By the name, I did not think this was an Italiian restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, we had the brushetta and caesar salad to start. I think they make the best caesar salad I had ever eaten. For the main course we had fettuccine with sausage, chicken parmigiana, chicken in a lemon butter sauce,... More

We came here after having checked into our hotel by the airport ahead of an early morning flight. Pleasantly surprised by the house specialty - lasagna. Atmosphere is ok, nothing special. Good and friendly service!

We really recommend this place and enjoyed an excellent diner! The atmosphere inside is great and we had a very kind waitress. The food is delicious: the caprese, lasagne and pollo with tomato sauce/polenta we recommend, as well as the Italian red housewine. And the homemade tiramisu, creme brulee and espresso are superb!

I love coming here! The staff is so friendly and welcoming, and I have never had a bad meal. As full as I get I always stay for dessert and an extra glass of wine or coffee.

We were looking for somewhere to get dinner before picking someone up at the airport and found this lovely spot. We'd just finished several days in Monterey gorging on seafood and wanted something sustaining but simpler. The menu was full of all the standards and every plate around us looked and smelled great. We were not disappointed! My penne with... More
