This review comes from Angelashealynn from Fort Lauderdale, and she gives her view of Canyon Southwest Cafe and her experience, “Favorite spot in Ft. Lauderdale so far! We have been here a few times and can’t get enough! The service is always fast and they have great specials. The calamari is SO GOOD but the mac and cheese is even better.. I would like, swim… in the mac and cheese i love it so much. the portion sizes are smaller so be aware of that when ordering and get a few things – whatever you get, you will love. It’s within walking distance of our place and we love it.

It is a Brazillian steakhouse with servers walking around with a variety of meats that are perfectly seasoned.

Terrance from Port Saint Lucie, FL talks about his eating experience at Casa D’Angelo. He begins by saying, “Week Night Dining. Since this was not my visit dining experience at Casa D’Angelo, I feel that this review is honest and genuine. I took two of my best friends to the restaurant as they had never been there. Our server,”ABA” was simply spectacular.” Terrance goes on to say, “She did not leave a stone un-turned in regard to the presentation of the menu and the dinner specials. If there was some items that we did not understand, she took her time and explained everything. Once our food came, it was fantastic, as usual. The chef at this restaurant will do anything within reason to make your dining experience simply wonderful. The restaurant is perfect for special occasions as well as anytime dining experience.” He finishes, “Thank you to the staff for a truly great time. My friends and I will be back.

Piccolo Ristorante
2826 E Commercial Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308-4206
Type of food:Italian, Mediterranean, Gluten Free Options
Website: NONE

This is a longish review from Sonia W, but seems to go into some detail. “BEST restaurant I’ve been to! I travel all around the world on business, and I have to say Piccolo Ristorante is the best restaurant I’ve been to.

Sonia goes onto say, “I’ve been to Piccolo Ristorante more than a few times now, and each time I go – I am certain they will be better than the last. The first time I went there, it was pure perfection! I go back – hoping for the same authentic, delicious, delicate, boutique, exquisite experience as the first time – which has never happened (how many times have you gone somewhere that impressed you the first time, and never lived up to the first time?) and as unbelievable as it still is to me, they outdo themselves. My second time there was better than the first, my third time was better than the second, my fourth time…no way they can keep beating themselves…well, they did – and they do!

The chef makes such food that I could only dream of making myself or even tasting together! It is true art and a delight for all the senses!

I have never written a review before, but time after time, Piccolo Ristorante impresses my family and me. The service, the attention to detail, the delight of the food, the ambiance, all of it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! But beware, only the most authentic of palates will truly understand the authenticity and true gem that is Piccolo! No fake food heated in a microwave here, and no generic everyday food either! The menu is a floating menu, and I absolutely LOVE how the menu changes. It just keeps getting better and better!

Sonia, finshes by saying, “I cannot wait to go back and see what Chef and staff have in store for us next time!!!
