We took a chance having been tipped off by our Napa wine tour guide. As you can't book, it could be a bit hit and miss, but we waited less than 5 minutes on a Saturday night to get a table for four. Tables were constantly full, with locals as well as tourists and the place had a warm atmosphere. The food is standard Italian fayre, but all well cooked and served by friendly staff. The wine list isn't extensive, but covers most tastes and budgets. A welcoming place in an upmarket area of town.

“Great service and food!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Went yesterday with my husband and 23 month old and it was fantastic. Had read there could be a wait but it was less than a 10 min wait at 7pm. Elena was the best server ever- she accommodated our off menu request for my son and brought his food prior to the appetizers which gave us a head start to start feeding him and then us eat. Everything was delicious. Try anything with the pesto sauce which was outstanding. Homemade gnocchi great too. Will definitely return next time in town.

“Popular spot and for reason”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

always a good sign when a restaurant is still bustling after 1 with a lunch crowd. Pasta and risotto were just perfect. Reasonable prices and friendly staff.

Very quaint place very good food. Everything is homemade and very good. The desserts are to die for and very tasty wine as well. If in the Nob Hill are it is a must do!

“Mmm...foccacia...”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

The service was very good.

Our pizzas were quite tasty and somewhat bigger than I'd expected.

But, the hit of our meal was the foccacia. That bread basket was fantastic. Don't skip it.
