A local saw our family dragging from the heat and kids arguing where to eat. He recommended NY Pizza which was at end of mall off Duval where we were standing. Hard to find but the pizza was fantastic and the salads large. The staff was very attentive and friendly.

We live part-time in the Key West area and we eat here 12+ times per year. It's wonderful to eat outside under the trees and admire the owner's collection of beautiful parrots that wander among the branches.

The atmosphere is fun and casual, and a quiet respite about 200 yards from busy Duval Street. The food is good, portions are (too) generous and beware of the addictive, butter-soaked garlic bread balls that will fill you up before your meal arrives! But the best thing about this restaurant is the staff - they work hard to provide exactly the right amount of great service without becoming intrusive. They are truly interested in ensuring that guests have an enjoyable meal.

In May, we brought two other couples for dinner and the attention and good-humour of Myles, our waiter, was the highlight of their visit.

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends of ours who live part time in Key West. We ended up liking this place so much that we ate here three nights in a row! The food is all excellent and made with fresh ingredients. The pasta is al dente and flavorful, the servers very friendly and attentive (thank you to Jeannette and our other 2 servers), and the ambiance was romantic (we sat outside under the trees and the lights as the sun was setting). I would highly recommend this place. It is great for couples or families and though it is close to Duval St. it seems miles away, definitely not a tourist trap.

Great place to go and eat some food in Key West. The place has outdoor seating and awesome parrots that hang out. The Garlic Knots were amazing and the waiter provided us a free Limoncello after the meal. They really took care of us here on our honeymoon and I would definitely go back another time.

The staff was very attentive, the food delicious and worth the price and the garden was a delightful place to have dinner with the wife and kids. Our server (I think Jeanette) was there when we needed her and not there when we didn't. A sign of a professional.

The Executive Chef, Ray made it a point to come out of the kitchen to see how we were enjoying our dinner. That was a very nice touch.
