Loved the atmosphere, loved the food. The service was poor. From the minute we ordered, it took about an hour for us to get our food, and it was not that busy. I ordered the Mexican Burger, lettuce wrapped ($13). It was not lettuce wrapped,...More

Seems to be a very popular place in Carlsbad. The atmosphere is very cute, even though it is right on the main drag. The food is so, so, but unfortunately we had a terrible waiter.

The staff was friendly, helpful, and not over-attentive. We all had pasta dishes that were nicely prepared, and tasted quite fresh and made-to-order. Highly recommended.

So sorry we missed this. I saw it a while ago, but it was a few days after Christmas anyway. But, in case you are still curious, we were not open.

We do serve wine based alcohol cocktails. Though they are a bit lower in alcohol content, many people feel they can't tell the difference.
