Located in Pacific Beach, on Balboa Ave finds a cute little eatery run by an Italian lady who cooks like Mamma did years ago. I had the ravioli in cream sauce with ham and mushrooms that was very, very good. Menu is limited mostly pizza and a few pasta dishes, no chicken or fish, however the home cooking that you enjoy makes up for the limited menu. I would recommend that you stop by, parking is very limited to the street on a busy Balboa Ave, but off hours should allow you to park out front.

Delicious, authentic, creative Italian food in a charming setting, with very friendly service. We enjoyed gnocchi, spinach tortelloni and risotto. Portions are large. It was very pleasant to sit on the front patio for our meal.

When I read the yelp reviews of this place talking about how good the cheese gnocchi is... I wonder...hmmmm isn't cheese quesadilla awesome too...what's common between the two? Ah yes, it's the cheese. Seriously you will be better off if you went to seven eleven next door and had a hot dog, terrible service, average food and pinch in my pocket that is turning into a big red mark because I did not get value for my money.

Great food! Ask for extra garlic on your pesto! It was delicious!
