We have very few restaurant selections in the south end of St. Pete, this being one of the few sit down restaurants with actual tablecloths. It is ok for very casual Italian but nothing spectacular.

Plain and simple review for my plain and simple meal. I ordered the spaghetti and meatballs added the extra plate fee to share with my wife. Food came out fast, very fast, and was good. Not sure ill be coming back as the atmosphere was...More

A diverse, but very traditional Italian menu, done well. My husband had the veal cacciatore, which was subtly herby and smoky, rather than the one-note, heavy-on-tomato, version commonly served. I had the chicken valdostona, chicken cutlets with ham slice, Italian fontanella, wine sauce and mushrooms....More

There are about 15 tables outside; which I would recommend; overlooking the harbor. Food was very good and fairly priced for today's better restaurants. My wife got the osso bucco which she liked and I got the bolognese, which was very good.

I had dinner here with 4 adults. Several of us had the chicken parmigiana. It comes with salad and a side of pasta (choose from several). The portions were large - enough for a full meal left over. Warm bread was served as well. It...More

With so many good restaurants in and around St Pete Beach it's not usual that we leave the area but so glad we did. We both had an excellent veal dish and it was some of the best we've tried.
