We tried Effina's their opening week and had a very enjoyable meal. Unfortunately, every meal that followed was less spectacular, until our final visit was just awful. Having no other restaurant like it in the area, it was really sad to see it slip. Last night, out of complete desperation, we decided to try it again. All I can say is WOW! Two separate dishes with steak, and both were flavorful and cut with your fork tender. Recently gave up on one of Birmingham's James Beard Award winning joints after spending a small fortune, but walked out of Effina's delighted and stuffed for the price of movie night. Thank you for figuring it out.

We have visited Effina's Tuscan Grill numerous times and the food is always outstanding! Especially the catch of the day fish. They bring it in from the Gulf and it is always fresh and deliciously prepared. Don't miss this restaurant, if you are in Jacksonville, AL.

Always excellent food and friendly service! Voo Doo pasta is one of our favorites plus daily fresh fish dishes. Pizza and calzones are great!

This was a very good place for a business lunch while in Jacksonville. Food was excellent and portions large. Only two minor problems, no San Pellegrino sparkling water, and no expresso.
