Restaurant is tiny and crowded. Food is just o.k., but at inflated prices that led to greater expectations. Thinking this was a special occasion place, my husband and I got a little more dressed up than usual (considering Florida's casual standards) only to find our waitress to be dressed in jeans.

From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a chilly attitude - not sure why. When they asked if we had a reservation and we said no we were told " then this table is for you"... despite there being 7-8 open tables we were given the worst by the door. Ok. We thought the prices... More

We live close by this restaurant and decided to try it. We like to support local business and were hoping this would be a good experience and we could spread the word. The experience was memorable but for all the wrong reasons. Food was mediocre at best. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan and there was no distinguishable eggplant in the... More

Visited 5 times but generally felt food is good but small portions and overpriced at lunch. Never ate dinner there. General consensus from locals is they go there once or twice but service is fair, food just good, and overpriced. Not too popular. Room is attractive, however.

Cafe Bologna in Osprey Florida, was recommended to us, for their unforgettable northern Italian cuisine. Well it was forgettable to say the least. Our bill for 2, with only 3 beers , nothing else was over $ 200.00! Charged $ 46 for antipasto alone! It was okay ...but nothing like others we have enjoyed like Beronia. At least with Beromia...
