“Delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

One can eat on a small table on the pavement but the law does not permit consuming alcohol! So if you want a glass of wine you are forced to eat inside, not the greatest of decors, tv is going all the time, but the food is excellent, cokked to order and is used by the locals. Certainly worth a visit and the prices are reasonable too. Wood fired oven bakes pizza to order and is run by Italians, so they know how the food should taste!

“Pleasant Surprise in San Luis Obispo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Returned to this restaurant on the main strand in SLO for the 2nd time so time to write a review... This is a quaint Italian Bistro with a bar. First time there there we were seated in this little alcove in the bay window facing Higuera street. This was a nice location and touch to our meal. The help is very friendly and the menu is somewhat conservative. My son had the pizza which is cooked in a little brick oven right aside the dining area. The pizza was very good (this from a northeastern son who is used to good pizza). The food is reasonably priced and I had the mixed seafood pasta which was nice but not extroadinary. Overall a 4-star rating and recommend for families who want a nice atmosphere.

We had a great meal here. We were waited on by Jeasica who is the founders' daughter who works in the family business. And out bus boy was Spence, who was friendly and great and made sure we were taken care of! Food was very good and reasonably priced.

“A family place with great service and good food that makes you feel like home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Great place which reflects the deep family values of the owners, two generations worth. Italian influence is deep and genuine. Mom and dad and the two daughters make u you feel like status . The bus boys are lightened fast. Especially the one we had, Spence From San Fransico and must recently Turino, Italy. He was so great I took a picture of him!

“BAD”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Went here for a romantic evening without the kids. Hah! At least the waitress, Whitney, was lovely and the Phantom Rivers Pinot was pretty good. It all went down hill after that. What was billed as "mozarella in carozza" on the menu was nothing more than reheated (and probably at one time frozen) breaded cheese sticks. And the lobster and fish in the cioppino was dry..as in they had microwaved the broth and then stuck old fish in it. Gross. Will not go back. Ever.
