Widely considered to be best non-ethnic restaurant in Lafayette, perhaps all of Lamorinda (Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda).

The place shines in all of the things you are looking for. From the beautiful building to the food.
The outdoor area with the relatively new firepit is gorgeous. The bar has always been a highlight with the copper top and the heated coils underneath. The dark wood, fireplaces and brick make the indoors very warm.
The food has great variety and everything was delicious. Try the short ribs, eggplant or penne. My wife loved the fish.
Extensive wine list for both California and Italian wines.

The food and everything about the building is welcoming. The grounds, the bar just spectacular. I have been here in the winter, summer, fall, spring and the experience is always special. Private events are also well done. Food is beautiful to look at and delicious to eat. Kind of on the pricey side, so make it a special occasion or eat a small bite at the bar!

Nice place, but the food does not match the atmosphere. Very pedestrian execution and presentation. Service was on and off and at a time nonexistent. In general we had a good time and the drinks were good and reasonable priced. We could return in our next trip, but first we would like to try other restaurants in the area.
