Nice spot - old school.

Good Italian food. With a group, so family style appetizers (just okay), then individual entrees. The veal was very nice. Plenty of food & nice sides. Lively bar scene mid-week in sleepy Menlo Park, but dated 80's decor was a bit of a detraction.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant. Make sure you book as it is very busy. The cocktails and food are wonderful. I had the carpaccio starter which is simply divine and the veal is to die for. The blueberry panna cotta was wonderful too. Service is slow however when you are relaxing with a group that works well allowing for... More

After several years of avoiding this place after a chef change we returned twice to try again. We wish we hadn't. Even the simplest pasta dish was over seasoned. Dishes were hot once upon a time.. No longer. Service is good, decor is good. Food.... Is not good.

Good food on a reliable basis. Calamari dinner is great and ask for the veal chop which is worth the money. Meatballs are good and of course the Carpaccio is great. Ask to sit in the front.

We were there for drinks only, but really enjoyed it. A classic place, neighborhood bar, and the staff are super friendly. Cocktails excellent also.

This was listed as a special place....the atmosphere was excellent as were the server and hostess. With the exception of the pizza the food was average. The chicken was pounded so thin that it was dry, the fish was okay, and the carbonara a total disappointment. The pasta was overcooked and the sauce was too thick and had too few... More

If you manage to go when they have Lasagna don't miss it! The eggplant parm is out of this world and you can't go wrong with the sole. Sand Dabs are great too.
