We regularly drive up from Sarasota because this lovely little restaurant serves such high-quality Italian food. The antipasto alone is worth the drive. The folks who run it are sincere and kind. Their pizza is a lovely, crisp, bubbly delight :-) Looking forward to returning.

This place is unique and delicious. I have tried about everything here and it is all really good. I must say the tiramisu is the best I have ever had. Don't forget to bring your own wine!

Went to Arte Caffe, Italian kitchen, low profile but superb cooking and ingredients. This is a must visit for people who love the real thing. Don't forget BYOB ( Bring Your Own Booze 😄) so you just bring your favourite wines with you. Ciao Adriaan
