OK, so we looked up the top places in OC and found this place listed near the top and just had to try it. We were greeted by a mature, knowledgeable, and pleasant server and seated immediately. She took our drink order and told us the daily specials and within a few minutes was back with our drinks and some bread and oil. In only a few minutes more she was back asking if we had any questions about the menu or needed any additional help with selections. She wasn’t being pushy, just helpful, and after a question or two we had made our selections. I had the ‘bean soup’ with a Cesar salad and one of the special main courses. The soup was great, fresh made and very tasty and the Cesar was also very tasty without being overpowering. The main course of shells with sausage and marinara was perfectly prepared. She who must be obeyed had Cesar and Veil which was also very well prepared. The only shortfall of the entire evening was the bread. It just didn’t live up to the rest of the meal. The only way to describe it is that it would have been the guy laying on the beach getting sand kicked in his face, not the muscle guy doing the kicking. The crust had not chew to it, wimpy at best.
