Food was great as usual. The older woman at the hostess desk could use a bit more of a smile.

As always, the food was beyond belief, expertly prepared and served. Peter, our server, was witty and attentive and made the evening even better. It is one of our favorite restaurants, not just in Boca but anywhere.

The inside tables are very noisy and the bar is so loud it is hard to talk, so book an outside table. Even with the traffic noise of Palmetto Park, it is much better than sitting inside.

You get what you pay for at this restaurant. Quality of food is top notch. Service is professional, attentive, and welcoming at the same time. Genorous pour on drinks.
We had the veal romana which was one of the best meals I’ve ever had. Also Crab cake with vodka sauce was very good. Wine list was very good as well.

First time in this restaurant for a friends birthday. Food was excellent. However, there were a few disappointments. My friend didn’t want the vegetables side and there was no other option except pasta with an “up charge.” With the already existing prices, telling us that there would be an upcharge for pasta was unacceptable. Further, we ordered coffee, our waiter forgot and brought us the check. We had to remind him that we ordered cappuccino’s. Clearly a very popular restaurant as it was very busy on a Sunday night.i would recommend this restaurant however, don’t see myself returning anytime soon.

We have dined here many times and have always been satisfied with the service and food.
This time we had a waiter named Javier, and he was inattentive and clearly not happy to have 3 adults and a toddler. The tables on each side of us were checked on frequently, and not once did he check on our happiness with the appetizers, or our main course. Meanwhile, the tables on either side of us received considerable attention to their satisfaction. When the check came, he finally asked if we enjoyed our meal. I was not happy with the sauce on the veal marsala and no one asked why I ate only a little. As we were leaving, the neighboring two tables complimented us on the wonderful polite manners of our toddler. No sure if we will go back after such service.

From Valet service to wait staff to food, everything superb.
Marco was excellent server and all the dishes were fresh and high quality.
The complimentary bread, bread sticks , tomato salad was delicious.
Seafood salad, Bronzino, yellowtail oreganata, and their signature dish langostino lobster tails over spinach melted in my mouth.
The limoncello pie was perfect ending. Our go to Italian eatery in Boca for years.

We've been coming here for 15 years. They really are bad with reservations. Always behind 20-40 minutes.
I asked for a special room with a waiter we love because it was my wifes birthday. I even stopped by in person one afternoon to make sure we were set up right for the special occassion. Waited, waited, waited and finally we were sat elsewhere in a louder part of the restaurant. Our favorite waiter helped us out there because he knows us.

This has happened before. I wish they'd be better at scheduling their loyal patrons.

We waited quite a bit for our table to open but it wasn't a deal breaker. Our server was an interesting guy, who explained the menu and specials very well. We really enjoyed the beautifully ripened tomato salad and delicious bread. Entree portions were very generous (be prepared to bring home eats for the next day) and the presentation eye appealing. This was our second visit and we do plan to return.
