Really great pasta. I had pesto, the wife had bolegnese, my buddy had a mushroom sauce with his parpadella, and his wife had the crab ravioli. All were great and the service was very good. Good chianti and bread. Prices were fair as well. Will visit again the next time we visit our friends that live across the street.

A large restaurant with a small bar area. Advise to book in advance. Extensive menu with large portions of good, well flavoured Italian food. The service was excellent too. Very well priced too.

We booked a table here while on honeymoon from the U.K. Months prior to NYE expecting something exciting and fun. We got neither, and we were very disappointed. The food was good, but the atmosphere was non existent. It felt as though they were just looking forward to getting out and home to celebrate themselves! The whole experience for us... More

We made reservations and were seated promptly. The service was great and the food was very good. We both had the grouper and the kids had pasta dishes. We sat inside. I do recommend it for a nice Italian dinner. There is parking in the shopping center.

What a great place to welcome the New Year! I visited last year with a friend. This time to celebrate NYE with my husband. It was very busy but we had reservations. We ended up eating outdoors. Wonderful heaters and to be outside on New Years Eve when your from New England, is a dream. The owner was so welcoming.... More

I couldn't disagree with the previous review more. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. All four of us dinning had different meals and were all excellent and came out piping hot. If you like Italian food I would highly recommend.

There is always an upscale Italian joint in a beach town. This is it for Clearwater. The problem is the staff doesn't seem to care if you there or not; and quality of the food reflected the same attitude. We had six couples, made a reservation, and arrived on time. Felt ignored from the moment we got there. I had... More

We'd been wanting to try this one, was lovely. Indoor & outdoor seating, flowers, Christmas tree, & waiters in vest & ties, guess that makes it fine dining, lol. But the food WAS very good & pretty pricey. Our waiter was Josh, polite & attentive. He brought us veal saltinbocca that my hubby loved, bruschetta that I loved, & we... More

Waiters in black tie, white shirt, black pants. Pretty fancy? But, the setting is more beach-like. Food and drink prices match the waiters. If the whole scene was toned down, prices dropped, this place would get a higher rating. With tip, two of the specials, one appetizer and four drinks (two wines and two beers, our bill was $109.

Both born and raised in Italy, our founders Cesare and Carlo, know what an authentic Italian meal means. Family and friends gathering around to enjoy each others company with a good glass of wine and the perfect dish. Savor Italy's finest flavors including our award winning lasagna and pastas. Real and hard to find Italian specialities such as pappardelle with imported porcini and wild mushrooms, veal ossobuco, filet mignon in a Brandy sauce, fresh fish and seafood, veal classics and homemade desserts. You can dine in or "al fresco" overlooking the water and Sand Key Bridge while being pampered by our professional staff.
