Venetian room. We had a very nice time. The food was excellent, the service was wonderful and the owners were very accommodating. Thank you for a great first experience.

Expected a lot more than what was delivered. Server acted like she didn’t want to be there. Was told they were out of a certain pasta. Ordered a panini only to be told 10 minutes later that they didn’t have bread and were making it and so it wouldn’t be ready in time. If you are going to compete with Louie Bossi, that is literally steps away, you need to be too notch, this place is not. Walk the fee steps down the road to Louie Bossi.

Love this place but this was an “off” night for them. Server was stretched thin (wasn’t very attentive because he was working in the other room) and my chicken piccata was hard as a rock. Hopefully this was just a blip because this place has great potential if they focus on the customer!!

We started out having a reservation for their new restaurant called ‘The Venetian’ which is attached to the original restaurant but the food selection was minimal and we moved into the other side. It took 20 minutes to get bread for the table. They have a nice menu but that’s where everything good stopped. Two of our dishes came out the the other 2 had to wait at least another 10 minutes but 1 was totally wrong and my wife didn’t like hers at all.

The steak was over cooked my sons steak looked like tongue rather than ribeye. One of my guest asked for a pasta with the white sauce and got a red sauce pasta and was told that, that’s what she ordered( She always orders white sauce). Also the food presentation could have been better for the type of restaurant it was.

Pretty restaurant. Service was friendly. Food was ok, but not worth returning to. There are so many great Italian restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale, that this one can be left for the tourists.

What a prize of a restaurant ! The food was exquisite. It is a welcoming and beautiful atmosphere. Our server, Patrick, had a complete knowledge of the daily dishes and made fine recommendations from the wine through dessert. He was most attentive and pleasant. Hats off to Frank for a job very well done, as this is truly a culinary experience not to be missed...it will have you coming back over and over again !

We ate at the bar and have a great service and great food. Pizza and meatballs were outstanding. The highlight had to be the LED screen on the ceiling with the changes every 15 minutes or so.

The place is just OK, I expected much more. The only thing I really enjoyed was the octopus appetizer. The waiter was too much on us and I felt rushed through my whole experience. I purchased a bottle of wine and I would have purchased another but I couldn't be their any longer. The place was empty so I don't understand the hurry.

Salmon and asparagus was the best of three entrees. Pasta and shrimp- pasta was gummy, fresh??? Grilled romaine salad was good but the order was for shrimp - we had to wait as chicken was prepared instrad. There were only three other tables so it's not as if there was a huge crush of orders. Wanted the profiteroles for dessert and they were"out". Best was the service. We are locals and at least we tried to patronize a new restaurant but won't be back.

Went for their boozy brunch and we were the only people there from 11:00am til about 1:00 so dont think they were going to get much of a crowd. It was raining but was kind of weird to be the only people eating in the entire place for almost 2 hours. But they did have bottomless mimosas and bellinis...I would of preferred Bloody Mary's but I settled for bellinis that were pretty good. They have an "omelet station" that Ordered which was pretty small and disappointing in looks but it wasnt bad tasting....service was ok but we were the waiters only table so I'll leave that there. Probably wont be back as we usually go to a neighbor of theirs for brunch but wanted to try a new place. Was not impressed but not totally dissappointed either. Hope they make it? Place is decorated really nice and a great location.

Piazza Italia was mediocre at best. The hostess was not accommodating nor was the service. Price wise; outrageous for what was served. Do not waste your time or money!

This is a fun place to stop by while strolling down Las Olas Blvd. We were most recently here on a Wednesday night and the restaurant was extremely busy. The bar was filled to capacity (eclectic crowd that is almost as interesting to watch as is the ceiling). Most of the tables, inside and out were busy too. A few large parties were going on and there were plenty of locals to fill up the place. My husband and I shared 4 appetizers and all were very good. One did have to be sent back due to the temperature (served very cool instead of hot), but the waiter was very accommodating. We will certainly return.
