Really, really good food, starting with the bread and olive oil dipping sauce. Shrimp & scallops were delicious, veal Sicialano also delicious as well as the chicken parm. I doubt there is anything that is not delicious.

Best Italian food in Central Florida! I often choose a special on the menu that brings me back to the delicious food I knew from childhood and living with my Sicilian grandparents.

I have not always been happy with restaurants that have sprung up in mini-strips along 17-92 but this is a wonderful exception. First the parking lot is not immediately evident. The entrance is South of the strip of mostly restaurants--the drive way north of the strip and just before the Walgreens goes into the Drug Store's parking lot--but there is was walk way between so if you miss the first one. The main entrance is here behind the restaurant and on the nice size (if a bit confusing due to it's one way entrance due to the bank's drive thru) parking lot. The restaurant has a long and rambling seating set up and the décor is lovely, while the food is generous in portions and enjoyable---and more than a few steps above your "usual" Italian restaurant. Oh and the staff is helpful, friendly and efficient. They do lunch and dinner so you can try them for lunch and/or dinner. For the vegetarian out there are bunches of salads, 2 types of Calazone, 1 flat bread and 4 different pastas without meat

Solid Italian food located in Maitland, Florida. The decor is great and it is perfect for customers that like seeing open kitchens. They have a huge open kitchen where it is easy to see most of the food prep. Also they have great tasting Gluten free options for pizza and bread.

Anniversary dinner date. Food was very good and plentyful, see the heading above. Even the salads covered the whole plates. Wife ordered the beef medallions over fettuccine. Undoubtedly, the two biggest "medallions" we have been offered at any restaurant, each approximately 3 inches in diameter and over a quarter inch thick of probably beef tenderloin and delicious. I had the veal parmesan also delicious over buchatini noodles, a pleasent surprise since this noodle is not very popular around here. Service was very good. And now the con: we do not accept loud music as a good compliment to delicious food nor does it contribute to the sentiment of a dinner date. We dined outside.
