New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
In a space no larger than a living room, tucked next door to a Publix, is an Italian restaurant with only six tables and no set menu. Marco Spina, his mother, and his sister cook and serve southern Italian cuisine that changes daily. Usually, they offer three seafood entrÃ©es (try the Bronzino), three meat entrÃ©es, and three pastas (mostly lasagna, bowtie pasta with marinara, and linguine with clam sauce). Appetizers are equally interesting, ranging from roasted peppers to eggplant caprese with a crisp light breading and fresh mozzarella. Something else that's missing: alcohol. But feel free to bring your own bottle of wine with free corkage. Before ordering, you may want to ask how much things are. Food is very tasty, but some dishes can get pricey.

Simply amazing Italian Food! Marco Spina, his mother, and his sister cook and serve southern Italian cuisine that changes daily. No set menu. Really unique experience.
Eggplant parmesan! Excellent
Food was absolutely amazing !
A real Italian restaurant - Naples style - with no menu, just great food! BYOB - no corkage fee. A true gem!
The menu changes on a near daily basis with dishes ranging from wood-fired pizzas and homemade pasta to fresh seafood, grilled steak, and lamb. Beer and wine are not sold, but there's no corkage fee.
