We had dinner here last week for a party of 5. I haven't had Italian food this good since we spent 5 weeks in Sicily a couple of years ago. From the appetizers to the main course it was delicious. We shared Insalata Caprese, Frito...More

They don’t take reservations per se, but you can call after 4:00 pm and “put your name on a list.” I’m not sure what their reasoning is, so maybe they use the info for planning purposes. Cash only!! The food is so fresh and delicious....More

Generally excellent Sicilian food . Thoroughly enjoyed my crab and pasta with sardines. But it just misses out on 5th star as my companion's salad, which I also tried, had much too much salt in the dressing.

Their food is excellent. We had the fried calamari for apps, and shared orders of the seafood risotto, papadelle, and osso bucco. Wonderful flavors and good sized servings. Definitely gourmand quality. But, I really want to commend them for their integrity. After a wonderful meal,...More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the Berkeley area. We have eaten here a few times. The food is fresh and fabulous. There are long lines on the weekends, so go early, if you can. I'm sure if you can make reservations. The place...More

I like this place for its unique menu. We've had some of the Sicilian dishes and appetizers, all good. This place has several small tables with narrow walkways, so maybe not as good for large groups or people with strollers. Also, as I recall they...More

We made a reservation on their website and were seated immediately. They also only took cash when we visited this summer.
