“Perfect Night...”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Great food, perfect service, pleasant environment, it doesn't get any better in northeast Fort Lauderdale. As a dessert fan, I have to mention that both the apple pie with cinnamon ice cream and the tiramisu were outstanding.

This restaurant is located in a strip mall, so the attractive outside seating area was out of the question for me. Besides, it was too hot out this time of year. Inside it was pleasantly air conditioned. There was a neat Mediterranean theme created by faux columns and arches in the dining area. Fashionable floor tiles. White tablecloths. Tables set up with glassware, silverware, and cloth napkins. Soft background music from Pandora. A pleasant dining atmosphere.

I ordered a dish of pasta stuffed with pears. This lunchtime entrée came with bread and soup. The bread, in a basket, was brought to my table first. It was warm with a crunchy crust around a soft interior, just the way I like it.

My waiter was not much on personality, but he was efficient and accommodating.

Then came the pasta fagioli soup -- or what was called soup. It was quite favorful but very, very watery, more like a broth than a soup. I saw only a single (white) bean. It looked so lonely swimming around in a sea of broth all by itself. And the soup own half filled the bowl, as though someone was interrupted when ladling the soup into the bowl and never get back to finish the task.

The pasta dish had good eye appeal, but there wasn't much of it, more like an appetizer than an entrée. But it was simply delicious.

My rating is actually a 3 1/2.

“A great restaurant”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

The specials are a little pricey but exceptionally good. The grilled calamari steak over greens with olive oil and lemon was an excellent appetizer. The frutti di mare was amazing - served over linguine with clams, salmon and a huge lobster tail. The snapper livornese was also excellent - even the side of pasta was delicious. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu and wines. First class tiramisu for dessert. There are many more moderately priced items on the regular menu which, based on our dinners, we imagine are also of the highest quality. A great restaurant!!

“Very good food in a relaxing ambiance”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The dress code for the restaurant was casual to dressy. I wore khaki dress pants with a polo shirt, while my boyfriend wore jeans and a polo shirt. We felt comfortable with our clothing choice. The ambiance of the restaurant was warm, inviting and relaxing; the waiter was friendly, knowledgeable and down-to-earth; the food was delicious.

The table comes with a complimentary serving of bruschetta. We split the salad to create two side salads in addition to our entrées. We ordered the citrus-grilled shrimp and a special which was pasta with shrimp. The citrus shrimp consisted of four very large shrimp (which was filling). The daily special had the shrimp cut up, so it is difficult to say how many there were, but it was delicious and filling. The apple fold dessert was also palate-pleasing.

There is outdoor seating, but the restaurant is located in a strip mall, so not very "scenic" or romantic. The restaurant would be very appropriate for a romantic dinner, a celebratory dinner with family or even a business dinner.

“Best Italian in Fort Lauderdale- Hands Down!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Walking into this place ( which is in an unassuming strip mall) you are instantly treated like family. The host and owner is this lovely ma who takes you to a table and says something to the effect that his niece or cousin will be taking good care of you. It doesn't feel like an act or forced. It's the true Italian spirit. It only gets better! The service is impeccable. Forget the menu as you will here a ration of specials and I'd suggest getting one f the specials. Each sounding like a treat! Had a risotto starter with wild mushrooms, I almost cried it was so good. Next Osso Buco that was insane. Split a tiramisu so fresh you felt like they were making this one at a time. Only negative get more comfy chairs as we were there for a while ( Not because of slow service but because we ordered a lot. With a bottle of wine the total for 2 was about $185.00 but it was a superb evening! Truly, this is the best Italian in Fort Lauderdale!
