We have always had great meals in this authentic Italian restaurant. Their calamari and Tira Misu are outstanding, but the entrees are all very good. We eat there on every visit to Half Moon Bay.

expensive for a simple breakfast that really had no taste. Staff not nasty but not engaging. Relatively clean but overall there is a McDonalds down the street.... a better option for breakfast.

Mostly Italian. We want to several restaurants in the bay area and cold bread and butter must be the norm. Anyway, these had olive oil for our bread, really nice gamberi in spicy sauce. #1 choice.Very good service. Get a reservation.

The staff was very helpful for our unusual requests regarding food content from an Italian restaurant (no tomato sauce and no heavy cream :-)). Our wait was short and the food was good. A bit too much oil.

We do not have outdoor dining at the restaurant but we have an outdoor patio at our Caffe (walking distance). We have some harbor views in our dining room.
