“Always Fantastic!!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We have been here several times before. The bread is to die for and so is the garlic bread. We brought our daughter and her family. Two of us had black grouper with crab meat on top. Delicious!!!! And they have a good menu for children. My only complaint was that our server tried to upsell us on the wine we chose. I know it is to her advantage, but if the wine we chose is so bad, why is it on the menu. And actually it was very good!!! We will go back again when we are in Orlando!

“Great for takeout too!”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We got takeout from this little gem tucked away in a strip mall on Westwood off of International drive after a long day at the parks. The food was awesome - very authentic hand crafted pastas and sauces. My wife had classic spaghetti and meatballs, me their daily special gnocchi in a tomato cream sauce. Their housemade Italian bread was included. Very nicely appointed restaurant and when picking up the food all the meals looked delicious - I would definitely go back to eat in restaurant next time I'm in Orlando.

“Excellent, excellent and excellent”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

This place completely deserves the ratings it has on Zagat. From the hostess to the waitress to food everything was SPOT ON !!
Other then the interiors of the place which are looking a little outdated everything else was exceptional. In fact the interiors are also quite acceptable as they make the place look like a very old restaurant somewhere in Italy.
The staff was very knowledgeable about the food, the pastas were fresh and the meats were cooked to perfection. It was a pleasant surprise to find the Italian beverages and the desserts were a perfect finish to a delightful evening.
Will definitely be back whenever I am in Orlando next.

“Excellent food and excellent service”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

Tried this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We all enjoyed the dishes we had. The waitress was very attentive and service was quick. I would highly recommend this place if you're looking for Italian near Sea World. Don't let the strip mall atmosphere turn you away.
