This is good quality comfort food. Not 5-star Italian. Good prices. Very friendly service. Nice open-air atmosphere. What else do you need? We enjoyed our experience here.

Located in the Florida Mall, I still loved the set-up, wait staff, and the food. Started off with a nice cappuccino and my wife had a coconut - lemonade drink that was unexpectedly awesome. She had a vegetarian sandwich and I had the salmon Caesar salad. Both were great choices.

This restaurant charged us double for the carbonara my husband ordered. He ate very little of it, as the pasta was sticky and cold, and the sauce didn't come close to resembling any carbonara we'd previously had. We did not complain about the food, but nicely explained that we were charged double for one meal and showed them the price... More

I really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere. The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. Will dine there again on the next trip.

The food and atmosphere around the restaurant is nice - we has good pizzas as well even though they were a bit small - the desserts though were really good and at a fair prize so we left full and happy :)

This a typical taste of Italian food, we went on a Sunday night and was half occupied, the place is noisy cause there is a multi-cinema near by. The food was good, the service helpful, but nothing out of this world. We ask for risotto marinera and a Salmon with pasta. If you area local no problem, go for it;... More

The food is always excellent although as a non Paisa I do not need everything I put in my mouth to be covered in cheese! I solved the problem by asking for the cheese and sauce for the caesar's salad to be "aparte" / served separately so I can add the amount I want. Problem solved. Pasta siciliano is my... More
