Had it not been for the reviews on Trip Advisor, we would have missed this gem on our recent visit to Pacific Grove. What an incredible Italian restaurant experience. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you feel welcomed. The decor is warm and inviting. The owner immediately came over to our table and welcomed us. We started our meal with prosciutto di Parma, so fresh it melted in your mouth. My friend and I also shared the potato leek, onion broccoli soup as well as the beet salad. Delish! For our main entrees our table split the gnocchis, due to the owner's recommendation - the most amazing light, pillowy gnocchis I have had outside of Italy...fantastic! My husband had a carbonara dish as well as a side dish of meatballs. Once again the best Italian dishes I have ever had in the US, and my in-laws are Italian. To top off our meal, we had the classic Italian dessert, tiramisu. Wow!! If you are in the Pacific Grove area, don't miss out on this incredible restaurant. You won't regret it.
