About Us

About Us

Chef and owner, Guglielmo Ianni, has been preparing authentic Northern Italian cuisine since 1976. He began in Chicago and Wisconsin, but since 1991, he has brought to the Emerald Coast of Florida a fine Italian dining experience.

Legendary for his seafood and pasta dishes, one of Guglielmo’s signature entrees is the whole fish of the day; locally caught fresh red snapper for your dining enjoyment.

“My mother, Adalgisa, gave me the inspiration to pursue culinary talents, which led me to study in Italy and compile Mama’s recipes. Now, I am passing my talents on to the third generation, my daughter Theresa, continuing the Ianni family traditions of preparing authentic Italian cuisine for you to enjoy. For all of our dishes, we only use the freshest ingredients, choice meats, fresh seafood, and garden vegetables. We are fine dining at its best, but we consider the restaurant to be casual, yet comfortable, with a quaint touch of Italy. We want you to feel like part of our family.”
