We had a party of Ten for a Business dinner and the service was impeccable! The pear appetizer with Gorgonzola cheese was to die for. The "Strudel con pasta fatta in casa" was was delectable. The Panna Cotta with coulis of port wine and berries melted in our mouths. The servers recommended wine pairings as we'll to enhance every course. We felt we were the only table in the establishment as we'll the owner personally came to visit to ensure we we all very satisfied.

Have visited a number of times. Dungeness Crab was excellent. Our entire party enjoyed our meals.

If you're short, beware of the booths... unless you like to rest your chin on the table while sitting upright.

Service was excellent.

Research stated that it was a "top 10" restaurant in the San Francisco area. We had one evening to spend before heading on to Sonoma and wine country. Excellent choice! My husband said it was the "best halibut" he's ever had and he travels extensively. Service was top ten too. Made us feel very special and waiter even brought over a small order of an appetizer he said we had to try. Delicious!

We chose this via Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed. This is an excellent meal and all 8 of us were happy. Excellent wine selection, though no hard liquor, but we found a favorite Italian Wine on the list! The staff was genuine and offered superb service. You won't be sorry.
