I had the steak with Gorgonzola and Vidalia sauce and a beef tenderloin bruschetta. Excellent wine list. There's not a bad bottle in the book. Went with the Segasi Zin. My wife had prawns and scallops with a goat cheese salad. This is one of the best little restaurants I've been to anywhere, much less than in a place like Saint Augustine, where there are so many opportunities to get sucked into a sub-par meal. If you're in town or just driving through, Collage is worth the stop.

Insanely delicious, savory, melt-in-your mouth Southern Italian cuisine with layers of cheese and pancetta happiness and a nice family feel. Sorry, but I'm still stoked from the aftertaste of the incredible dinner that I just enjoyed at Stefano's. The biggest praise that I can give this restaurant comes from my parents, who were also there to eat with me. My mom can cook. In particular, she can cook Southern Italian food that is out of this world, Mario Batali eat your chubby heart out good. She does not like eating out at Italian restaurants because she knows that she can cook better at home, and she is right. So as she took her first bites of her eggplant, I waited in silence. "This eggplant is incredible! I have never had eggplant this good out!" /internal sigh of relief/ My wife had the Chicken Bolognese, which had a Marsala wine sauce on it. Incredible. We passed forks around, and it was unanimous. I had the Tortellini de Stefano. (Tortellini in a creamy meat sauce with pancetta, smothered in cheese and baked in an oven). Again the forks were passed. Again, unanimous. My dad had their sausage specialty. He said it was good, but he did not offer to share and none of us were brave enough to stick a fork his direction. He mentioned that their red sauce was excellent. That's huge. If the "gravy" is bad, it's all bad. This one passed. Our waitress, Alicia, was top-notch. She was friendly, prompt, gave excellent recommendations, and made us feel at home. As mentioned in other reviews, Stefano himself came by as well to meet his customers. This is so key to a memorable family-run restaurant, and it shows in the quality of the food and service. The salad was just okay, but I wasn't there for the salad. For dessert? "Leave the ________, take the cannoli." (Insert whatever dessert you were thinking about ordering into the blank). Their cannoli's are awesome! Crisp, fresh, flavorful shells filled with the perfect consistency creamy, cheesy sweet filling and chocolate chips. (The chocolate chips are important. If your cannoli has dried fruit in it, you can keep it.) These were a celebration of crisp, creamy perfection with sugar on top. My mom's final verdict: "This is THE BEST Italian restaurant that I have eaten in since moving to Florida (about 40 years ago)... When are we coming back? I don't have to do dishes tonight." If you are looking for a memorable, authentic meal, just go. Ask for recommendations, and trust their suggestions. If you are Stefano himself and are reading this, is there any chance you'd be interested in sub-letting a corner of your restaurant to me and my wife as an apartment? Really. I want to move in. Think it over, then get back with me. Grazie.

My wife and I are huge fans of Tripp Harrison's painting, and it is nice to see that he has his own gallery now to showcase his work. This is one of our favorite stops in St Augustine. Tripp's paintings feature an almost photo-realistic attention to fine detail and the most gorgeous depictions of Caribbean seas that I have ever seen. The Harrison gallery is fine art without pretention and has lithographs and giclees at reasonable price points for those of us who can't afford originals. There are some nice galleries in St Augustine, but this one is the most memorable. It is also the home to some beautiful salt-water aquariums that your kids will love.

Chocolate pralines FTW!! I'm not into sweets typically, but Savannah Sweets smelled too good to pass by. I had the chocolate pralines, while my wife had one of their caramel apples. Awesome pralines. Sweet, but not unbearably. Smooth, not gritty, texture. Worth giving a try.

I am a huge, huge fan of Chipotle. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan of THIS Chipotle. The burrito was good, but not great here. Service was very good. More importantly, the seating is absolutely awful. Uncomfortable. Like sitting on crowded bar stools without elbow room while trying to eat. Would I go back? Yes. Given a choice, though, it's worth the drive to the Altamonte Springs location in my opinion if you're dining in.

Nice store, well-organized, and featuring some unique home decorating merchandise. My phone review draft simply stated, "Pier 1 for hipsters." That pretty much says it all.

If you are a guy looking for a quick gift for your wife, girlfriend, sister, or mother that won't break the bank, you could do far worse than Dragonflies. Creative, unique silver jewelry fairly priced.
