We arrived at the restaurant about 4:55PM, 5... More

We love this place. We are slowly working through the menu and have yet to be disappointed. The lasagna is amazing as are all of the pasta dishes. Try the salmon piccata. What a surprise. The wait staff is great, especially Leslie who has a dynamite personality.

First impressions of this little place on the PCH might prompt you to pass right by. Give this place a chance. The staff is very welcoming and kind. The food was excellent. Most outdoor tables were for two to four guests. My husband had the steak special and I had the scallop linguini. We loved our server who was attentive... More

We went midweek and were able to get the pick of the ocean view tables. Our waitress was excellent. She was fast, attentive and made good suggestions for our wine selection and meals. I had veal saltimbocca with meat sauce rather than the normal sauce and my wife had eggplant. The meals were excellent and the price was very good.... More
