Tired of "Nuvo Italo" food places...glitzy and overpriced with dishes you can't recognize? Then if so, come here. From the moment you are greeted by more than likely authentic Italian, you will enjoy what will be your night. The food is flavorful basic Italian, with specials and good soups. Service is not just good, it's enjoyable, and you will find a friend in your waiter. Some write its pricey, but I don't believe so. Your in Carlsbad, it's not cheap in any decent restaurant , and the wine list I believe is very fair. I often judge a place by that. But your food will be plentiful but not over served, and you will eat it all. This is a favorite stop when we are here, and it still doesn't dissapoint. You will have a relaxed and comfortable evening among friends.
