We stumbled onto this quaint place on a Sat night. While we had no reservation the stars aligned and they had a table available. What a blessing! There are no words for what an amazing time we had. The atmosphere is quiet and cozy. The staff was beyond nice. And the food....holy moly awesome! Samuel gave us such special attention and described in detail the menu items. He truly left an impression on us. Here is what we ate: oyster soup (very good broth and flavor), pear and Gorgonzola salad (super yummy), gnocchi (very good but our least favorite), saurkraut and sausage (hubby is still talking about this and he was a former hater of saurkraut), cheese ravioli with sage butter sauce (off the charts amazing), salmon in wine butter sauce (sauce was amazing), rack of lamb (incredible), mushroom risotto (very good but rich, would do ravioli as main next time and not do risotto). The food was truly out of this world. Total bill? $140! Now we did not have wine or dessert but still an amazing value for the price. Whenever we visit San Fran Albona will be a MUST VISIT. Thank you so much Samuel and staff.
