We had early reservations 5:15. Unfortunately we hit a detour then got lost. We arrived at 5:45. We were told that reservations are only held for 15 minutes. Completely fair in my opinion. We explained getting lost and the manager told us he would let us sit but we had an hour. He was trying to help us out and... More

Arrived with reservation at opening. Party of 10 for birthday celebration. Parking was a breeze but when busy, valet. Clean lines inside,yet traditional feel. Amazing service!! Cute page boy caps on servers - very northeast, old school city look to all the servers. Makes sense given owner! Now the food I didn't see a menu - family style this visit... More

Straight to the point: Food- just ok, NOT great. Service- HORRIBLE! You get what you pay for doesn't hold true at this place. Over priced for the quality. I would NOT go back for a free meal! We visited the location at the Paris Las Vegas,and its way better. Maybe because it's corporate now.

The food here is incomparable & consistently AMAZING. There is no comparison to any other Italian restaurant in Florida. The quality of the products they speaks volumes when you take your first bite. You have to like a LOUD party like atmosphere when eating here. There is NO other place like it.

We stopped in on a Friend's recommendation and we weren't disappointed, the fresh mozzarella/tomato parfait app was light and delicious, my pasta ala vodka was on point, the Eliche pasta was cooked perfectly al dente, wine list is a little pricy but a good selection, service was great, no salt and pepper shakers on the table, the way it should...

Great venue with a great buzzy ambiance on our Sunday night visit (although I hear it can very loud Thursday through Saturdays). We sat at the bar. The cocktails were excellent, the service was excellent and the food was excellent.

We just came into town and headed to one of our favorite restaurants! It was pretty busy for a Thursday night so we decided to eat at the bar. The meatballs are the best in the planet and the gnocchi is so amazing you can't stop eating it. The shrimp scampi is consistently out of this world as it has... More

Don't waste your money. Average Italian American food and extremely rude service. They make you feel like they are doing you a favor while charging $32 for a mediocre veal parmigiana! Overrated food and sub par service. Spend your money elsewhere where you are treated with respect and made feel like a king when you spend your hard earned money.... More

Service was very good, the young man said he was new to the business about 2 years. Did a great job. Food was good to average nothing over the top. Can get loud which is not my thing, but could be yours.
