The food is good; not too expensive. It has pizza, pasta, Italian dishes and it's all good. Check your bill as there have been a few errors on ours.

There are many good things about this restaurant. Comfortable. Close to the Orinda Theater. But I ordered the calamari salad. The menu did not mention raw onions. But the salad was riddled with raw onions. They amounted to about half a cup. I would have...More
