We had a great time celebrating my birthday there! It was our first time there even though we live about 25 minutes away! Shame we've missed it for so long! Staff was great, and awesome ambiance and deliciously fresh! In the mood for great Italian cuisine, this is a must try if you've never been there. If your looking for a quiet place, this isn't it! Very lively place with the sounds of cooking and customers enjoying themselves. Definitely gonna be one of our top spots to eat going forward!

After arriving from Houston, we chose this place for a business dinner with colleagues. Our dining experience was good, however, immediately after finishing our food, we were promptly escorted away from the table in order for them to place other guests. We were interrupted mid sentence and ushered out. The way we were treated was embarrassing to say the least. The business discussion quickly came to an end and I would not recommend this place as a result of what we experienced.

Started with a bottle of wine at the bar and male bartender was excellent he suggested meatball special.

The Server Greg was extremely professional and knew the menu inside and out. He suggested multiple great options

Everyone in my party had a great time.

Food and experience was amazing but service not so much. When dining at a restaurant like that and the money you are paying you want your waiter to be very knowledgeable on the food and wine recommendations. Ours was not. It was a real struggle and that was not our expectation at all of a place so highly recommended.

We’ve been to several of Steve’s restaurants - incl the original and they NEVER disappoint. It was a rare occasion that we were in FLA for NYE - and knew whatever he had planned would be over the top. Yet again, we left more than impressed by the food - from the antipasti to the stuffed clam - the best meatball to the pasta and lobster. Top this all off w/ the best cake in the world by his wife and owner of Lilly Cakes. This all made it a NYE to remember!

Went for New Year’s Eve
Was a fixed menu
I have been many times to This location
Food has always been fantastic
This time felt very rushed and food was just ok
Not worth the 1500 price tag for 5 people .
Will go back when it is not a holiday and hopefully won’t be as rushed
