“Great service, great happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Happy hour and the early dinner menu starts at 3pm. The deck outside was so nice. Easily seated, the very attentive waiters were awesome. John was our waiter and very familiar with the wine list. Juiien was second and covered very well. Watched how they treated the others and caring is the best word to describe. The mussels and calamari are great appys. $5 glasses of wine! Enjoy

“Early dinner was a great bargain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We went for happy hour and an early dinner. The early dinner menu was varied and all four meals were excellent. Lots of wine choices for happy hour. Lovely patio as well. I tasted the cheese ravioli and the salmon - both we're fantastic.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

My wife often tries the lasagna, and is usually disappointed because she makes it so well herself. Not this time! She and I both loved it. Especially notable was the reception and service we received. Even though they were near closing time, they welcomed us and treated us like we were honored guests. That usually comes from the top down, so the training must be good.

“Great food, great service great views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

There were 6 of us and it was the first time for any of us to dine here. We got there early on a sunny afternoon and sat out on the patio. Two of us ordered from "the early menu", three courses for $18, and the others selected from the antipasti and in all cases everyone thought the food was great! The service was also first rate and Giuseppe made a point of coming around and asking how everything was? We all had a wonderful time and will be back again soon!

“Oh so delicious and Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We choose this for a birthday dinner and it could not have been a better choice! The service was very attentive but not overbearing. We could see our waitstaff watching and waiting while we ate our appetizer and had our first beverages - they were at the ready to bring on the next course/drinks but gave us a chance to enjoy what we had! It seemed like they were right on spot! The food was excellent - we started with the Antipasto Mista plate for two, a delightful way to start the meal, with excellent choices of cheeses, meats and pickles. For our main courses, we had and I would recommend both the Bistecca al Porto and the Salmone alla Griglia! Both the steak and the salmon were perfectly cooked and the flavor of both were outstanding! We sent someone else there after our visit and they both ordered the Lasagna (pasta lovers) and they said it was the best they ever had. I have eaten at many Italian restaurants before (including in Italy) and was very impressed by the authentic, well prepared food and service here! I believe this is the best food, service and ambiance you can get in Bellingham!
