Quiet restaurant right on the main street. White tablecloths, excellent wine list, very good Italian food and great service! Had the shrimp gorgonzola, hubby had lobster ravioli, our two girls both had lasagna. Salads came with the meals. Prices reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed!

We were in Clearwater fr a wedding and just happened to find this place as it was close to our hotel. I would say they know what they are doing. The sea bass was excellent, the service was cordial and prompt and overall we had a very nice time. We have a lot of Italian restaurants in the Chicago are where e live and if this place was there we would be repeat customers.

The food was good but not the service. Our dinner took over 3 hours. We ordered our dinner when we arrived and waited about 15 min to get our first BRAVIA of water. The appetizers came shortly after we finnaly got water and the bread came with the appetizers. The salad took about 40 mins and we sat there with nothing to drink for at least 20 mins. The main course took about 2 hours to come after the salad. It was cold and again we sat there without drinks for about 40 mins. We couldn't wait to get out. We dare not order coffee because of the wait time and when it took more than 10 min for the check to come we paid with cash not to wait for our credit card to come back.

A bit more of an upmarket place to visit and I felt very out of place in Shorts, but the good news was they did not shoe us away as riffraff ...
Service was attentive ( But see above eh! )
The food was very nice , The Baked Brie was delicious .. the Raspberry drizzle just a lovely touch.
The children had Chicken Parmigiana which was very well cooked and tasty while we had the Shrimp Sobo and Shrimp Pizzaiola which we could not fault at all..... Good size portions and very very tasty.... the only let down for me was a bland Vegetable soup.
