I dined here on a Saturday night. Worth the wait!! I had the pasta special, lobster linguine with a cherry tomato sauce and an order of focaccia bread. More food than I could eat! It was delicious. I highly recommend.

Nice pizza selection though I got a basic one. The service was very friendly. Had a lot of specials listed on the menu board. I sat near the kitchen prep entrance, crazy busy. I would definitely go back next visit.

Friends and I, we shared four pasta dishes. "Lasagna", "Boscaiola", "Carbonara" and a cheese sauce. The lasagna was unusually greasy, though interesting in taste. The carbonara was a bit too greasy too, but enjoyable. Boscaiola was okay, but nothing special. The cheese sauce was nothing...More

I can't say enough about the food and the service. The homemade pasta, pizza and appetizers are all delicious. They also have good wines by the glass. We are so happy there are two locations now, truly a gem in San Diego!
