Amazing italian restaurant. Food is delicious! The penne alla norma are a must. Generous portions (family style), so I'd recommend to enjoy the visit with friends and take the chance to try as many different dishes as possible. Very friendly owner. Whenever I come back to Berkeley, I'll visit again for sure!

This romantic hideaway near the Berkeley campus is always crowded for good reasons: great food and warm hospitality! My wife had the whole Dungeness Crab appetizer as her entree and I had the mushroom ravioli. The crab was served with a lemon, butter and garlic sauce and my ravioli had a creamy garlic and onion sauce. Both were outstanding and... More

My favourite restaurant in Bay Area. If you are in SFO you have to go there even is little bit far(Berkeley). Food is so good and you can have "family dish".

I was here on Tuesday night. My friend and I had a table upstairs as it was warmer there. Oh, this is at least the 5th time I've been there. I keep coming back for the incredibly awesome, authentic food. Real noodles, real Sicilian food. But warning about upstairs. Everything that comes up or goes down, arrives via the stairs.... More

I lived in Berkeley for 15 years and this was my favorite place and my go to place. I used to go there almost every night. I know the D'Alo family and the restaurant very well. This restaurant is on College Avenue (Elmwood Section) and there are some fine restaurants on that street near Ashby Avenue. I went to Trattoria... More

Had been meaning to come here for a long time and boy am I glad I finally did!! Although small and a bit warm, it felt so authentic and cozy from the moment I arrived. Service was a bit sporadic but both our server and his assistant were quite charming when they interacted with us. The dipping oil with the... More

We arrived a few minutes before closing but felt immediately at Home. We just wanted a main course and desserts. We had a delicious dip laced with herbs and garlic to accompany some warmed bread. Main courses were spaghetti and tomato sauce and clams and pasta. Delicious desserts to follow were tiramisu and a lemon ice cream. The coffee was... More

Enjoyed dinner there on a Sunday night. Good was great. Enjoyed watching owners young children ask how our meals were and help out before they set down to their own dinner. Highly recommend.
