Had a group of 15 and everyone loved it - young and old. Private room in the back made it perfect. And kept us a good distance from the music so we could talk. Carrot soup was an unexpected delight and salmon was a big hit as was butternut ravioli with sage butter. Good wine selection by the glass and... More

I have taken several customers to eat here over the last 4 years. Food is always fresh, tasty and interesting. Drinks are strong and inventive. Definitely a bit more pricey than your other joints but worth the wait. Outdoor seating is charming and really shows off the California lifestyle

However when I ate it the Chicken... More

The food was excellent, service a bit slow. We had reservations for 6:45 and still had to wait 30 minutes for a table for 6. However, we have been here before several years ago, and I will go when in the area again!! Just make the reservations for early and know you will have to probably wait for excellent food.

We were served in the patio which was heated. The appetizers, main dishes were out of this world. I would recommend this place to everyone.

Was there Sunday, May 25th. Ate with several runners that completed the Mountain 2 Beach marathon. Our party had 15 folks and we were seated quickly and given a private room. The bread and dipping sauce was served which was outstanding. Ordered the meatball sandwich and enjoyed it! Hope to return soon. Service was excellent.

We went on Sunday before Memorial day and the restaurant was full of loyal followers. Everything we saw and tasted was delicious. We had a warm chocolate flour-less cake that oozed chocolate sauce an had a real (not candy) candied orange on it with our coffee and complimentary warm cheesy delicious focaccia bread. The ambiance was old world Italian charm... More

I never wanted to leave. Delicious yet cheap happy hour food and wine on a cozy patio. A delectable bread pudding after. Lovely staff and atmosphere, and dog-friendly.
