My girlfriend's family owned an Italian eatery so she doesn't let me get Italian out a lot. This is one of the few places she will go. Mostly I like the meat only ravioli being lactose intolerant. The portions are huge so be warned. But

This is an AMAZING Italian restaurant. The portions are large and the food is full of flavor. A bit expensive but well worth it. Great location and service.

This place is a good after work date place. The prices are good for comfort food, although I would say the the menu is pretty small. The ambiance is nice.

Greek Salad and Crab Ravioli... my fav! The best part is that you get to bring your own wine and enjoy the views of sunset while you sit back and relax. Its a great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You feel like you're in a busy Italian city in this place. The wine is charged by how much you drink and the food is amazing. We love to meet firends here, as kids are very welcome. Bring your appetite because you're sure to want to eat until you can't eat anymore.

C&O Trattoria has the best ambience I have seen in awhile. The restaurant also has amazingly authentic Italian food and really nice and attentive wait staff. Be prepared for a long wait BUT get excited for the wait because the servers will bring around C&O??s famous garlic bread balls to appease your tummy??s while others finally forfeit their table. Also, there is a Koi pond and fountain in the courtyard. So basically, guys, if you want to get some action take your lady or any lady in general to this place.

Instead of a basket of bread they serve these little, warm garlic rolls that are amazing. If you ask, they'll even bring you a little dish of freshly grated parmesan cheese to dip them in. I could be perfectly happy eating nothing but these for days on end.
The food is tasty as well, and the portions are very large. If you get the pasta you have the option of getting a larger portion, and I think that was the only meal I've ever seen my dad unable to finish in one sitting.

So, go for the rolls, stay for the food.

one of the best italian places around. the best garlic rolls that are never ending, pasta that yakes 5 days to eat, and house wine that is fun and flavorful. awesome atmosphere a block from the beach and though you need to get there early, its worth it.
