    The food and service are excellent. Important to decide before you go - - - - formal dining room (where long pants and collared shirt are required) or bar area or outside (no dress code) They may be the only place on the island with a dress code, which, by the way, is rather nice if you are celebrating something special.

    This meal should have been much better than it was. There is no excuse for a restaurant specializing in Italian seafood to overcook both the fish and the seafood in two different dishes, and not just by a little. The wine steward could not get the cork out of the bottle I originally selected (he did not have the proper tool and I did not bring mine with me as I would have done if I had brought the bottle). It was the last bottle. The alternative I selected was fine but younger and more expensive. We passed on dessert. (And the next day had three perfectly prepared seafood dishes at a different restaurant, so it’s not like the clientele don’t care.)

    The lovely formal Italian palatial decor is out of character for Marco Island but a nice change of pace to entertain our visitors. The menu is extensive focusing on Italian seafood offerings. I especially liked the pacche pasta with seafood. Waitstaff is attentive. It is expensive although worth it.

    PHENOMENAL. I made a same-day reservation with a note I was planning to propose. The staff reserved me a more private table in a beautiful room for the occasion. The management, wait staff, and hosts were all unbelievable and all in on the occasion! Special thank you to our waiter, Vlad, who made the dinner extra special, we received the best service I’ve ever had at a restaurant. The restaurant provided us complimentary champagne and dessert following the proposal. On top of the top-notch staff, all of the food was incredible. We will be coming back from Boston! Huge thank you to all of the staff!

    This was our first time here. we arrived we were greeted right away and made to feel very special and important. We were showed to a table which was very nice because we were early and didn't think we would get in early. The service was really good and our server started out wonderful! We ordered just about everything. Apps and salad came together, hoped for it to be coursed. Both were wonderful. The problem came with the main course, the pasta in the dish was cooked but cold. We did not see our server at all after the runner delivered our main course. We ate the main course (tastee but not hot) when our server did appear, we told him about the temp of the pasta and he asked why we didn't tell him. We commented we didn't see you until right then. He did say that was true but then avoided us from then on. The GM did come over and offered us a free dessert. The cold dish was $60 dollars and we felt the situation was not handled well for a restaurant of this caliber.
