the Frutti di Mare with a white sauce and I had the red sauce seafood astew with a 5 oz lobster tail. Each were accompanied with fresh pasta produced at the restaurant. Both were very tasty. Pricing was more than fair. We’ll be back.

I saw reviews and on the whole they were good. We arrived, seated, given menus already wanted drink orders!! Sheets of brown paper were placemats, lazy. Server brought us bread and dipping oil, every Time paper moved oil spilled all over. The side of roasted cauliflower was rock hard and asparagus risotto which was salty risotto with asparagus on top was undercooked. What a shame we picked it for our anniversary dinner.

We had to sit at a very small table with our nose compressed up against the brick wall. Other than that that was a great dinner and the service was excellent. We did have to wait a long time for food but our waiter was really a good guy.

Frequent customer. Always great food. Last two visits the waiters were not too great. This visit ordered 2 appetizers and he forgot to put one in.
Hoping this trend does not continue. Will try again because of food quality and past great service.

Outside needs cleaning up. Inside ambiance is very nice. Service was not up to standard. Our waitress would just come stand at the table and stare at us waiting for us to tell her what we wanted to order. She wouldn’t talk to us. Had the cinghale and it tasted more like a Moracan dish than Italian. Pizza was great.

Nice clean restaurant, but kind of reminds me of a school dining hall. It restaurant is open plan but it makes it quite boring. No atmosphere, needs music. There were not many people in restaurant but service was poor. Waiters not as attentive as they should have been. The owner is pacing up and down in his shorts and tee shirt when he could have been paying more attention to his guests and his attire more suitable. We paid bill and left. No one around to say thank you. Would I go again- No!
