The food here is solid Italian with the owner being the chef. The only downside is that you can get up sold on wine if you're not paying attention.

This restaurant has been here for 10 years and many people have not tried it. You owe yourself a visit to enjoy a wonderful experience from the service to the warm atmosphere to excellent food. There are many Italian restaurants in Vista but this was our best meal ever! I had the NEW item salmon fettuccine (sounds weird but excellent)... More

This is a cosy restaurant with outside seating weather permitting. I've always found the food fresh and tasty. It has a full bar and a good range of draft beers and wine. It is rather small so can fill up with those who know it. It's well worth a visit.

Was here for dinner with some friends. The place looks OK...food is fine. But the service is poor. There is a lady that serves you food...she looks tired but is trying to answer your question. We lost 25 min with our bill.

This was our 1st visit. We had a party of 6. The restaurant is located in a strip center . It is small with seating for about 50 inside and an area outside. The owner met us as we entered. We ordered 4 veal dishes. We had our salads & soup. 30 minutes later they informed us that they were... More

Visiting our son, he suggested this little Italian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! Food is traditional, very tasteful at a fare price. It's obvious the owner takes great pride in his restaurant. We sat out front in the patio area. Our waitress made frequent visits to the table to check on us. This is not fast food, lasagna came in... More

We were in San Marcos visiting a relative and wanted a quiet meal with him at a place with good food. He surprised us with this place, unpretentiously sitting in a very commercial area. Tony, the owner, gave us some of the best Italian food we've eaten for a long time. I tried the vongole (in white wine sauce), because... More

Good and authentic Italian food perfect for lunch. Staff/owners are friendly and serviceable and always with a smile. The place is dim lighted for a cozier feeling. Try their sausage sub...my favorite! Salud!

I found this through TripAdvisor and it fit our needs: moderately priced Italian food near us. My kids were ravenous after a long day at Legoland, so the time it took to get food on the table was a problem. But once it arrived, they devoured it and some of my spaghetti as well. Even though all our meals came... More
