This little slice of Italy is right in downtown Coco. Nestled in the corner of a small plaza, it was the best slice of authentic Italian cuisine. Starting with the complimentary antipasti bar, loaded with awesome goodies preludes the awesome meal of pasta and seafood. Fresh, great outstanding service, authentic chef/owner makes everyone feel right at home. Small restaurant, delivering in a big way. Must try.

We spent a relaxing afternoon lingering over our delicious meal. The service was impeccable and the food matched it. Real Italian, not the pizzeria type. Try the semifreddo for a refreshing dessert.

This restaurant it tucked away from the busy streets. You can sit inside or outside. We sat inside and were very pleased with this small cozy restaurant. The food was excellent. I was really impressed with their"salad" bar. It was really a fantastic assortment of chilled vegetables. Service was excellent and the real shocker was, all our food came out piping hot!!! This doesn't happen very ofter. Definetely worth a visit or two and not over priced.

If you’re looking for a quiet spot away from the noisy restaurants this is your place. Great dishes, good house wine , and good service. It’s in a strip right beside Coconutz. Loved the free veggie bar included with all plates.
