“small local italian”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Very basic northern Italian and very good. Pasta portions large(good to split) and prices reasonable. Can be noisy. Attentive service. Tiramisu is a must.

“Surprise find in Lajolla”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Nice menu, great service, Classic Italian food. The food was very tasty. The cocktail list was a nice touch. A very short walk if you are staying at the LaJolla beach and tennis club.

“Family Friendly”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This place is fine, I would say the price point is about right. Id say the setting and food is a 3, with the service edging it to a 4.
Good variety of pasta and pizza - a little limited on Carne.

I'd say a lunch or family 4 and an evening meal 3.
We had a good service experience so I'm pressing submit feeling a little generous........
