I am confused by your review since we offer many items that are gluten free on our menu. Also, in Florida palmetto bugs are common and do get in from outside occasionally and we have pest control service to help with this problem that nature...More

We try to get our "Mama's Fix" out of season, and this little Italian gem gets very busy in the winter months. Still, somehow they manage to pull off a great Sicilian menu with over sized portions. Because of it size, it can feel crowded,...More

We ate here a couple of times. The food is very tasty and the portions are crazy big. The stromboli was huge. Very tasty and recommended.

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your meal. We do our best to please as many patrons as we can but can not please everyone. My husband was from Sciacca, Sicily and our recipes reflect that region. Thank you.
