We have eaten there twice and both times have been impressed with the quality of the food and service. It's not a large menu, but based on our experience you can't go wrong

This is a very small, modern restaurant located in the heart of the Rockridge district of Oakland. With only five tables and a counter bar it has an intimate atmosphere where it is easy to engage your server or the owner in discussions about their food or their extensive list of Italian wines.
