    One of the better Italian restaurants in Orlando. I loved everything except my overcooked spaghetti, which I ordered al dente. Great sauces and flavors!

    One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Actually, we have not had anything even close to authentic Italian food since we went to Italy. They have amazing specials. and everything is homemade and so fresh--the bread (YUM), appetizers, entrees, and the delicious desserts (try the Tiramisu)!! It is a hidden gem!

    A small family-type Italian restaurant in a strip mall. Nothing fancy. The food was not bad. As simple as it gets, but the chef is Italian and the food has much more authentic taste, than in any other fancy Italian restaurant in Orlando.

    We went there for Mothers Day and were excited to try this restaurant due to great reviews. Horrible service. The waitress was overwhelmed covering lots of table so she would constantly say I’m busy with other tables when we would request items. Restroom was dirty and smelled bad. Main room floors looked dirty. The pizza looked and tasted like school cafeteria pizza. The soup we ordered was so salty we couldn’t eat it. The calamari was soggy and greasy. My pasta was almost uncooked and too much wine was used. Very disappointed and won’t go back

    We had a great meal with family celebrating my son‘s graduation from UCF. Our server was a young lady/student who was fabulous. I feel bad that I forgot her name. She was attentive very well-versed in the menu and have a fantastic attitude.she seemed to love her job. She was blonde and is a plant science major. Please take good care of her!

    This was a last minute reservation because it looked good and was open later than most other places It turned out to be one of the best Italian restaurants I’ve been to in years. That includes some of the best in northern NJ and NY. A great surprise.

    I had too many Great fashions... I forgot to take photos of our entrees!! The staff was very nice and so was the bartender, the Great fashion was so deliciously orange flavored. Unpictured we had the gnocchi and risotto and both were delicious. Though, I think the beeftip risotto may have been better. For desert we had the tiramisu and a canolli which I didn't expect to be interesting in. The sweet ricotta had the best texture and the pistachio Ice cream was great. I can't wait to visit againnand try more dishes.

    Our server was very sweet and attentive. The desserts were delicious. Unfortunately, our main dishes were all disappointing. My mother had the chicken parm. The quality of meat was very poor. It was mostly grizzle. She ate very little of it. I had the steak and it was swimming in a pool of oil. My husband had the fish. He said it was flavored well but the portion was small. Maybe they were having an off night, but we would be reluctant to go there again.

    Server Daniel was awesome and it’s our second time having him as our server. He is always energetic, knowledgeable, and attentive. 5 star service from him. Food was delicious and priced right. It’s a very unassuming place, in that you don’t necessarily affect the high quality of food that they out out from a place in Waterford Lakes. But they do a wonderful job of putting out really great food. The antipasto board, soup special, and pizza were really delicious. We will continue to come back!

    They forgot my appetizer, after 45 minutes when I ask her about it they bring it up bruschetta with a strawberry left over and one of them it looked like had been bitten. They brought to the table the wrong appetizer after 45 minutes in a few minutes later they entry plates it was not good at all

    We had a group of 11. The receptions we were invited to was so overcrowded, I needed top get my Board of Directors to a less crowded venue for a decent dinner. We were at the Orlando conventions center and finding a local restaurant on no notice was impossible. Couldn't find a restaurant to accommodate us immediately. This place was 21 miles away...but as it turned out, it was worth the trip. The waiter was delightful. For a storefront restaurant in a strip mall, the food and service was way beyond anything we could have hoped for. the specials for the night were out of this world! Go here and you will totally enjoy your meal

    I had reservations which they confirmed and when I got there they said there weren’t any reservations for me. My spinach salad was just a bunch of spinach drowning in dressing with 2 slices of tomatoes. The pasta dishes were very skimpy. But the server was on point.

    Our open table reservation was not received and when we showed up we were not expected. Same thing happened with Coopers Hawk when I called to confirm an earlier reservation, no open table reservation logged there either. That is why we switched to Papa Lozzi. Anyway they were not about to lose a group of eight so they re-arranged and sat us. The restaurant is expensive but the food is really good. Open Table should figure out what hapenned so that it won’t happen again. Next time we might not be so lucky.

    First time visit and we were very pleasantly surprised. From my Grandma's Gravy, to my wife's Baked Ziti, to my son's off menu requested dish, all came out tasting deliciously homemade. Joaquin was on point, yet not intrusive. We will definitely be returning.

    We’ve been here many times and the food and service has always been great. But this most recent experience was not great. The food wasn’t as good as it has been. The order wasn’t right. The service was slow. I had to ask if they still served bread. Overall i was so disappointed since we talked it up and took friends and it wasn’t a good experience

    We walked in and the rap music was jarring. Absolutely not what would be expected in a fine dining experience. That music says “eat fast and get out.” No one was at the host stand when we came in. When she finally seated us, she wasn’t sure where to put us & was flustered. The server didn’t know what “burrata” was when we ordered and she attempted to “correct” me and tell me we were ordering bruschetta. We weren’t. Finally, we had the tomato & burrata appetizer. The tomatoes were not ripe at all and barely approaching red. I would not have served them. The server brought bread with dipping oil that had vinegar but no seasoning. We attempted to order items from the menu that were out. The risotto special we got was undercooked and way under-seasoned. Unfortunately, there was no salt or pepper on the table to assist. Plus, it was watery, which was odd. The server didn’t refill our beverage or ask if we wanted to order dessert. Perhaps we got them on an off day, but I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone and certainly won’t return. That bums me out because I just moved here and try to always support locally owned businesses — especially restaurants. I respect business owners and certainly what they have been through in 2020. But our experience was just so not good.
