While visiting the Bay Area, this place had the best food, service and value for my week visit. This place is a must stop if in Oakland or Berkeley. See photos posted by iGrade.

Working in the area and friends brought me to Southie. Wonderful time together sitting at window counter sharing yummy food. Great salad with egg and delicious meatballs with polenta. Good wines and beer to choose from. Enjoy being relaxed eating tasty food.
