What can I say. I'm Italian and this is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the Montery area. It's a small intimate place with an excellent menu and just always a fun evening. Definitely the best Italian food in PG.

Had reservations the night we arrived but really didn't need them, it was great to be able to carry on a conversation with friends and have great food and wine. Great Service and suggestions!

We ate here for lunch and really enjoyed it! The interior of the restaurant is very inviting. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana with farffalle pasta with red sauce which was delicious. My husband had the lightly breaded and grilled sandabs which were excellent. We both throughly enjoyed this meal. This is a family owned restaurant and you could tell that they take pride in providing good food and atmosphere to their guests. Our only regret is we were leaving that day and could not try their dinner menu which has a good variety. There is also an Oyster Bar in the restaurant. We would definitely eat here again to try their dinner menu when we return to the area.

We are lovers of Italian food and wine. This restaurant is among the best we've found in Northern California. The menu is varied with both traditional and signature dishes. We found every course to be wonderful: appetizers, entrees, desserts .. Wine list well matched to menu, and prices are reasonable. If you want a five-star meal with an at-home atmosphere, don't miss this one!

Staff was wonderful. We booked reservation online and got lost getting there and they still served us dinner even though we got there after they closed. Ambiance is romantic and intimate and food is delicious. By far the best lasagna I've ever had. Will definitely be visiting again with my husband the next time we are in Pacific Grove.
