Great local spot for great food with reasonable prices. We had 2 glasses of wine, a burrata and prosciutto appetizer, and entrees of chicken parm and chicken with gorgonzola cream sauce for $75. Both of us had leftovers. The chicken parm had 3 big pieces of lightly breaded chicken with fresh mozzerella. We were a little worried when we got... More

Dined here with friends the other night - first time ever, and it was wonderful. We each ordered something different and all were excellent. I had the rigatoni anditalian sausage in a tomato sauce, my spouse had Pasta with a tomato cheese sauce. Our friends had the special halibut and a seafood pasta. The Caesar salad was average, the house... More

wow. Talk about authentic italian. This place is so quaint, small and incredibly great. I had the pumpkin ravioli and it was amazing. Everyone at the table agreed that mine was the best. The chicken parm was amazing as well as the lasagna. Would go here time and time again.

This restaurant reminded my wife and me of one our favorites restaurants in London - the Andrea Dorian which unfortunately is no longer in business. The Italian food is reasonably priced and most delicious. Our favorite is the Fetticini al Bosco. The atmosphere is quaint and most enjoyable. Outdoor seating is available.

Myself and two others visited TPV on he recommendation of the hotel desk. We found the ambiance to be nice with a small dining room and view of the Saledad Valley. The food was good (not great) and the service was fine but nothing special. We ordered the calamari appetizer and I found it bland and unappetizing. My colleague gave... More

Tried this restaurant based on the TA reviews and were a bit disappointed. The food was just ok nothing special as I was hoping for something more based on the reviews. We had variety of dishes and the general consensus of the group was the food just missed. There are better Italian restaurant in the area and especially in the... More

We had an enjoyable meal here on a Tuesday night. There were a few tables of other guests and we were glad we'd reserved so I'd recommend calling ahead. I had pumpkin stuffed ravioli on recommendation from here which was very pleasant. We found it expensive for a local Italian but the food and service justified it.

This restuarant is easy to get to but hard to find. Did not see any sign indicating the name in front. We parked in the rear and saw a sign for the "rear entrance" - however, you walked past the trash and through the kitchen. It was a very poor first impression and would recommend walking around the front. Thankfully... More

Great food and service. Try the calamari for sure, and the cheesecake is wonderful. Nice location to boot.
