Since we were staying close by, we ate at this location several times during our time in Southport. The food is wonderfully prepared, and the menu is varied. You can carry out, eat casually, or have a full dining experience at the same location. Our...More

Very good entrees with many offered as "Cravings" or Tapas. Under $10 for more food than one should eat. LOL. I am filled when I leave. I eat here often and never disappointed.

Had pasta carbonara. Maybe it would have been better in house, but I ordered to go. The flavor was great, the pancetta was even better, but the sauce was like soup.More

I'm very sorry but you are indeed correct. Carbonara is best when consumed immediately after serving so in order to prevent it from firming up on takeout orders we're required to add extra cream. In the past we would try to warn our guests -...More

My friend who met us assured us the evening vibe was pleasant, but the lunchtime atmosphere was cold and more like fast food (except it was slow) than a sit-down restaurant. We had to line up to place our orders, then sat down and waited...More

I’m sorry you had a bad experience. We didn’t properly explain our unique arrangement. I’m not sure what happened in your particular instance but guests are served meals with silverware and china. Perhaps we were somehow under the impression that you were taking the food...More

My husband and our daughters went out for Bella Cucina pizza while they were on spring break. They were accommodated children and adults and the pizza was great. The toppings were fresh and the pizza didn't fall apart like some other places.
