    This is such a gem. I was there 12 years ago and knew if I ever got back to Orlando I had to go back. This restaurant is so very special and didn’t disappoint 12 years later. Ambiance is great, service in wonderful and the food is the best Italian I have ever had. I can’t wait to go back.

    Honestly the best Italian food I’ve ever had. Everything tastes fresh and like true care went into it. They have gluten free pasta and bread, and are very careful about allergies. The service is also unlike anything you experience these days, which a team of servers dedicated to you during your time there. My husband and I had to visit twice before heading back home after a week away in Orlando.

    Service was not good. Server forgot to take one person’s order and then we had to flag him down to get that done. Drink order was wrong and had to ask several times to get it fixed. Ordered two bottles of wine (1 red and 1 white) and had to ask for the second bottle when it had not appeared by the time salads were done. Table was in the bar and just felt forgotten - and was very noisy.

    As always, the food was outstanding. The service was also top notch. Unfortunately, our reservation for 2 was at 8pm and we weren’t seated at our table until well after 9pm. The manager offered a glass of wine on the house as a concession but that doesn’t solve for a delay of this significance for a meal at this price point. We would’ve gladly eaten at the bar but they were not willing to serve food at the bar. We will have to think twice before planning another business meeting at this venue.
