We made a 6:30 res. We arrived a little early so we sat at the bar while we waited. Nice bar tender, bar seats available, we both got a glass of wine. We were seated within 15 minutes, and the bar tender nicely carried our tab to the server. Our waitress was sweet and professional. Our wooden booth was cozy and romantic, and the lighting was nice, however the drop ceiling and decor are out dated and a bit "low rent". The evoo with olives was fantastic, but I was surprised the bread wasn't heated or at least better. My husband got the "meats and cheese" to start, followed by a side of pasta and finally the pork. None of which was fantastic, but the pasta being the best. I had the caesar which was so garlicky it was all you could taste. I was totally unimpressed with the salad. We really wanted to try the gnocchi so we got a side to share. It was out of this world! For an entree I got the eggplant which was quit good, sauce was nice. No doubt the homemade pasta they do well. In comparison to other restaurants we went to in Booth Bay this was one of the best for sure. However, it wouldn't stand up to the better restaurants in Portland.
