This is a wonderful, intimate restaurant in a lovely semi residential area in Oakland. The "Glenview" area is a bit of a gourmet ghetto with no less than seven restaurants in a two block area. But this is my favorite largely because of the terrific food and wine menu, but also for the great, friendly staff. The sunchoke fritters and farro salad are my favorites as well as the house made beet ravioli (awesome believe me!). Great for take out and for sitting at the bar as a couple or single. This place can get busy so make a reservation just to be safe. Parking is an issue but there are parking valets you can use in the area. You will love the attentive staff - they always make me feel welcome!
