Dined here to celebrate a friend’s birthday and loved the food, service and atmosphere. Small restaurant with delicious menu offerings.

From the impeccable service to the amazing food...best place in La Mesa! Don’t let its location (in the Von’s strip mall) fool you...our favorite go-to place for celebrations, with visitors or just an evening out! Try the Mushroom Risotto! Absolutely the best!
