A wonderful authentic neighborhood ristorante! We knew this was going to be a great dinner when we walked in and felt the "vibe", the excitement of the customers having a great experience. It's hard to describe this, bug you somehow pick up on this "vibe". Pasta so good I favored every morsel of it. Wine flights taught me about so many lesser-known Italian wines. After 12 trips to Italia, we appreciate this place! The owner is there overseeing, even cleaning tables, watching the flow to ensure a quality operation. In 4 years of trips to UC Berkeley, we found our favorite East Bay restaurant. Too bad it was on our last trip, as our son graduated that day!
