A dozen of us went out to celebrate a couple of birthdays. The service was excellent, the food was superb and we even had entertainment. A little out of the was but well worth the drive.

We were vacationing nearby and had no idea where to eat. Based upon the reviews we chose this restaurant, and we are very happy we did. All the items were very reasonably priced, the service was friendly, and the quality of the food was excellent....More

You might not expect such a great Italian restaurant in a gas station strip mall, which appears to be only a pizza take-out place. In Ocklawaha...But walk inside, and you might then think you are in NYC or Boston, in your favorite place. Great Italian...More
