Dropped by on the recommendation of a friend and sampled some appetizers and wine (all half off). We enjoyed the special tomatoe-cheese dipping sauce served with the bread. He loved the shrimp sauteed in sun-dried tomatoes and white wine, I especially liked the grilled eggplant parmigiana. Since we were there early, we had a chance to chat with Salvadorean owner Miguel and his staff, all very welcoming and efficient. Located a block away from touristy Ocean Blvd (San Carlos between 7th and 8th), this restaurant is not as crowded, but offers a warm Italian atmosphere. "Dolce Hour" offers half off appetizers and wine by the glass is daily from 3-5:30pm during off season. The rooftop terrace will be very inviting once the weather warms up a bit and we look forward to returning soon!
