The location is easy to get to with ample parking. This old two story home was converted into an Italian Restaurant. I am certain at one moment in time it was fabulous. Today it is tired and other than the father (owner), the balance of the staff that I can only surmise are family members are clueless about waiting tables.... More

After reading reviews for this restaurant I wasn't very excited to go. We had a large party for dinner. The service was pretty slow but I did enjoy the food. Calamari, bruschetta, gnocchi. Seems to be run by the owner and his wife. They were the only workers there, hence the slow service. Since we called ahead for reservations, my... More

We've eaten here before but tonight everything was well below average. Entered the front door through smoke, owner was taking a smoke break. Advised the owner I had a coupon and he seated us in the downstairs dining room. Seemed to be disturbed because we didn't order wine. We shared a mixed salad that was pretty ordinary. My wife's shrimp... More

This place may be more suited for a romantic dinner out, but after the service and lack of hospitality we experienced, I won't return and I can't recommend for groups to choose to dine. We had a part of 30 or so with an expectation for family style Italian food. Instead we were crammed in a space upstairs, there were... More

We had a group of 8 (4 couples) in town for the Citrus Bowl. We all arrived from different cities and stayed at the Crowne Plaza downtown. This restaurant had been recommended, and we were able to get a reservation for that evening. We were seated upstairs in an almost private space, and our server was delightful. We ordered three...

First, I'd like to start off saying that if you blink while driving by this place you will miss it. This is place is a hidden gem. The food was so well prepared and flavored just right it almost upsets me that there weren't more people here spending their time here. Everything from the food to the decor was on... More

We head to downtown Orlando for concerts and the symphony and have been looking for a go-to place for some time. After reading the reviews, I was somewhat skeptical but thought we would give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised and will definitely be returning. The restaurant is in an old home and has several outdoor seating areas. The... More

Very quaint restaurant. It was a beautiful Orlando evening, so we sat out on the patio. The wine menu is fairly limited, which is why I deducted a star. Otherwise, the food was wonderful. The house salad had a creamy italian dressing (they use a very light hand when dressing the salad, so you may need to ask for more)... More

My husband and I hosted a rehearsal dinner for about 30 guests. The owners were accommodating, the servers were friendly and efficient. The food was incredible - freshly made, served hot, authentic cuisine. Homemade tiramisu that was amazing. The prices were reasonable - well worth a visit. Many thanks to the owner and chef.

We found this restaurant on Restaurant.com. Charming place - set in an old house with only 6 tables. Dark burgundy walls with nice paintings and, of course, the obligatory Dean Martin singing That's Amore!! My chicken dish was excellent (tender and lightly sauced with lemon and capers) and my husband's sausage with vodka sauce was great also. The bread is... More
