I have been here many times and Davide never disappoints! The antipasto appetizer was amazing. Our main dishes were prepared to perfection. We had chicken and veal Milanese. Both made with REAL veal and chicken. One person had a special Flounder Livornese. The sauce was delicious. For the money this is the best Italian on the island. You won't be disappointed.

They have the absolute best Caesar salad in the world. They also have wonderful pizza. The owner has specials every single day out of an obvious Italian kitchen. Our favorite place in Marco Island.

The title says it all really. The great Davides do my favorite pizza on Marco - beautifully cooked, great size. YUM! They also deliver too which is nice and are reasonably priced.

No complaints here!

Small cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. Veal dishes are the specialty, but the pizza is the cheesiest for all you cheese lovers. Fresh ingredients and Davide's mom's home recipes. Yum!! Cozy atmosphere, great food and service. Must try when in Marco Island,FL.

Had the opportunity to engage with the owner who really takes great pride in his restaurant. He stated that he buys his flour, canned tomatoes and mozzarella direct from a special contact in Italy. The restaurant is not large and is located in a strip mall. Considering this is an Italian restaurant I suggest they lose the neon Bud Light sign in the front window which leads to diminished curb appeal when you drive up to park.

We started with an order of cold antipasto that came with an assortment of bacon, prosciutto, olives, salami, boiled ham, eggplant, capicola, provolone, zucchini, mozzarella and a topping of balsamic glaze. Overall a great selection.

Although we did not order the pizza or the Stromboli we saw them ready for another table and they looked wonderful. Note the pizza was 18" in diameter which is a real man’s pizza size.

For other appetizers we tried the meatballs which were small and average at best. At $7 for two it was a rip off and the sauce was not very good. The olive paste was great but salty because anchovies in it. The house salad was light on greens, had cucumber slices, onion and tomato slices.

For dinner we had the Braciola (pork) which was … very tender. It comes in a Marsala mushroom sauce but my cousin swapped it out for bolognaise sauce which was very good. The eggplant was very tender but was laced with way too much oregano which ruined the dish. The veal Parmesan was thicker than most which was fine because it was very tender and juicy. The breading was light but it could have used more sauce. The linguine was cooked al dente but they use the same sauce as on the meatballs which was not great. Another blunder that spoiled a potentially great dish. The sausage rigatoni special had huge pasta which did not work with the dish and a lot of grease.
