The food was great. The bread and oil was fantastic. Everyone in our group (Italians from NY and NJ) loved it.

What a beautiful little restaurant that truly surprised us. It was packed, which is always a good sign. The service was stellar despite the busyness and items came out quickly. Our server Tibor had great suggestions and was so amicable! The manager checked in on...us throughout the meal which showed how much he cared about the patrons. Onto the food. Everything we ate was delicious! The brick oven baked pizzas were perfect. All of the pasta dishes we ordered were quite tasty. The filled garlic rolls were a great appetizer. You can’t go wrong with any of the choices.More

Best Italian around 30A. So much better than eating at the HUB or Seaside. Highly recommend. It is definitely worth a little drive. 👍🏼👍🏼

Wonderful Italian dinner. We were seated immediately upon arrival at our reservation time. The food came out very fast. Everything was super tasty and very fresh. Waiter was very attentive even though he seemed quite busy. I will definitely eat here again.

The food and wine was delicious and it feels like a legitimate Italian locale. I would definitely go back if I'm ever in Destin again.

The service was good, the environment was fine, however the food was very much subpar. We started out with a caesar salad, though salad dressing had little to no flavor. It was not good. For dinner, we ordered a kids white and a kids red...sauce with meatball pasta, a capellini al pomodoro and an ortolana pizza. The kids white and red sauce pastas were fine, however the center of the meatball was so overcooked it was entirely crunchy. The capellini pasta had almost no flavor, making it quite underwhelming. The pizza with "fire roasted vegetables" was what I would describe as floppy and very much cooked poorly. The crust was doughy, the bottom undercooked (hence the "floppy comment") and the veggies were not at all what I would expect from fire roasted. They were soggy and mostly in the middle, leaving the outer part of the pizza just cheese. For this price, we expected a much better meal. The rating would have been lower if the service was not so good.More

We were a big party and they had our table ready when we arrived. I had the special fish dish which was awesome. The food came out fast and was very hot and delicious. Everyone was very happy with the meal.
