We have eaten at this place a few times while vacationing in this part of Florida. This is a place that is Italian through and through........from the excellent food, and modest decor, to the live music on the terrance. Prices are fair and there is a range of food options. Staff are quite pleasant too.

Tried based on excellent Trip Advisor reviews for pizza. My wife ordered plain cheese pizza. I ordered the Torretta pizza. I had a glass of wine. It was a generous portion. My pizza was soggy even though I ordered it well done. We both thought the flavor was rather bland. Service was OK and prices reasonable.

On entering this restaurant there is a sign stating all meals are freshly made. What it implies is that there will be wait for the main dish, well it's worth the wait. You can taste the the difference it's not just heated up or previously frozen. Wait service informative and very efficient. Next trip into the area will include this... More

Order from here at least once a week. Pizza is true NY style thin crust. Pasta dishes are very good, great portion sizes. Never had a bad meal.

Great Food! I have been going here for years, Marta the owner is awesome. Service is sometimes slow when she isn't there but the food makes up for the small wait

Go for giant portions, reliable quality and get the garlic rolls (they come with the meal but you can choose plain too). Fresh marinara, lots of options, we enjoyed two eggplant dishes, scampi with a welcome abundance of garlic and pizza. All were happy, especially when the leftovers gave us a second meal (traveling, so appreciate this). The booths are... More

Last night we went to the Torretta to eat. It was about 9:30pm my husband first when inside while we waited in the car and asked the manager if they were still open and if they wanted a table of four? The manager said no problem come in and eat. There was like 6 tables with guests when we arrived.... More
