We ate here twice during our stay in February. The staff is very friendly, service is quick and the food was great, whether it was pizza or their fresh pasta. I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone to try at least once.

Hands down, my fav. The Mussels Diablo was delicious, w/ crusty bread for dipping. The milder version is wonderful too. The filet was perfection. Fish always wonderful. The Lobster Ravioli was yummy and delicate - only wish there was more of it. The owner and staff are lovely and will do everything they can to make sure you are happy.... More

Very good Italian fare at this ristorante and pizzeria. The pastas are delicious- tagliatelle bolognese was as good as anything in the US. Salads and appetizers are very good- tuna tartare was served with avocado and sprouts and Was enough for a meal. The bruschetta was also quite large and should be shared. We also had the exotic salad which... More

Good pizza at a reasonable price. The dough tastes like s typical Italian pizza and is thin an crunchy. Also a good selection of pasta. Service was nice and friendly although a little slow - but who cares when you are on vacation? Patio and restaurant are neat and clean.

Went there for dinner with a group of friends, had a good quality pizza and everyone else's food looked tasty. Amazing hazelnut ice cream. Really lovely staff and atmosphere as well as being reasonably priced.
