We have been vacationing in Sanibel for 15 years and have eaten here every time. The last few times have been disappointing. We had stuffed mushrooms which were okay. I will say the crab bisque we had was very good. I had chicken marsala and...More

We were fortunate enough to find this restaurant on our first night there. Their Chicken Siciliano pizza was incredible. The employees were all so friendly.
