The staff and the decor really make you feel like you're in Italy, and then the food really takes you there! The daily specials when we were there were amazing. The pasta was so fresh and delicious, and dessert was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! The amaretto pound cake served with vanilla bean gelato and drizzled with sea... More

We live in St. Augustine and have not eaten here before. Friends from out of state recommended it. We dined there last night and will go back. The atmosphere is cozy, friendly and not rushed as an Italian meal should be. Soft, Sinatra style music in the background; you could actually have a conversation without straining your voice! Imagine that!... More

We visited this little Ma & Pa Italian restaurant this past Saturday and were pleasantly surprised. With Frank Sinatra playing in the background I had the Braisole with pasta and my husband had the shrimp parmagian, which he said was very tender and excellent. The Braisole was filled with spices, pine nuts and a hard boiled egg. SOOO good -... More

We were driving from Kings Bay Georgia where my son is stationed in the Navy. We just happened across this little restaurant and decided to stop. This place is a quaint little shop close to the beach. My wife had pasta with sauce and I had fettuccine alfredo. The waitress came right over, took our drink order and set about... More

The food was excellent. What a nice restaurant. Our waitress, Carrie, was a gem. I give her an A+. They were very busy that night. We did not have to wait long to eat. There were four of us. We each ordered a different item on the menu. What flavor. Each and every bite was amazing. We are from Pittsburgh,... More

The fettuccine alfredo was to die for, the chicken parmigiana was amazing, and so was the veal parmigiana. This was nothing like I've ever had before. Also, our waitress Carrie was the best waitress I've had in a while!

A bit difficult to find since the GPS led us there via a strip mall! Excellent Italian food. My husband loved his very tender veal piccata and I enjoyed the lasagna. Cozy little spot decorated like an Italian home. Reminded us of the original North End of Boston.
