Foursquare Tips

  • Fritto Misto is always a winner
  • The upscale Italian restaurant has a sister caf featuring wood-fired pizzas. We recommend the white pies, with a flavorful, meaty topping.
  • Parmesan souffl is a must. The Parpadelle (forgive my spelling) is wonderful as well.
  • Beautiful surroundings and impeccable service, but get there early if you want to dine on pizza and gourmet burgers for lunch outside. It can be tough to get a table.
  • The chicken scaloppine is the most ridiculously good dish you will ever taste I promise.
  • Phenomenal food here. I had the mushroom agnolotti which was outstanding. Leave room for dessert. Also has a great happy hour at 9-10pm each night on the Cafe side.
  • Try the Chicken Pesto pizza.
  • Try the grilled chicken pesto pizza.
  • The cafe side has a much more lively (and, in my opinion, more fun) atmosphere than the restaurant side, and the food is every bit as good.
  • Best focaccia bread ever; great nicose salad
  • Try the roasted peppers. You can thank me later.
  • Grapefruit Gimlet is delicious!
  • Good food, but the service was too fussy for me.
  • Everything!!! I'm having trouble deciding
  • Solid option for a splurge in the Birmingham area. Excellent cocktails & seafood.
  • Go to the cafe, not the restaurant. It's delicious. And if you like tea, get the iced tea with mint honey in it. (as told to me, not my personal recommendation)
  • The Parmesan Souffl was amazing. Had Braised Short Ribs that were so very tender and flavorful. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Atmosphere was A++.
  • Fantastic food and service. Menu changes frequently with availability of fresh ingredients. You literally cannot go wrong with anything on the menu. Enjoy!
  • Wonderful setting
  • The chicken scallopini is FABULOUS as is the seven layer coconut cake!
