Taste Like Italy

Who doesn’t love the smell of garlic? Well if you visit The Garlic in New Smyrna Beach, we hope you do; you’ll probably leave smelling like it! This authentic Italian restaurant will sweep you away to the tastes, sounds and sights of the Tuscan countryside without ever stepping foot off of the Atlantic coast. The atmosphere is quite unique, as you’ll enter through an arbor with vines into a garden with lush greenery and lit trees. Inside the restaurant is the Blu Bar, where you can enjoy fine Italian wines, beer, cocktails and martinis. Here, you can also find live entertainment nightly with local performances by musicians like Mark Hodgson, Amy Alysia, Mag Sax and Joey Harrison. Executive Chef Michael Perri and his team prepare mouthwatering Italian entrees that have, if you’d like, 'lots of garlic'. Garlic rack of lamb, surf and turf, roasted duck or Cioppino – a seafood stew and Chef’s signature dish – are some of the classic dishes they prepare so eloquently, where you cannot go wrong.
