We live on the west coast, but every time we come to Lakeland we eat at this gem. Old NY ITALIAN. Sauces are the best.

This place is great! Best cannoli in Central Florida! Pizza was really good, a lot of toppings and came out fast! We also ordered fettuccini Alfredo and my kids thought it was the best they had ever had. I had chicken parm... it was a little overdone. Overall though it was definitely a great dinner for all of us!

I only review according to my experience. First off the atmosphere is Italian. Service was quick and the waitress knowledgeable and Johnny on the spot. Lunch specials are great for the price and quality. Now there is only one issue I have and I have eaten there before. For me there is way too much sauce with the dishes. I... More

Real Italy for a really good price. Dark inside, plenty of seating but I would still call ahead on weekends or Friday nights. It can get packed. Good wine options. A little tight with young children but doable in a pinch.

Had dinner with my family while visiting from TN, and totally enjoyed all that was offered. Atmosphere was authentic, service was spot on, and the quality of the food was excellent. Portions were huge and had enough to share and even take some home. Loved the open kitchen concept as well.

This place gives you Italian food in the way you would expect to see it in New York or New Jersey. They serve the pizza on an elevated tray that sits in the middle of the table. Pizza was fantastic, but beware - the "personal" pizza can easily serve two. We chose the next size up and my sister and... More

We had eaten at another one of these restaurants and it was excellent so we thought we would try this one. Lots of free parking in the lot. The restaurant was not overly busy so service was fairly quick. The atmosphere was quaint. Waitress was nice but too chatty you know the life story type. We asked if the mushrooms... More

We enjoyed a dinner of seafood ravioli with brandy cream sauce and gilled sole with a tomato/herb melange on top, vegetables and mashed potatoes both of which were superb. All wines by the glass were $6 the night we were there. We mentioned to our waitress that it was our first visit and the chef sent complimentary bruschetta to our... More
