    Excellent unique Italian food, highly reccomend, price was very good, this was a very good value! The only thing I don't reccomend is the dessert "the glutton" it's exactly what it sounds like, while it's only $10 amd can serve 4 people, theres too much going on. It is a dessert calzone filled with mascapone, caramel, banana, Nutella, and chocolate topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. There was waaaay too much going on with it which ik is the idea for it but it had too many competing strong flavors and was a little confusing. Other than this dessert everything was excellent and we will be returning!

    We were excited to go back as we have had several good meals in the past. However this time was not as good. Pork chop overcooked, Linguine with clams flavorless, the broccoli spears were too tough to eat. The appetizers boards were not as full as we have gotten in the past. Also we had a party of seven and asked for two separate checks which is common everywhere in FL. They said they can't do it. I hope this review is helpful to them and we can practice some forgiveness and try them again in the future.

    Good experience with six of us. Spezzitino, wild boar, salmon, shrimp, etc were all well prepared. Trevor was attentive, knowledgable, and personal. One drink was made wrong....a Negroni with no vermouth. Will only go here on a weekday. Learned that lesson a long time ago.

    Really love this place and the food. My only complaint is the A/C! It never seems to be working. We’ve been here maybe 4-5 times in the past three years and the A/C never seems to be able to keep up so it’s hot and sticky inside. They even have a sign on the door about the A/C problem..but this is years now. Please please please fix you A/C so we can come more regularly.

    We have been here a few times for a date night and are always pleasantly surprised. St. Augustine isn’t the most foodie of towns, but this is a solid, upscale, yet approachable Italian dining spot. You can keep it casual and just get pizza and beers or have a special occasion dinner with multiple courses and a bottle of wine. I love the flexibility in experience that this restaurant offers, and their food/drinks are delicious. I will say that their dinner portions aren’t huge, so if you’re especially hungry that day I recommend an appetizer or a salad to start. Excellent wine list as well! I’ve read a lot of complaints about the AC not being up to par, but we didn’t have any issues.

    I made a reservation for a table of 6 in the bar, knowing that the main dining room is cavernous and loud. Four of us arrived early to be told that there was no table for us in the bar. Instead, we would be seated in the main dining room, even though I explicitly requested the bar as per my Open Table reservation. We sat and the young female server did not have a very good attitude. Three of us ordered cocktails right away, while the fourth in our party was still deciding. The server did not return to our table for another 10 minutes. After about 20 minutes our three drinks arrived and she took the cocktail order from our fourth. At least another 25 minutes passed before the fourth drink arrived, despite asking our server repeatedly when it would be ready. It was obvious she was avoiding our table, no apologies for the wait. She kept telling us that it hadn’t been made yet. How long does it take to make one of their own cocktails off their menu? Frankly, the bartender making the drinks did not do a good job. I had the Hot and Dirty martini and I had to request more olive juice to make it “dirty” as described, and the two gentlemen in our party ordered the old fashioned on their cocktail menu and said it was watered down. We have been to this restaurant many times and have had great service before, being sure to avoid the main dining room. The drinks have usually been spot on, but not tonight! Our server was not personable at all and I had to wonder why she got into the business of waiting tables! When our food arrived, though not all together, it was tasty. I would say be cautious. It is hit or miss in the main dining room and I would suggest going during the week rather than the weekend. We would have been better sitting outside, would have gotten a different server, and would have been able to hear each other if the bar was that full!

    Michelle was the perfect server (as well as multi-tasking as the barkeep). The place was sweaty hot, but they placed fans around to help with the heat. The food (by Chef Andrew) was outstanding - we had the bruschetta, Caesar salad and Lobster Ravioli and finished with the best Tiramisu we have ever tasted. This will be our new go-to place for our special occasions!

    Outstanding meal for 8 adults and one toddler. Exceptional service by one very busy server who accommodated our late arrivals, semi-fussy orders, and one birthday cake. The food was excellent-salmon, pasta, ravioli, pizza-all good. I only reduced ambiance by one star because the overall space was loud. Everything else was 5 star!

    We’ve dined here several times over the years that they’ve been in business and have made the observation that it’s slipping. It’s time to update the menu and quality. Maybe it’s just a sign of the times. Overall experience was just average.

    Saw this place via Google maps and it had a lot of good reviews. So we figured for our date night we’d give it a try. We’re from out of town and were looking for somewhere nice, but casual. When we arrived, the air conditioning was not working. It was very warm. We were seated promptly, as we had a reservation. Service however was slow at first. It took at least 5 minutes or so before our server was able to even acknowledge we had been seated. We ordered a glass of white sangria each and started with the charcuterie plate. Both came out in a somewhat timely fashion. Sangria was good, but the charcuterie board, while ample, left a lot to be desired. Main courses came, I had the ravioli special and my gf had the ravioli zucca. Both dishes were very delicious. Plates were nicely presented and portions were pretty spot on. Dessert came…we both ordered a tiramisu. We were presented with plastic “to-go” containers. The server apologized and offered to comp one of our glasses of sangria. All in all, had the air conditioning been working it would have been a nice dining experience. HOWEVER…later in the evening…about 30 minutes after eating…both my gf and became very ill. So it definitely left a bad taste in our mouths figuratively and literally.

    We have eaten here several times, we love the food, the staff is great, the restaurant is attractive but it is way too hot inside. We understand they have pizza ovens which give off a lot of heat, but trying to enjoy your meal while sweat drips down your face is not fun. We ended up paying our bill just so we could sit outside and continue our conversation. You know it’s bad when it’s cooler outside in Florida in July.

    I though the food was very good and I thought the price was appropriate for the quality. My only personal critique is that all the pasta dishes are swimming in sauce, which takes away from the rest of the dish. Also, the menu doesn’t describe some of the dishes very well. My dish came with a spicy Fra Diablo, which would have been nice to know beforehand. The restaurant is also uncomfortably hot. Time to upgrade the a/c system-it was miserable.
