Fodor's Review

This trendy eatery is one of the more sought-after places on equally trendy Beach Drive. It offers a fresh, imaginative approach to Italian fare. Dishes like ravioli Genovese, stuffed with fresh goat cheese and toasted pine nuts, and the lobster mac and cheese with black truffle breadcrumbs, are some of the more decadent menu items; a spate of colorful salads and flatbreads make up the lighter side of things. Specials often feature fresh, local seafood. There's almost always a lengthy wait for a table, even on a weeknight, so reservations are really a must. However, sitting at the bar, which has an equally creative beer, wine, and cocktail menu, is also an option.
