A Sunday night and this was the only reasonable looking place to eat at. Nice jazz quartet and some dancing. We all had a variety of dishes, but all were excellent, as was the attentive service.

We came upon this Italian restaurant after leaving the harbour front. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxing. They had a live jazz band which were fantastic to hear while eating delicious pizza and pasta dishes. Well worth a visit when in Monterey.

There were wonderful local musicians playing making the ambiance relaxed and a little sexy. I had the gnocchi trio which was exceptional. They had some great local wine on their list. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal and the entertainment.
