Authentic and delicious

Delicious Italian food! We shared several starters, including the eggplant polpette, which was very original and fabulous. The calamari with faro and beet salad were also awesome.

We live in Mill Valley north of Golden Gate 15 miles so traveling down the Penninsula is not something we do regularly. However, my CPA, Italian, is in San Mateo and I needed see him to prepare my taxes and he recommended this place. Let me say that dining for us these days is not just the food but the... More

Just loved the outside seating (inside is too noisy). Food is simple italian but good, pizzas are fine crust and wood oven cooked

I ate here with a business colleague and liked it a lot. I'm not sure I agree with the others who give it four or five stars, but it's definitely a nice Italian joint. The decor is minimalist modern, the bar seats about 10 or so. Reservations are a must, this place gets full fast, and you can only make... More

We were having a hard time finding places open late in Palo Alto, and these guys were perfect. Great pizza and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

We ate at the bar on a Saturday night and the service was friendly and fast. The place was jumping and had a good atmosphere. The food was ok, I had the sea bass and my wife has the gnocchi. The romain lettuce app was really good. Drinks were ok. Definitely worth checking out if you are looking for a... More

This small restaurant was a great respite after a long day at Stanford. Located on California Ave, parking is best behind the restaurant in garage. They offer a small area of outdoor seatings. Pizza was unusual but so good as well as the grilled romaine salad!

We dropped in without a reservation and the place was full. Since there were places at the bar, we decided not to wait and ordered a drink and take a peek at the menu. What a great selection and variety of food including pizzas (looked terrific when brought out) to full meals. We shared the prosciutto appetizer, which included cheese... More

Very good raw materials and a big wood-fired oven, so the pizza is delicious. For Italian people it's a simple way to taste flavors from home. I'll come in again.

The review that said 'best burata' got our attention as we love burata. It was not bad, but certainly not the best we have had. It has a different presentation than you see in most places. It is served over tomatoes and no bread, although you can ask for bread. But this IS a pizzeria. An interesting one, but a... More
