Very good food but the menu could use more to choose from. Extras like potatoes, vege's. I was confused that you had to order 3 appetizers when the menu did not say that plus I was shocked when a 15% gratuity was added on the bill for two people. The servers need to be versed on service as far as water at the beginning when you sit down not in the middle. Again, need more extra selections and also lower your prices. For two people with one glass of wine a piece, dinner and dessert cost $200. Quite steep!

Was looking forward to trying this new restaurant, but left wondering if we would ever go back. Service was great but the food was lacking. I ordered the ribeye steak medium rare. Instead I got a very thin T-bone well done. No apologies or explanation. At least explain ahead of time if the kitchen has run out of ribeye. Surely the chef knows the difference between a ribeye and a T-bone!

The others at my table ordered roast lamb and a pasta dish. The roast lamb turned out to be three small and very dry pieces of lamb and a few cold, obviously re-heated potatoes. The pasta dish was okay but nothing special.

The atmosphere was strange. Very bare walls, almost like the renovations were incomplete. Most of the people there were sitting at the bar. Now we know why.

We were so disappointed because we wanted to support a new restaurant. Hopefully they can work things out.

this is aint italian... it is the usual bastardized version of italian improv performed by amateurs. low quality ingredients, lots of cream to cover up flaws and really no idea of what a true mediterranean dish tests like it.... on top of it... very pricey. stay away from it.

Opened August 2013, in the premises of defunct Indigo / Pot and Cake. Now, this is real Italian cooking, with homemade pasta, delicious appetizers, and always closely supervised by the involved hosts Paolo and his wife, and the former chef of Villaggio (which was best Italian at its time, until it closed 2011). A small, but exclusive wine list, by the glass.

I went to this new restaurant with a friend for lunch and was impressed by the friendly staff and great service we received, a rare occurrence in Nassau. The food itself was also delicious, we tried their homemade pasta with two different sauces and both were excellent. The portion sizes were perfect and both cream-based sauces were light. I would highly recommend the vodka salmon sauce :) I look forward to going there again soon and just decided to book it for my birthday dinner with 20 people +. YUM
