Too loud - not a great place to have a conversation due to the live music - and the food was pretty expensive for the quality, which was mediocre.

Great spot with very good food. I had the Lobster Fra Diavlo on Black Linguine with Clams and Mussels. Being from the northeast I forgot the lobster would not be Maine - but it was still tasty. Great entertainment too!

Been there before and liked it
Last night order was wrong and then were told that a dish that last time had no onion now has onions, a food allergy for us. Not sure whether we risked getting sick the last time or if ingredients really changed.

Located on “the strip” it is easy to get to and get in. We did have reservations but that was only to get open table points. Service was quick and food was good. Nothing to write home about but was reasonable in price and got a 10% coupon walking in. For the money it was fine.

The food was disgusting, uninspired, and over priced. A true tourist trap if I've ever seen one. My chicken dinner couldn't have been made worse it was cooked up in a middle school cafeteria. My girlfriend tried the gnocchi which, though a generous serving, tasted like a mixture of canned pasta sauce and supermarket bacon bites, also the gratuity was added without our consultation, pretty presumptuous if you ask me considering that we had to beg our waitress for the free bread that was supposed to come with our meals. Please do not waste your time at this overpriced microwave special Cafe and enjoy one of the many other authentic and delicious restaurants Fort Lauderdale has to offer

Our meal was excellent and the service started out well but then she was assigned a large group of people which impacted her ability to check on us. Her knowledge of the menu was great and her recommendations were good. Live music was very loud so it was hard to talk with my wife. Also, because of it’s location you get quite a few people of the branch that have enjoyed beverages throughout the day, some very loud

Overall a good place, food was very good, service was excellent. Location right on strip in Ft Lauderdale. Only slight negative is that it’s next to noisy pub.
But the restaurant also had their own live music which was good and served to drown out next door.

The food was pretty good, as usual. Had the calamari, B&B Burger, and Fried Mahi sandwich. All were great, though the calamari had a bit too much oil.

It's currently Spring Break, so A1A is busier and noisier than normal, so if that affects you, sitting on the patio isn't advised. In this weather though, who wants to sit indoors.

A bit disappointed that they add a 15% service charge to every cheque. Will dissuade most from adding a tip for the server.

Loved this place! We were there during spring break so people watching very interesting! We had great service. The music was island music. Perfect for outside dining. The food was delicious! My daughter and I shared chicken parmigiana. Plenty for both of us. Have to say it was the best I ever had. Our friend had a pasta dish with shrimp. She ate every bite. Will definitely be back if we return to Ft. Lauderdale.

Saxophone player was good, but seemed to be on a break more than he was actually entertaining. Also, we are not from this state, and we were shocked that smoking was allowed on a patio where people are dining, in both the covered & open sections. Not pleasant, or healthy.

Thanks to Spazio for hosting such a large group of 8. We had a lovely time and our server was very friendly with his slide show of specials that were available and was very attentive. Live music in the background was nice and food was tasty.

Casual Dining on the beach. Nice menu selection. I had the Chicken parm. It was good. The chicken was pounded thin, and actually came out with a crunch which is usually not the case. Prices were reasonable considering the location.

Excited to have my out of town agency experience the Ft Lauderdale beach scene after being in meetings all day. Quite disappointed upon arrival to find our reservation cancelled. I was called 4 times by an unknown number and because I was in meetings all day, I wasn't to take the call.

We were a few min early for reservation for 12 at 7:15 and they had already given away our table. They ended up seating us outside at two separate tables. The live music was great but the food service was very slow. Food tasted great so the evening was not lost and the cool breeze was nice with a great view of the Super moon.
