The food is outstanding and the food is very tasty. The price is pretty steep though and the potion is fairly small. Overall I love this pace though. Will return when I want to eat a smaller great tasting meal that is fairly expensive.

I live in the area and eat here often. They go out of their way to make me happy. They have many excellent choices. The wine selection is also good.

Went with a friend, loved it! Homey, great food. I had grouper francesco, my friend had linguini with red clams. Seafood was fresh and plentiful, sauces were absolutely delicious. Our server was friendly with a fun personality. Can't wait to go back!

We popped into this place before a show at the Florida Theatre. It was set up like a buffet/salad bar. Once we decided what we wanted the gentlemen behind the serving trays scooped our food out and proceeded to heat it up in the microwave....More
