I was not expecting much, though based on the appearance and location I did expect the meal to be expensive. I am not sure how value anyone can derive from a review of my single meal experience - but I am happy to say that the burger was juicy and absolutely delicious as served. The service during our stay was... More

Four of us had lunch yesterday. Two very good appetizers (Raw Tuna with avocado and a side of Brussels Sprouts-$17 and $8 respectively), two pizzas (one prosciutto, one smoked prosciutto-$15 and $16), two orders of Italian Eggs Benedict ($13 each), and a bunch of drinks (draft beer, Mimosas, Bloody Mary ($6-$9). We had a nice outdoor table. All the dishes... More

San Francisco's fashionable Marina District is this restaurant's location. A trendy Italian area of our City now populated by young DINKS and an army of foreign babysitters minding the few children that graduate the parents from the DINK and into the DIOK. My cocktail, ($12.50!), precisely calibrated by the bartendress, leveled the liquid at half of a glass only when... More

We were staying 2 blocks from this restaurant so we were eager to try it based on some reviews. Our expectations were not met. The ravioli was overpriced and just plain boring. In addition, it was quite a small serving for as expensive as it was. The pizza fared better but not by much. The service was adequate.

Nice quiet atmosphere, could hear everyone at our four-person table. Very pricey vis-a-vis the very small portions. Flavors of food excellent. Wait staff friendly and helpful, just not overly so.

Awesome Italian menu, served perfectly by my favorite bartender, Monica and her sidekick Scott - give it a try, not cheap but worth every penny. Awesome bar and wine list to fit every budget!

Our food was absolutely delicious! I will warn you that the portions are very small; however, they are exquisitely prepared. You just need to order more courses. We had their pizza as an appetizer. It was delicious as well. We liked our desserts too! Our cocktails were made to perfection. They tasted like a cocktail should taste with a good... More

Large group ... great selection ... the waiter was fairly well informed and helpful. Everyone in the party had a decent meal. Some were not overly impressed but overall ... it was OK. They told us that everything on the menu was made fresh and from scratch .... great for people with allergies.
