LaMotta's http://www.lamottasitalian.com/ family style casual Italian also is very good food and great service located in the same plaza as the Roadhouse Cafe http://www.roadhousecafefl.com/ If you are looking for a local pub offering great food at a reasonable price, we also enjoy Poppy's Pizza off McGregor road, they deliver or go in to see the place and catch the sports game on thier big screen tv's.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: We are both from the Northeast (MA and NJ) and have lived in Florida for many years on the east coast near Fort Lauderdale.

              Why the Owner Chose Ports Of Iona:
              We have always enjoyed coming to the west coast of Florida. We have traveled from Marco Island to Tampa and Sanibel/Fort Myers has always been our favorite destination. We finally had the opportunity to get our own sanctuary away from the hectic east coast.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The water views from our lanai are spectacular and peaceful. Being able to some of the nature and wildlife that has all but disappeared from most other overdeveloped areas is one the most special things about this area and the nearby islands. We see large turtles, fish, exotic birds and an otter family right from the lanai. It is a quiet area but close enough to find excitement or entertainment if you are looking for fun.
