A great place to go if you are interested in authentic Italian cuisine. The wine cellar is tremendous. Amazing live music in a familiar adult scene. The owner a chef come to your table to converse greet you. Good happy hour too! Come and enjoy.

We stopped here for dinner. It was our first time. Our party had a great dinner and got out the door with a small check for 4. I would reccomend this place to my friends and family.

I went here for a colleague dinner and although I've heard great reviews about this restaurant, I would have to say that I was disappointed. The house merlot was just ok, and I would say not as great as most of the chain restaurants that I have visited. They would do better to select a new brand perhaps? The calamari... More

This is a great restaurant for a relaxing and delicious dining experience. We have gone with friends and as a couple - the food does not disappoint. The staff are attentive and not overwhelming.

Ordered to go and the food was great. They directed me to the bar for the order to be taken and the bartender was very knowledgeable of the menu and very nice. Order was fulfilled in a reasonable time.

The ambiance was nice. Despite reviews being favorable, the place was empty which should have given us a clue. First we ordered an Italian wine that they ended up not having. We ordered a second choice, they brought us something close, but not quite right. I ordered the filet gorgonzola and my husband the fish. My meat came out under... More

The location is ideal for south bay, bar, tables setting is just right. Food has always been very good. The outside Patio sitting perfect for a San Diego weather afternoon. The piano music in evenings complements the place. Greta service

Start by buying an extra package of Tums from a nearby store, then cancel other plans -you will be there a while. The food has its moments, but mostly the qualities are not worth the hours of indigestion that follow. Service is generally fair at best, don't expect your order to come quickly. That would be less of a problem... More
