I wanted to come here for our anniversary dinner. I tried to call THREE times for a reservation but no one answered I even had the hotel we were staying at attempt to call as well but they were never able to get through. As it was only a Thursday early evening dinner I figured we'd be all right to... More

Kflanigan, I am very sorry for your difficulty on Thursday evening. We certainly did have problems Thursday between 4-5PM. Our early Server had an accident and was not able to be there for opening at 4PM. Our Hostess had to become a server and take care of 5 tables that all came in at about 4PM. Even though they were...

Menu mostly wrong .. words in french mixed with italian .. mispelled most of the time. Pizza was very small and gummy. Music from the 60's (italian ) - I dislike - . Personnel very kind !!

We went in about 15 minutes before sunset and ordered a bottle of Californian red and two of the calzones... They were magnificant! Best calzones I've ever had:-) I would definitely recommend this place for dinner. Fabulous views, lovely staff, good wine selection, and cracking food:-) what more could you want?

Very empty dining room should have been a signal to leave, but... Decided to order a couple of calzones. At $12 each you would think they would be really good, but no the case. The calzones that were delivered to our table looked like an over-done hot pocket. The waiter was pleasant, but that didn't save them from a crappy... More

We should have gone elsewhere like the 7 other people who left whilst we were waiting for our table to be prepared! Served by several different people in a very dis jointed way - food was mediocre at best - and they added several incorrect items to our bill! One to forget sorry!

Toby, I am sorry to hear of your experience. When was this visit? My son and I are normally there in the dining room visiting with customers and to make sure problems do not happen. Was it on Labor day weekend.? It is very common for multiple people to help out on a table. That is by design and I... More

I had the eggplant Parmesan and it was delicious! The Chianti was also very delicious! The waitress was very attentive and the food came in a timely manner.

Went in for our 3rd anniversary. Heard it was family friendly and with a 2 yr old that's a plus. Never imagined that it would be that great!!! Walked in and truly second guessed a place this nice would be good for kids, it was. They seated us in prime seats(not shoving us in the corner), and when they brought... More

This is bar none the best Italian restaurant I've ever eaten at! The food is awesome, service very good, view excellent and I'd go back in a heartbeat. I've been two times in the last two weeks and I would go tomorrow again if I was in town. Amazing food.

We had a conference in Novotel and needed a place for lunch. What a surprise it was to eat in this restaurant. The place was full with people at lunch time. We had to wait for a while before getting a table for 2. But it was worth waiting as this was the best Italian lunch I have ever had.... More

I've lived in Morro Bay for about a year a half now and I've yet to dine here. I had a friend come in to town and he wanted Italian so I thought I would try it out. I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews but I'm really glad I went despite what some reviewers said!... More
