Fodor's Review

Famous for its wood-oven pizzas, this breezy Italian restaurant sets bowls of homemade chili-pepper sauce on every table, so you can spice up your pie. Beyond pizza, this thatch-roof, multilevel restaurant casts a wide net to include daily fresh seafood and fish specials, such as ravioli stuffed with snook or tuna carpaccio. Sit on one of the upper decks and you'll dine amid the treetops. The downstairs part of the restaurant is quite sophisticated and romantic, with elegant white tablecloths. The owners are also working to make the restaurant ecologically sustainable. Service is always fast and very friendly.
