Being from Boston and growing up with traditional Italian food both from the North End and from both Nonna's I know what real Italian food should taste like. And this is the best Italian restaurant I have found in Florida. My family and I have dined here dozens of times and have never had a bad meal. The pizza is outstanding. The only Florida pizza place to get the crust right. And I don't know what others were talking about but they use real Italian link sausage (none of that mystery meat crumble) plenty of it and just the right amount of cheese. And you must try their stuffed artichokes, they are to die for. I have tried many of their daily specials including veal, pork and fish and all have been extremely fresh and well prepared. They make a wonderful red sauce. Even a simple gnocchi and marinara are perfectly done here. The kids are big fans of their Fettuccine Alfredo. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a great meal.

I completely agree .this place is awful I should have just thrown my money out on 41 and kept driving. I'm not a picky eater but their PIZZA was AWFUL, A COMPLETE RIP OFF! I ordered extra sausage..oh my goodness .they slice the sausage PAPER THIN. I MEAN PAPER THIN, never saw that before but that wasn't the problem. A medium pizza had exactly 13 little 3 inch long paper sliced sausage. There was perhaps 3 tablespoons of cheese I AM NOT EXAGGERATING,.and 2 cups of stewed tomatoes, I watched other diners eating full meals and they DEFINITELY WERE NOT HAPPY with their meals, I was going to have an expresso also but was afraid that perhaps they just strain the coffee a few times to make it stronger, NO THIS RESTAURANT cuts CORNERS BIG TIME or maybe it was just done toI us and other diners that are not "LOCAL" that is sad because we would have gone back to this restaurant since it is not far from our home. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY! The reason we stopped at this place was because on a flight back to chicago I met a young woman who said she managed this place for her parents and after 3 yearsI finally found it. I asked the waitress if the "PROPRIETORS were from CHICAGO, and the waitress said, what do you mean....what is that word you used? I almost fell out of my chair. I then said very very slowy "are the owners of this establishment from Chicago, and I am not kidding you, she stared at me like a deer in headlights, SHE DID NOT KNOW THE WORD ESTABLISHMENT, I had to explain this to her. THe waitress stated the owners were from ROMANIA....That is just fine...BUT LEARN HOW TO COOK ITALIAN FOOD IN THE ITALIAN WAY.

The food is very good. My wife have had great experiences with the staff as well. Very pleased with the quality and quantity of the portions. I had the chicken alfredo and the sause was to die for. We have even had the plain cheese pizza and the crust was perfect/ sause was good and service great. Thumbs up!

My wife and i have been to this restaurant a few times in the last couple of months and the food was excellent. We both like Veal. We've had the Veal Parmesan as well as the Veal cacciatore and the portions and the flavor was excellent. We've also had the plain Cheese pizza and liked that as well. The food is made fresh that's why the wait is longer. We definitely don't mind waiting for GOOD food. We've reccomended this restaurant to friends and family and they all have been very satisfied with the food and good service. Obviously not everyone has the same tastes. This restaurant is defintely worth a try !!!!

I ate at My Fathers Place in North Port FL and thought the food was good, but I missed the friendly greeting I used to get from the old owner Bob.
He was always kind with a big smile and made us feel like we were Family.
He went around to every table and made everyone feel special,
always said good bye with a GOD Bless you and drive safe.

We stopped at My Father's Place to have a late dinner. We sat down but had to wait awhile for service even though it was not crowded. My husband ordered spaghetti & sausage. I had a personal pizza. The food was good but not for the price. We had sweet tea to drink and no dessert.

Business Response:

Thank you for the Review Dear Deborah I really don`t know other REAL Pizza made by order at the price that we offer. Spagetti Sausage is not one of the best dishes in the house , i will suggest try some of the Specials on the board that i update sometimes daily.That`s a guarantee you`ll get the best of this Restaurant. I am sorry for the waiting time, i hope i will get the chance to made up next time you`ll come. Please ask about me . Thanks again and i appologise for the waiting time. With respect........Chris
