“Nice find!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

We found this little place while looking for Italian that had more options than seafood. The bread and pesto dipping oil were delicious, as well as the rest of the meal. Very nice, white table cloth ambiance. Huge selection of wines. We would go back!

“Delicioso! Superb!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

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!

“If this was in our home town we would go regularly”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

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.

“Long long dinner”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

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.
