Went here as a recommendation of our uber driver. All homemade pasta, served by an authentic Italian server. Pasta special was delicious, just spicy enough. Homemade canolli not too sweet. Best dinner we've had in SD

Beautiful restaurant and patio. That's all good I can say about this place. Arugula salad was old, it seemed like it has been sitting for couple days. The food was not tasty and has nothing to do with Italian cuisine. The pasta sauces are completely off.

Arrived early for drinks and appetizers. Happy hour is great. Very affordable wine. Very good appetizers. Definitely popular with locals. We will visit again.

I was glad to visit this local landmark known for its fine Italian food. The food was not quite what I expected: most dishes were drowned in a rather heavy tomato sauce. And the warm ambiance was spoilt by a manic barman, spurred on by an equally manic client. Both repeatedly shrieked with laughter, making it impossible to have a conversation.
