Service and View Are Tops. New chef is only just putting his mark on the menu. Former Chef Giuliano was the very best and there is no reason to believe that Chef Alesso (?) won't excel as well as the management has a reputation of seeking leaders for the kitchen.
For a Special Occasion !!
The food and the service were outstanding!!!! Our only complaint was the noise level and how they sat everyone on top of one another instead of spreading the tables out. They were not sold out.

The staff made our evening a wonderful experience. From our first contact, we were asked about any food allergies or concerns. Our server made excellent recommendations on the menu. The food presentation and flavors were fantastic. The surprise anniversary wish was a special treat. We were made to feel welcome and important. We look forward to returning on our next trip to Marco Island.

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to give it a try. We have been to much better restaurants for the prices they charge. This would not be a do over for us.

I've dined there a few times & had excellent dinners & drinks but this time our apps where half cold. Mine was replaced immediately but my fiancee didn't say anything as he thought maybe there just having an off night but he paid for that thinking in the middle of the night.

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL RESTURANT! WE ARE LOCALS THAT LOVE FINE DINNING! WE HOPE TO BE BACK SOON!
We were in Marco Island I wanted a special night for my wife's birthday and they did not disappoint. The view from where we were dining of the sunset was beautiful. The food was amazing and the service was nothing short of outstanding. A must see if you are on Marco.
Always great food service and view!!!

The food was delicious and service was great. Unfortunately there was a private party outside and we didn't get to go or sit outside. Overall would recommend. Reminded us of a good New Jersey Italian restaurant.
Beautiful setting, good food but not outstanding, they need to control families with misbehaving children and get better music. Marco Island seems to have blaring music every where, not sure what the deal is. Guess that's what all the Yankees like, lol
dining with sunsets
A great place for delicious food in a wonderful setting. The sunset can be spectacular and the service prompt and enjoyable.
Low quality food
We ordered pasta with sausage on top. Pasta was uncooked and sausage was hard. Not tasty. Also my daughter ordered steak and it was too dry. Overall we pay too much money and we did not receive outstanding food.

A favorite of ours when visiting Marco Island. Love their fish dishes! Staff is very professional and service is top notch. Watching the sun set while dining there is such a nice experience.
This is a beautiful spot to dine. I wish we had looked at the menu in advance. We are not picky eaters but found it difficult to find a dish we really wanted (especially for an Italian restaurant). Many of the dishes had pork in them which I do not eat. Even when I thought I found a safe pasta dish I discovered it had tuna eggs in the dish. I ended up with the Chicken Marsala which was good and we shared an eggplant parm appetizer that was excellent (wish I could've had that as a meal). I like to have more choices so therefore would probably not return. The atmosphere and service was impeccable therefore we would absolutely recommend this restaurant to others but highly encourage them to peruse the menu first. This restaurant was a little pricey but not outrageous.
Great View. Good Food.
This restaurant had a great view and good food. We thought it was a bit pricey, but the service and view were obviously what you paid for. The food was good, but nothing to write home about.
Great location on the water
We were there for lunch, intrigued by their dinner menu and were a little disappointed in the selection on the lunch menu, not very Italian. The food was great though, we both had the lobster roll that was reasonably priced and had large pieces of lobster. The restaurant itself overlooks the Gulf and the gorgeous water, the place was very elegant. We will try dinner next time were are on Marco Island.

My wife's entre came out cold. My cod was to be prepared without potatoes and extra onion rings...did not happen. Vessy worked hard to make it right but overall not as good an experience as the Saturday before.
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset evening with a tasty dinner served professionally. There was however a noisy private cocktail part adjacent with our dining area that fortunately ended early into our dinner. It still remains a wonderful memory of a great evening.

The menu included a wide selection and the food was excellent. The service was truly memorable. Our server was extremely knowledgable and provided perfect recommendations for both the food and wine selections. And there is nothing like the view at sunset. It was a perfect Anniversary dinner.
good news and bad news
So the good news...it is a great location with a lovely vyiew of the sunsets and the food is very good. The bad news ? While the server was very friendly and attentive the food service was incredibly slow. The hostess who took our reservation call was cold, impersonal and on the edge of being downright surly. We came close to cancelling our reservation.
View is amazing, but food was mixed.....
Some plates were pretty good, but then others were just so so....but luckily the view and the ambiance out weighed that

Service was excellent...food was just ok. Very small portions . Very hard to understand the waiter...most have very thick accents...the view is excellent...
We just had our first truly fantastic meal on Marco Island. Although this restaurant is expensive, the food is delicious and the service is impeccable.
