Post Race Disappointment Walk in at 730p on a post race Saturday. Seated right away. Order taken quickly, only to return 15 minutes later with "we are out of pizza dough". Then 20 minutes later to we have no lasagne. Now, it's Saturday pre-dinner rush. Begged for some bread and were warned the kitchen is "taking forever" to do orders.... More

The owner was super friendly and we enjoyed the food. They have a full bar and people seem t like to sit and drink on patio. The crowd is mostly locals and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Very cozy atmosphere with a great little bar. Eating inside or out on the open and covered patio is perfect. I had a caprese salad with fresh home made mozzeralla, heirloom tomatoes, large leaves of fresh basil out of the garden and topped with fresh sliced proscuitto. Fresh EVVO from Italy. Just melts in your mouth good. Nice choices of... More

If you are in a hurry, this may not be the place for you. Food was outstanding. Staff was very friendly. The service was very slow- I don't know if it was by design or not. If you're looking for a relaxing meal with no fear of being rushed out, brought dinner while apps are being eaten, or brought the... More

A family run Italian restaurant that is worth the stop on Highway 101. whether you're ordering pasta, meats or seafood fare this is an awesome place to stop. Run by two brothers and their families it is very warm and cozy inside. You will enjoy the family atmosphere.

A friend and I went for lunch on Tuesday 3-22-16 to case the joint. We are scheduled for the cooking class at the end of April and read the yelp replies both positive and negative. We started with the Baby Calamari Parioli appetizer that was "Awesome". It was sautéed with pesto and pinot grigio. I had calamari many different ways... More

Stayed in Solana Beach for a few days and ate at this restaurant. My husband had the orecchiette with Broccoli di Rabe and Sausages and he loved it. Said everything was cooked correctly. I had the Chicken Piccatta. I thought it would be chicken medallions but it was a large chicken breast butterflied so it was a rather thick piece... More

Staff was very nice. Food was average. Only been there once. I would try it again however. Atmosphere was very nice. We got there early and they were not very busy. Great location.

I was staying at the Courtyard next door and didn't really have the energy to hop in the car, so I took a chance on this place. As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the food. Since I arrived on the early side for dinner, I was the only one in the restaurant. The service... More
