I agree with the review that said staff is snobby and unhelpful. Decor is grand and the outside view is amazing! The portions are small, selection limited and prices high. I had heard you only visit for drinks and ambience. Not why I select a restaurant so we won't be back. Other delicious options with friendly service and fabulous quality... More

An excellent restaurant for dinner. This s likely the best fine dining on the island. The Italian cuisine is authentic, freshly prepared and bordering on ethereal, which is good because with wine your check will in the same sphere! Never mind, we ate there three times and each was like a special occasion. Even the grandkids loved their choices. The... More

It was actually shocking how incredibly bad our lunch date was. My wife's greek salad was unrecognizable as a greek salad with a piece of cardboard chicken breast at the tune of $ 14 + $ 6 for the chicken, the chowder soup was pure cream with salt without any fish. My pizza was soggy & bathing in grease. The... More

The restaurant itself is an elegant Italian palace adorned with classic art and marble statues. The sunset is magnificent. the food is absolutely delicious, however the portions are not filling, especially for the price they charge. The wine list is extensive but again pricey. The staff is very distant, snooty, and not very pleasant, to me they feel they are... More

We have been coming here for fine dining for years and it is one of our favorites! Each course gets better! I must rave about the staff, as well, because they can make or break any experience! I always feel that the soup is out of this world and so is the rich risotto! We had the special fish last... More

Excellent restaurant for fine dinning. Great atmosphere. I prefer to sit on terrace and view the ocean. Excellent service. Great Chef's specials. Recommend men wear at least a jacket or suit in the evening. So if you are in Marco island make sure to at least reserve one evening here.

This gourmet Italian restaurant was recommended to us BY EVERYONE. The architecture is spectacular - you feel very much like you're visiting a historical Italian palace. Everything here is top drawer from initial seating to service, food and libations. Everything is fresh and made on site. The pasta is to die for along with the chef-created sauces. All of the...

Sometimes you have to sacrifice the quality of the food when you have a place with an incredible view --not here! The food is always fantastic (we eat here every time we stay in Naples) and the sunset over the ocean is stunning. This year, we sat outside under the awning during a thunderstorm-no sunset but a wicked lightning show!... More
