On a friends recommendation we decided to stop by for a nice dinner. Did not know we needed reservations, however the staff was willing to sit us at their special table. May have been in the center but we were provided great service. We tried the Roman's dirty oil & garlic. We love Garlic so were very happy with the... More

Great sauces and meatballs but no home made pasta. I make pasta. It's so easy and wonderful tasting. I just don't understand why an Italian restaurant offering such delicious sauces wastes them on box pasta. Excellent dessert with home made limoncello. Love wine Wednesday for cheap bottles. Only thing beyond box pasta was last time I was sold on the... More

Every time we go to this quaint little restaurant we are always satisfied. The service is very personable, yet professional. It is a family run business and they truly care about you and your meal. They want you to have a fantastic and delicious and relaxing meal. The food is impeccable!

We did not know that they recommend reservations, but we were seated outside. The outdoor seating was comfortable. We were very impressed with ravioli dishes that were on special. The service was great! Nice family owned business.

We heard this place was good so gave it a try. Loved the meal, service, and the bread was perfection. Will come back.

Found this place looking for Italian. It's amazing!!! The best service and the food is phenomenal! Lasagna was the best I have ever had. Very authentic. My husband got the special (baked ravioli with vodka sauce and meatballs) and it was SUPER DELICIOUS! And enormous! The kids meal was huge! Definitely will be back!

My wife being an authentic Italian from Rome, tends to be very judgmental about Italian restaurants in the U.S. While the menu appears genuine, we found that the food was good, but not authentic. Having said that, this is one of the better Italian restaurants in Pensacola

This restuarant doesn't look like much from street and has limited seating indoors but the food is phenominal. I had home made Shrimp Alfredo with their original recipe and it was amazing. It wasnt like what I expected (heavy cream etc) the flavor and shrimp was sooo good. I even had the best Caesar salad I have ever had. I... More

Finally found some great Italian food close to the castle. Chicken Parm was outstanding and great service too.Being full blooded Italian I am a very harsh critic of eating Italian food in restaurants because I make the best. This was the bomb, totally outstanding experience!
