“(Very) Plain Italian”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

Its a fairly typical simple Italian restaurant. Food is not fantastic, but its not bad either. Service is friendly and pleasant. Its not a place to go to celebrate, but its ok if you like Italian style food.

When we were there they had an entertainer who couldn´t sing and couldn´t play the guitar. He gave plenty of proof of both. According to the waiter it was a one off performance. I hope he was right.

“It's worth the stroll to this local favorite”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

The service was deferential and friendly. The caprese salad impeccably fresh, calamari appetizer delectable, and black squid pasta delicious though the marinara sauce was a bit too spicy to truly enjoy the taste of the pasta. No complaints, though. I'd return.

“great food at great prices”

This spot is always a hit. From pizza to classic fish and veal dishes. It always a place we visit while in SoBe. Never disappointed.

“Amazing food + fabulous ambience = Epic dining experience!”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

How do you improve perfection? The staff treats you like you a part of their family. The food is fresh and you can tell the owner is passionate about the experience. Great for kids too! Must have... The only disappointment was that the men’s bathroom was dirty. Shame as the ambiance of the restaurant was so beautiful…
