One of the best Italian restaurants in SLO for family. Great food and great service. Good selection of wine too.

They have a delicious Raspberry Salad that is so fresh with their own Raspberry Dressing. It includes greens, walnuts, fresh sliced apples, and a healthy portion of blue cheese. The Mango Tea is refreshing. The Service was perfect. They have remodeled the restaurant and the atmosphere is even better than it was before. Come in and see for yourself, you... More

We ate here after friends told us about how good the food was and the ambiance. We're new to the area. Boy were they right! Lovely setting with a contemporary fireplace (even one in the wait area by the cute front bar!). Cozy dining room with great comfortable booths and tables with chair setups. My only complaint is that the... More

I have eaten there three times in 2011. I did not care for any of the food. THe steak was not very good and was overcooked. The pesto came from a can and was not very good. I did not like the Pizza. Three times was enough. A lot of my friends like this place and they have a great... More

What they do, they do very well. They have an extensive pizza, pasta and specials, including fresh fish. Each item we picked came well presented and tasty. Nice atmosphere with fireplace and comfortable seating. The wine list included many local wines by the glass and extensive choices. We enjoyed a local unknown to us Pinot. Everything went well from start... More

We sat by the fireplace, very nice. The background music was nice. The appetizer bread basket is always terrific. The waitstaff did a great job at keeping up with tea, bread, and a clean table. We had the raspberry salad, and the salmon special (on a bed of risotto). Very tasty. We topped it off with the creme brulee, which... More

Was waffling between the 4 and 5-circle rating choices. Overall, this restaurant was great. My wife and I ate there for our New Years Eve meal. First time patrons. Cozy atmosphere- would describe it as romantic. Service was excellent- staff very attentive and the food came quickly. They seem to be known for their pizza which we both ordered. She... More

The bar is friendly and inviting. Happy hour food specials will ruin your dinner! Pizza, calamari, and omg the artichose hearts are sooo good. Then on to the dining room, preferably next to the fireplace, for a nice Italian dinner. Apparently the new executive chef will be changing the menu soon - the staff believes it will be more upscale.... More

We had lunch after hiking so we were ravenous. It was fantastic. The bread is great. Atmosphere is pleasant and the service was good.

Our dinner was a Friday night. We called before leaving home to put our name on the list since they don't take reservations for four people. The restaurant was busy so we had about a 30 minute wait. Our waiter, Joe, was a delight. He was personable and efficient. The food arrived hot and pleasant to look at. One thing... More
