Just a short walk away from where we were staying we found this restaurant to have delicious food reasonably priced and live entertainment couldn't ask for better.Oh I should also mention their wine list was not bad either

Stopped in for lunch on our drive up the coast and we were very pleased with the food, service, wine list and general ambiance. Plus they are dog friendly! We sat on their front patio, not the most beautiful view, but the Caesar Salad and the beet salads were very good and the pizza margarita we split was excellent! The... More

The restaurant looked very appealing from the street, but we were not happy when we got in. The service was very poor. My Fettuccini was one big lump and my wife's crab cakes were on the burned side. Our Server was very very busy so she really didn't have time for us and the folks were upset with their meal;... More

I have eaten her twice before and the food was great. But our food on Saturday night was not good. There were five of us and none of us liked our dish. Robbie's Ribs were burnt and they had to bring out a new batch, my chicken was rubbery, pasta was bland and three people ordered Saltambuca which tasted like... More

Loved our evening at this restaurant. Dinners were great. My boyfriend had Spaghetti Portofino. He thought it was outstanding. Very fresh and flavorful, good-sized portion of fish and pasta. I had Cappellaci di Zucca. Delicious! Also very fresh and flavorful. Probably the best pasta dish I've ever had. Warm, friendly, attentive service in the bar and restaurant. Bruce, the manager,...

Part of a chain of local Italian restaurants and all are very good. Can be crowded, so make reservations. Pricey, but so is most of California. $40+ per diner to be expected.

The restaurant is small, and the tables are clue together, but the food is very good, and the service is efficient. I have eaten there several times and enjoyed my meals. Encinitas is hopping these days, so it is extra fun to go there.
