“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Make a reservation, this place gets crowed fast. Food is good and service as well. Tiny place so seating is very close together. Affordable and good. GO!

“Cucina Italiana piacevola”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Pleasant and authentic ambience, delicious, well prepared pasta; charmig host, reasonable wine list (try the "house" label sangiovese cab - a steal for 30 bucks. And the pasta is to die for.An altogether delightful evening.

“A Bit of Tuscany in the Santa Ynez Valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is a charming property. We ate dinner on the porch and had a nice gentle breeze on a warm evening. With an extensive wine list and an outstanding menu, we had no trouble finding a perfect meal. The cioppino and fettuccine bolognese were superb. Salads are large and full of interesting ingredients. Bread served at the table is crusty and perfect for dipping. Service is wonderful.

“Great food service with a couple adjustments.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Great food tho we had difficulty understanding the specials. Not sure if it was servers accent or boisterous restaurant. Beet salad was amazing and stuffed calamari was great as we're our fish and pasta dishes. Disappointed with burnt creme as it was runny and less custard. Overall, great value for our $$. Most Entrees in the $20 range. I'd go again.

“Terrific food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a wonderful meal here-we could tell it was a local favorite as it was packed when we arrived. The food was outstanding, and the busboys are anything but! They were so pleasant, at-the-ready for anything my husband and I needed. They were wonderful. I have to say that our particular waiter was not friendly, and seemed annoyed and ornery. I would still re-visit this place to give it another shot because despite the waiter's attitude, we had a great meal.
