This was the second visit by my wife and I since May 2018. This visit was to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary! First, the atmosphere is extremely comfortable. It’s quiet enough for easy conversation yet the space grants one the freedom for spirited dialogue as...More

My wife tried to get a picture of my order but was too slow. I’d already removed the large lobster tail from the mountain of shrimp, oysters, clams, and scallops atop a large bowl of pasta and delicate marinara perfectly suited to the seafood. Her...More

Took reservations. Very nice decorations and ambiance. Good waitstaff. All had pasta dishes. Very authentic. Negative surprise when we learned they charged for bread. Not cool. Food very good. A little short staffed.

We had a wonderful dinner here. My husband doesn't eat pasta and the server was very helpful in helping him find something. One of the best dinners we had in the week we were in Destin. We will definitely be back.

We’ve been coming to Destin for 5 years, how have we missed this wonderful restaurant. The Maryland crab stuffed ravioli was unbelievable. The bread and oil that came before the meal was so fresh and yummy. It is now my new favorite.

Our family of four enjoyed a meal here. We shared 3 entrees. Everything on the menu was priced separately including the bread! The homemade olive oil & garlic dipping sauce was fantastic. Entrees averaged $22 and up for most selections. Portion size was generous and...More

The staff is always friendly. The food is amazing. My husband said the lasagna was the best he has ever had. The crab stuffed ravioli with shrimp was also amazing. The side salads are huge. The bread is hot and fresh.
