  What more could we ask for? Wonderful company and excellent food. What we shared: Prince Edward Island mussels with smoked chorizo, lemon confit and cilantro, served with grilled, buttery Italian bread, a hint of garlic. The best mussels of any restaurant in town, bar none. Yellow fin tuna crudo with mashed avocado, shaved radish, ginger/soy sugo/ and a rice cracker – a delicious medley of tastes. The special risotto – creamy, with grilled octopus, golden beets and cauliflower....

The beautiful sun-catching apartments that the whole town adores have been deemed unworthy of sharing their silent beauty with all boaters and for sure Island Beach Boat passengers. It is scary to think of this change because it symbolizes something enormously sad. To ignore this feels irresponsible. These are historic gems. Their architecture reveals a former way of living. The people who live in them now still love keeping this way alive. Imagining what these...

  It was nice to see a good crowd on a Wednesday night at Firenze. And although almost all the tables were taken, it was still possible to converse, thanks to the new acoustical tiles they have installed. The men started off with the Tagliere to share: an abundant board of Italian hams, salamis, delicious cheeses, olives, grapes, walnuts and honey. This is a wonderful taste experience, but it does leave you pretty full. Determined to have...
