Salads are a treat, with lots of great toppings offered; pizza is above-average, drinks good. Prices seem a bit high (one pizza, one appetizer, 3 drinks = $100+). A good spot for occasions, but not the best value around.

The dinners are always excellent. And we particularly love to go and listen to live music when Marty Liquori's band is playing.

You'll not find a better steak In Gainesville nor a better atmosphere. The art on the walls make for a very interesting visit.

No dress code but since it is a nice place no flip flops. They do take reservations and it is a good idea especially on the weekends or when something is going on with the Gators football team.

They have a very well stocked full bar and a nice selection of wine. Specify what you want and you will get it. The servers are generally well versed on the wines.
