Visited here with someone who lives in San Francisco and describes it as his favourite Italian restaurant. I was doubtful but tried the gorgonzola and pear pizza and loved it!

The food at this small restaurant in excellent, especially the bolognese. Unfortunately can't say the same for the service. Perhaps the servers were less energetic because it was an unseasonably warm day, but 10 minutes to be offered a drink?
