Absolutely fabulous Italian restaurant. Our waitress was very charming and the whole service was excellent. The mussels were deliciously perfect and so was the veal scallopine. We ended our night with their Limoncello.... It was the best I've ever had.

Description
We are a local, niche, authentic, Northern Italian restaurant. Casual by day - formal, black tablecloths, by night. Each evening we provide several different choices of "specials", which range from fish,meat to vegetarian and even organic options. The Chef/Owner is from Venice Italy, and has carried his passion across the seas to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Nearly 5 star reviews, across the board, are credited by his customers for his enthusiasm and sincere, down-to-earth, style. The restaurant is proud to share its Venetian heritage with South Florida.
