Intimate friendly place with excellent food. We didn't try the wines but they are supposed to be great. Had a solid family meal that all enjoyed. Burgers and platters and it was all good. Will return. A very good place.

We really loved our visit!! After reading the reviews, I was eager to try this place. The atmosphere was perfect for what I wanted- a slow, romantic meal. Our server was excellent. She guided us both in our choice of wine flights- sauv blanc for me and cabs for my husband. We had the charcuterie and cheese plate ($25), where... More

This was a really nice place to have dinner! The food was good and the wine choices were wonderful. I brought my two tween kids and we were all made to feel very comfortable there. We had the calamari which was excellent! The food is a little pricey, but had we known we would have arrived a little earlier for... More

What a cute little restaurant/bistro. There were five of us so we sat outside and moved a couple of tables together with the help of willing staff. The Southwestern Chicken panini sandwich was wonderful. I don't usually eat the whole sandwich but I did this one. Others had the burger (great)

Found this little spot last minute on Yelp. It ended up a great location, the atmosphere is great, friendly staff, Amazing food. I recommend the steak Frits, my bf had the west chicken sandwich. We also shared a blank and white wine flight. A great place for a romantic dinner.

I don't even like wine, but go often because my friends do and this place is casual, open, inexpensive, popular, and FUN. Staff are very friendly and easy. You can sit outside and talk for hours under the heaters in winter or inside and stay cool in summer. Decor is sparse, but menu is great.... Jessy's Salad & Bianca Pizza... More

During a recent visit to Carpiteria, we met up with an old friend and chose this place for a meal. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food selection was really nice. I had the chopped salad and my husband had a burger. The food was really good. It's been a couple of months since our visit. All I... More
