“Busy Local Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

1) Get there early - parking is crazy! 2) The restaurant gets crowded quickly! Only open for LUNCH! Typical Italian food -- The special is the 1/2 and 1/2 - half Luigi's beans and 1/2 pasta, comes with choice of roll and very small antipasto. Monica's salad is good too. Daily specials. Very friendly staff and service. Sit at the bar if you don't like crowds. Lovely little store next to restaurant with lots of Italian food and wine.

“Busy place so they must be doing something right”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

I found it difficult to find something on the menu for lunch. The menu layout was not what I would call traditional "American" but seemed more like what I saw in Italy. I settled for the special, an Italian dip sandwich. It was good, nothing special to me. The service was excellent and everyone was very friendly. Parking seems to be an issue.

“Great food and local sports history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is great from the pasta to the tri-tip (the establishment was closed to the public since we were there for a a private dinner, but it would be worth the wait if going there for lunch). A stroll down memory lane with the walls of local sports pictures and small gift shop next door if you are looking for something unique.
