After reading the Sun Sentinel review we thought we'd give it a try. What an experience. If you are looking for ambience, just don't go. Tables don't match, chairs don't match, no ambience lighting. That being said, the food is unbelievable. They have a menu but I never saw it. They just kept bringing us food until we begged for mercy.
We started with a small portion of what I would call a braised veal stew, complete with fresh bread for dipping. Next came homeade lasagna and gnocchi, followed by a salt baked branzino. All superb. I think they bake all different kinds of bread throughout the evening. Your bread may differ from your neighbor's.
The family interactions in the open kitchen (I think 2 brothers, a wife, and of course, "mama") are all of the entertainment you will need.
Dessert was a "calzone" filled with Nutella and ricotta cheese. I devoured it.
No liquor license. Bring your own wine (no corking fee)
Very reasonably priced, especially when you consider both volume and quality.
The address printed in the Sun Sentinel is wrong. It's Cypress Rd, not Cypress Creek. Call for reservations. You will need them. Ask for "Marco"
