During recent visits in 2014 and 2015, , we dined here several times each trip. Superb food and a great view are the norm. The Chef runs a lovely establishment , and we really enjoy the cuisine. Last time I told Chef that I adore Carbonara , and he said he would make it for me in a few days. He did and it was wonderful. Service is very attentative . Since we spent a great deal of time in Italy,we really appreciated the authentic food. We will return this July. Can't wait!

We really enjoyed this Italian restaurant while we looked out onto the bay from our outside deck seating. We had some great seafood pasta specials but the highlight was the gnocchi Regina which was a sauce that we never had before. We also had two delightful desserts, a chocolate strawberry cake and the La DolceVita special. All recommended.

This once was one of our favorite harbor view restaurants with great food and nice sunsets. Tonight's visit was a disaster. They were out of most of the wines we wanted, out of Conch fritters, and the lemon drop Martini was disgusting. Asked the barmaid what she put in the drink and she said something I do know what. No a great start and it got worse. Two of us ordered steaks - of course they were out of the Porterhouse we wanted so they settled for a Filet and a Rib Eye both ordered Medium Well which both arrived RAW. The special was Fettuccini with Lobster and Shrimp which was an equal disaster with 2 little pieces of lobster and four small shrimp. Seriously at $32.95? We spoke with the lady manager and said we were leaving without eating anything but would pay for the Fettuccini as we ate some of it. She apologized and said the kitchen staff was being changed next week and did not charge us anything at all. She seemed sincere and we accepted her apologies and went to Casanova's just down he road for dinner.
We love the view and will probably return but they need to fix what is broken. Apparently the locals know as it was still empty as we drove by returning from Casanova's...

We have eaten all over the world. The pasta here was the lightest and most delicious we have had. Friends had recommended this place to us and told us that the ambience was ok but that the food was fabulous. We had breathtaking weather and a beautiful sunset on the veranda. A bottle of Italian wine and the evening could not have been better. Go there and ask for the owner. You will enjoy the experience!
