Wonderful and friendly Italian restaurant. My husband and I have been coming here for a few years now. I especially love the pizza, the cotoletta milanese, and the desserts (all of them are amazing, but the flourless chocolate cake is my favorite!). And I had my first Affogato here (which is vanilla gelato with espresso and whipped cream), it was amazing. The atmosphere is lovely, the service is outstanding. Highly recommend! P.S. The parking is free and super easy.

My HH and I dined there on a Monday evening. For starters we had a special antipasto and the Carpaccio. Both had way too much arugula on top. Our entrees were the Lasagna and a special risotto which was a Bolognese sauce mixed into the rice~it was weird and I didn’t finish it. The best thing was the $100 bottle of Darioush wine we had.

We found this place through our wine tour guide and it was a nice gem. The food and service were outstanding. It's a small restaurant but the flavors are big. We tried the Tortelloni di Zucca, which were raviolis stuffed with pumpkin, ricotta and Parmesan cheese in a butter sage cream sauce with walnuts and the spaghetti with meatballs. Highly recommend a meal here.

My friend and I have been coming here for many years...in fact it is the first place we stop on our way to Solvang for our bi/annual visit. First the first time I was disappointed. They didn't have Spinach Ravioli . This was shocking as this is one of their best dishes. I love this plate of food so much that I linger on it long before I arrive there. I tried the Butternut Squash Ravioli and while good...it just isn't the same. We also had the Grilled Veggies...very good. We will return!
