great food across from the cinema

Not a single meal has ever failed to please. Very high quality italian food at corresponding upper end prices. Good service. Lovely owner who one actually gets to see often. You can come with younger kids, but many guests are older so you might not feel comfortable bringing louder kids.

I keep a menu in my car and sometimes call in a to go order on my way home-Frutti de Mar is good pasta dish, we like the Funghi pasta and the caprese. For a town with not many good eats-this one is always yummy and when you eat in SF or Napa areas with any regularity-this restuarant in Orinda... More

Great, comfortable little neighborhood restaurant that we go back to time after time. More like an extension of our own kitchen. Great delicate "melts in your mouth" sole and heartier lamb shanks. Pizzas are thin,delicate and sublime from the wood fired oven. Sometimes just a hop off of BART in the evening, a hundred yard walk and a great simple... More

There is always a warm welcome at this superb Italian restaurant in Orinda. The Owner and Staff really enjoy their work and it shows in the food and ambience. I am slowly working my way through the menu and everything is good to great. I especially like the lamb and gnocchi dish that occasionally comes up on the daily specials.... More

The menu is nothing special, just sold pizza, pasta, and salad offerings that you can always count on. It's our go-to place before a movie or just on an evening when we don't feel like cooking or dealing with traffic. The honor and wait staff are always welcoming and professional.

Our family has been going to this restaurant forever. Every single dish on that menu is absolutely delicious. The service is terrific, the waiters, the bus boys, everybody has a huge smile on their face that it brings a smile to your own face. The pricing is terrific for the kind of food that they serve, and the place is... More

My wife and I have been to this restaurant more than any other in the past 2 or 3 years. It's very consistent, with good service and food. Price point is good. We are usually there at peak dinner time, sometimes during the week and sometimes on weekends. Although it is usually pretty full, we haven't waited too long for... More

Decent place is now better with the interior renovation and a good menu. Location is great. Staff are friendly and efficient. They made mussels for my son even though it was not on the menu. I've been there 3 or 4 times, but everything was very good and improved the night in Aug when we visited.

A large group of went here on a Saturday evening. Because we were a large group, they took our reservation, otherwise you have to wait. Service was ok, food was good, location great (right across the street from the old art deco movie house in Orinda). Only problem was, large number of people wait for tables, just inside the front...
