Delicious, fresh, Italian-inspired California cuisine. My husband says they make the best pizza in all of Alameda (and it's a close second in my book to East End Pizza) and they have tons of Gluten Free options for visiting family members. The salads are interesting and excellent, and their seasonal specials are almost always delicious.

We were visiting friends in the area who took us here for lunch in June 2014. There were 5 of us and everyone loved their meal. Our waiter was very attentive, and helpful with advice and frequent checks to be sure we were happy, had refills, etc. We were catching the ferry to San Francisco after lunch and his prompt... More

Very good, fresh food. Great menu. Got the June special pasta. Everything is very reasonably priced, beers included. Glad we went here before the A's game.

We had dinner on a weeknight. It was a little busy but we were able to be seated right away outside, which turned out to be perfect! It's a nice patio that has a cozy feel. (I'm pretty sure a nice size "baby" Redwood is next to it). My husband got a cheese personal pizza which was tasty and very... More

Great thin crust pizza, and really good salads. Friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices. Fun venue for after the movies at the Alameda Theater.

We have a three year old and a ten week old, so we eat here frequently. It is a beautiful space where we rarely have trouble getting a table. The food is good, not great, but good. My son loves the ravioli with cream sauce and the kids' pizzas, which also make great appetizers. We receive fair service and everyone... More

Quality, creative menu plus old stand bys. Space is too loud. Remodel was done really well. Their frequent diner card is a hit at our house.

Order either one of these and you will be happy you did. Waiters are very helpful also. I like that they have whole wheat spaghetti which is hard to find. The marinara sauce also has no oil for someone who is watching their cardiac diet. The salmon was the best I have had in years

A rather busy place but I don't quite understand why? The food and service was good for me but I did see some anxious customers wondering what happened to there server and where is my food. The Piadine wrap on flat bread was good but I really didn't like the concept. Some might like the messiness. The Lasagna was very... More
