Consistently tasty and varied Italian foods. Right off US 101 so easy to get to. Right past A and W root beer.

Got a yen for Cacio e Pepe. Or perhaps Papperdelle Cingahle. This long time Trattoria does very good versions of these classic Italian regional specialties. Add a very respectable wine list and you have a great local joint.

Good location, with parking. Service was good, with good advice. The large bar area adjoins the restaurant, and the two together make for a very noisy restaurant......too noisy for us!

A hidden gem on the side of 101 with great staff and delicious food! There were about 12 of us, and we all enjoyed the experience on the patio.

We have eaten here 3 or 4 times. The food is reliably good Italian food but I would say not outstanding. It seems to have a loyal clientele. We had veal and pasta and both dishes were good. The service seems to be longterm waiters...More
