Just happened upon it on our drive home from Sacramento! Food was SO flavorful and HUGE portions (means lots of leftovers!). They even make their own wine. Very friendly staff and nice relaxing atmosphere. Must do!

Despite the dining room only being around 50% full on a recent evening we (a party of 5) sat & sat & sat waiting for someone to acknowledge we were there. By the time a server came to our table we were literally within 30 seconds of getting up and leaving. We ended up eating here but everything considered would... More

The kids liked their pizza. We had calzone (enormous), pas5a and pork tenderloin. All of the entries were great. Service was excellent. The only problem is finding the place. It's behind a bar, next to a flower shop, well back from the street.

We had a very nice Hawaiian style pizza without cheese. The service was nice. If you like sauce, you should ask for extra. They didn't put much sauce on the pizza, but they covered it with ham and pineapples.
