This longtime favorite serves large portions of homemade pastas that can be matched with any of their homemade sauces. Tables are arranged in a brick garden hung with twinkling lights and in a cozy, casual dining room in an old house. Everything out of the open kitchen is outstanding, including the bollito misto di mare (fresh seafood sautéed with garlic, shallots, white wine, and pasta) or the memorable spaghettini "schmappellini," homemade pasta with asparagus,
tomatoes, pine nuts, and Parmesan. The wine list—with more than 350 offerings—includes old and rare vintages, and also has a good by-the-glass selection.

This restaurant didn't live up to our hopes. The food was fine but not exceptional. Service was slow and not especially friendly, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Our water glasses were never refilled.

Every year when we are in Key West we make a point of visiting this restaurant. We love the outdoor seating area and the quick and prompt service. The homemade pasta is fabulous. Will definitely visit Dec. 2010.
