They jammed our group into a smaller area than was needed......the roasted garlic was skimpy and they tried to serve 8 ppl what should've been for 4 ppl. They serve the parmigiana dishes over top of the pasta, NOT GOOD, so when you cut up...More

This is beyond great! So many places to sit inside and out in a garden with fire, light-strung palm trees and additional dining on their terrace area. Italian at its best! Live music, too!

We invite you to enjoy an authentic taste of the Tuscan countryside. Walk down a vine covered arbor, surrounded by a walled Olde World fireplace and enter a garden lush with lit trees and flowering greenery. The garlic offers one of the most beautiful settings for a delightful and memorable dining experience. We offer great food, live music, fine wine, Italian beer, and perfect martinis. Come experience the garlic for yourself.
