Great Italian food in a local setting - blink and you'll miss the restaurant as you are driving up San Pablo (just north of Solano). Parking is on the street and behind in the lot by Merchant's Bank (after hours).
The service and attention was excellent though I have to say the matriarch (I believe) was a bit brusque since they were out of the pasta that came with one of their dishes. Rather than telling me what pastas she would suggest as a replacement I went through a guessing game with pasta types that I liked until she became impatient and then spelled out what they had available. The restaurant wasn't busy either so that was not an excuse.
My pasta dish was large to the point that I couldn't finish it but my companion's ravioli consisted of only 6. She is a tiny 5' and found that this main course was not enough to satisfy her appetite (after a salad starter and bread). It was very good though, she enjoyed it but just wished they were more generous in the serving size.
Overall the food and service is excellent. Were it not for a somewhat rude response to a problem created by themselves (running out of a pasta type) and the smallish size of my date's main course I would have given it an "excellent" rating.
