Enjoy a sunset watching the boats crusing on the ICW while you done on great Italian fare. Friendly staff, great food .... and did I mention the location? Tucked away between Southport and Oak Island this is a local gem for Italian lovers.

This place has such good food and an excellent wine selection. The service is attentive and never rushed like some area places--nice to relax in a quite atmosphere and eat tasty food.

A wonderful, quiet Italian eatery. Every part of our dinner was excellent and the service from our waiter was outstanding. With no difficulty at all, Jaylon was able to go thru a long list of daily specials with descriptions of each. He was very polite and attentive to our needs throughout the evening. Our favorite Italian cafe is in Paris, but we now have one much closer to home that we will definitely revisit on our trips to the NC coast.

It was a Saturday evening and good friends and I decided to go away from Wilmington and are we glad we did. No reservations so when we arrived they told us a 20 minute wait. It was no more than 12 min. Needless to say it was crowded, but not so bad as to make it unbearable. Our Walter's name was Maraquise. He was top notch. I observed his mannerisms and how he handled the two nearby tables. I determined that he was trained well. I asked him if he was NAVY and did he learn in training to be a chef. He was totally amazed and I was right . Make sure when you go there, make sure you ask for him. You will not go wrong. The meals were 1st class all the way. I suggest that you request MAQUISE and your whole night will be as enjoyable as ours. If you go on a Sunday afternoon see if you can sit outside overlooking the ICWW. Can be very romantic. ENJOY!!
