This is a great Italian restaurant in terms of food, but the service and attitude of the waiter was terrible. There were six of us and we love to go out to eat. Price is never a problem when it is worth it. When we got there, we loved the table in the front window, but it took 20 minutes... More

Excellent meal, all very fresh, cooked to order, cooking area visible. Seated quickly but should have reservations on weekend. Only wine (excellent choices) and beer, no mixed drinks. Any special requests with food choices or preparation honored. Presentation was very appealing.

Farfalle is wonderful! We enjoyed the Calamari Fritti appetizer which was tender and the Pomodoro sauce was absolutely delicious. It may be one of the best I've had with a nice combination of garlic and basil spices. The Spiedini Alla Romana was good but the anchovy sauce was bland so wouldn't get that again. Entrees were delicious including the Salmon... More

Dinner with wife, daughter, and grandchildren, ages 14 and 9. A last minute choice but a good one. Professional service, nicely decorated. Upscale for this area but with it. No hard spirits but large wine list. Appetizers all good. Caprese salad, mussels, risotto nicely prepared and tasty. Pasta and meat dishes delicious. Too full for desserts. Pricier then local restaurants/pizzarias... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Naples, Estero, Bonita Springs. Wine only. Nice ambulance. Homemade pasta. Superior lollipop lamb chops. Great bread. Awesome homemade dessert.

Wine only, very crowded seating, felt rushed. Won't return, just something seemed off. Menu in restaurant different than website menu, disappointing.

This is the second time we've been here for lunch in the last month. Food is delish and service was spot on.. Great job, Jeff. Best bruschetta ever. Our chicken dishes were flavorful and the scalloped potatoes are always great. Nice bottle of wine. It is a lovely restaurant. Chef/owner Michael is passionate about what he does and it shows....

We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We all really enjoyed our meals. We were thankful that we had a drink before we left though because we were surprised to find out they don't serve liquor (i.e. martini's etc.) or couldn't even provide me with a cranberry & soda. Seemed like it was wine or pop. Like that I... More

Faux Italian by Faux Italian owners! Sorry, I wish I could be more positive but if anyone thinks this is what Italian food tastes like then they don't know Italian. The place is decorated very well and the hostesses & servers were very professional but not even close to Italian food.

My husband and I ate at this restaurant tonight. The atmosphere was very nice. Our server was nice but always seemed in a rush and wasn't very friendly. We waited for our meal for about 30 minute. The food was very hot when served to us. The problem came when we took our first bite. My chicken francese was very... More
