Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Florida. The pappardelle was delicious! Mariangel was a great server as well.

Oh how refreshing to have a sit down dinner again on a backdrop of this pandemic. They do practice CDC guidelines: masking, safe distance between tables.

They have a short sweet menu. True to the Milanese roots of the Chef-Owner, who courteously greeted me from his open kitchen, the menu was not a litany of marinara entrees like many so-called Italian dives in America. The selections reminded me of Tuscany and the Italian north.

The Insalate Mare was delicate yet textured, with generous portions of octopus, squid and shrimp, with a short dash of so very slightly sweet dressing. The entrees included lamb, duck and fish, but I went for the Special (yes there’s a board of specials for day, wine & entrees).

Having been watching my red meat, this was the time for the ribeye special. It was a perfect mid-rare, very well seasoned, surprisingly low fat cut of prime meat. It married very well with a delicate Gorgonzola sauce. It was accompanied by a small (just right) portion of baby potatoes and slightly larger portion of wilted spinach thus making the ribeye truly the star.

Best of all, dinner went exquisitely well with a bottle of Pievasciata, a super Tuscan (can’t drink it all and was allowed to take it me).

Highly recommended. True dining indeed.

The food and service is amazing!! I can’t just pick one thing as my favorite because it’s all so delicious, but hands down, the tiramisu is the best I’ve ever had! I would post a picture but I was busy eating it all
