Food never fails. Yummy Italian in a fun environment. Have eaten at all their locations over the last 15 years and consistent everywhere. Meatball Salad and shrimp Scampi toast are my favorites! Large portions so enough to share! Good wine list. Always more fun when Steve is around!

Service and food are fantastic. From the moment we walked in the Hostess and waitstaff were outstanding. Teddy P was our waiter and did a phenomenal job of making us feel good about being there. If you are looking for extremely tasty recipes and good portions... This is your spot! I have been to this restaurant twice and both times... More

When Steve is in the kitchen on Oakland Park you would be hard pressed to find better Italian American food anywhere( and I have been to Rao's in NYC) When Steve is not there however it's not the same. It's still really good but Steve is the secret ingredient. Awesome meatball. Awesome steak sandwich. Pasta is great. Don't 'break balls'... More

We had early reservations 5:15. Unfortunately we hit a detour then got lost. We arrived at 5:45. We were told that reservations are only held for 15 minutes. Completely fair in my opinion. We explained getting lost and the manager told us he would let us sit but we had an hour. He was trying to help us out and... More

Cute page boy caps on servers - very northeast, old school city look to all the servers. Makes sense given owner! Now the food I didn't see a menu - family style this visit... More

Straight to the point: Food- just ok, NOT great. Service- HORRIBLE! You get what you pay for doesn't hold true at this place. Over priced for the quality. I would NOT go back for a free meal! We visited the location at the Paris Las Vegas,and its way better. Maybe because it's corporate now.

The food here is incomparable & consistently AMAZING. There is no comparison to any other Italian restaurant in Florida. The quality of the products they speaks volumes when you take your first bite. You have to like a LOUD party like atmosphere when eating here. There is NO other place like it.

We stopped in on a Friend's recommendation and we weren't disappointed, the fresh mozzarella/tomato parfait app was light and delicious, my pasta ala vodka was on point, the Eliche pasta was cooked perfectly al dente, wine list is a little pricy but a good selection, service was great, no salt and pepper shakers on the table, the way it should...

Great venue with a great buzzy ambiance on our Sunday night visit (although I hear it can very loud Thursday through Saturdays). We sat at the bar. The cocktails were excellent, the service was excellent and the food was excellent.
