Spending the weekend in Port Clinton with a friend looking for someplace to have dinner she suggested we stop here. She had heard of the place but had not been. Our server was Jamey and he explained the menu to us and suggested the Spiedini di Pesce. Iron seared scallops and shrimp with whole wheat Israeli vegetable cous-cous, basil pine nut pesto and balsamic reduction. It was WONDERFUL! Great bread is served at your table with olive oil & spices on a plate to dip in. So glad we decided to give it a try.

Service - Devon was our server. She was professional and not at all flustered by the amount of tables she had even though we could see she was very busy.

Food - My husband had the osso boco and he loved it! I had the Tuesday night special. For one price a server will come around every few minutes and give you a sample of a different pasta that the chef has just come up with. That was alot of fun and delicious.

Atmosphere - We sat on the patio. What a beautiful night.

We will come back when we visit Port Clinton and recommend this place to our friends!

Thanks for a wonderful evening!

We enjoyed the food very much, and everyone kept raving about their dessert chef and how everything was made fresh on premises. The entrees were wonderful, but none of us really were wowed by the desserts. I had the cobbler, which was a special, and it was dry, even with their home made gelato on top of it. My husband's dessert was also dry, and desserts were $7-$8 each. Enjoy your meal, but skip dessert!

Everything from the pasta dishes, which are rich and to die for, to the fish, perfectly flaky and not overcooked, was amazing. Can't wait to return to this fantastic Italian restaurant. We sat on the deck and enjoyed being outside.
Our waitress was a little distracted, so even with service that was not top notch, we were wowed by the tasty food selections and great cocktails.
