I am not impressed so far. We have been here for almost 28 minutes and all we have to show for it is 5 waters and a shrimp cocktail. No bread...No Server... no service... The chairs on the patio are incredibly uncomfortable! The shrimp were...More

This was a pleasant surprise in a beach town, achieving just the right blend of casual and elegant. The food was delicious with everything prepared to order. Penne with sausage, Alfredo, Caesar and Greek salads were all very good. They also have their own blend...More

We had the shells and the lasagna, both very authentic, mouth watering and good portion sizes too! The Limocello cake was exceptional. I personally didn't think the pizza was that great. The bread with the garlic oil in the beginning was mouth-watering.

This is upscale and everything was delicious. The dipping oil for the read is Bottled for you if you wish, $28/ bottle. We had the specials, the ribeye was tender and juicy and the grouper was melt in your mouth. Excellent service! We loved it.

I am sort of a lasagna snob. Can never seem to find one I love. Ali's has AWESOME lasagna. Give it a try.

Not to busy after church, was surprised but happy. No kids menu but the spaghetti plate was plenty for our three kids. Salmon and chicken piccata was very good. Nice little place and Nicole was great waitress

Took our daughter there for her birthday. Had a wonderful time, love the atmosphere and the excellent service. Food wasn't up to their usual standards, at least the red snapper wasn't very tasteful. It is pricey and the locals love it here. I think that...More

We (7 folks) went for my birthday dinner. I had portabello mushroom ravioli. It tasted good but was way overpriced for the small portion. Wife had eggplant parmesan. The plate had three slices of eggplant arranged on the plate, covered with sauce and cheese, and...More

Great decorations and setting but food was anything but good. Toasted Ravioli came out way to fast and sure enough it was room temperature. Lasagna came out and looked great but it lacked any kind of seasoning and it too was not hot but just...More
