We were a group of 9. Everyone enjoyed the very varied options. Portions are not huge, as they hope that you will have 3-4 courses. This is not your family Italian spot with huge entrees, therefore the price for a satisfying meal is steep. Surprising issue. The bathroom hallway and the back entrance are nasty!!! The ice maker is adjacent... More

Lovely outside seating area, and just what we were craving after 3 days of Mexican food. The pastas are fresh and tasty, the service is attentive and this gem is just a few blocks up the street from busy Palm Canyon Drive. Bravo!

We enjoyed a dinner here on our 2nd night in PS when we fancied Italian. The place was nice and quiet at the time we went (early evening) and we were able to take advantage of the summer specials meaning our meal was good value as well as tasty and fresh. The waiter was great and although it took a... More

Strange problem with service--ice tea never came, we had to ask multiple times for check. Could well have been an off day and problem with overload. Food was average except salads were good. Location was kind of cute but you had to dodge sun at some tables, which can be a problem with various restaurants in this area where it... More

My wife and I had a nice relaxing lunch in the shade after attending an art fair across the street. We only had panini sandwiches and side salad, but the food and the service was very good.

The cocktails have been made perfect. The Ceasar salad crisp and fresh. The service was very friendly. The pasta was not good - overcooked and not up to the name of the restaurant

Being on a low-sodium medical regimen, I appreciated the willingness of the kitchen and the kindness of the wait staff to accommodate my request for veal with lemon sauce and potatoes and veggies that were seasoned and tasty but fit my diet. This was all delivered relatively quickly given the crowded dining room. Walked in without a reservation and we... More

We stopped here after attending an art fai across the street and because the menu looked good. After being seated it took a little while for our order to be taken and so we ordered everything at one time. The chicken salad had paper thin portions of chicken, the lettuce was not crisp and and the dressing was far too... More
