We were told to eat here by some locals, their tip was sit at the bar since we had no reservations . That was a great suggestion as we got right in, had great seats watching the creation of great food mostly made in a wood fired oven. I had the sausage and beans my husband had the carbonara both...

We had been here for lunch once and liked it, so we returned with family for dinner. In fairness, the entire experience was suboptimal since we were seated next to a huge group of drunk people who were so loud that we had to lip read to communicate at our table. But even leaving that aside, our experience was just... More

My wife and I tried this out Sunday and we're NOT disappointed. Since it was Sunday did not expect it to be busy and it wasn't. But from the moment we walked in you'd think we were VIPs. They serve as a team and waited on us hand and foot. Started with the Bruscetta, it came out quick and was... More

Upscale italian food with great service. We have eaten here on a couple of special occasions and date nights, we have always enjoyed our food and service. My only complaint is the seating inside is VERY close together and a little claustrophobic for me. I try to reserve seating outside because it is a pet peeve of mine.

This place is walking distance from the Santa Ynez Inn, so convenient if you stay there. We sat on the enclosed front porch on a lovely evening. The Heirloom tomato salad was exceptional, and our pasta dishes were very good as well. The wine list was reasonable with wines chosen well to pair with the offered dishes.

I'd give 3 1/2 if I could, but I'd rather round up than down because they are above average, so 4 it is. Had the spinach and beet salad, the carpaccio, veal piccata, stuffed calamari and rigatoni with mushroom sauce followed by the apple tart. All tasted fine, service was good, etc. Just didn't have the special quality that puts... More

We've been here many times and I've reviewed them before. It's always consistently good here. I usually get the gluten free pasta with spicy sausage sauce and it's great. The menu is huge so something for everyone. My husband often gets the pork chop and he's blown away by it. Also the stuffed calamari is excellent. The service is always... More
