Interesting and well thought out menu combined with a young and energetic wait staff make this a pleasant dining experience. Extra marks as their bread is really excellent. Minus for not having seafood forks to go with the Cioppino. As in the title, it’s pretty...More

We just love this restaurant. The Italian food is extraordinarily good. They make their own pasta too. This time was a bit of a disappointment because the waitress was just not very good. She was hired because she is a beautiful blonde with a great...More

I have been here several times for work events. Mostly had appetizers and drinks in the patio in the back. The appetizers were good. I especially liked the meatballs and the dates wrapped in bacon.

Italian food is at the top of my list of favorites. To find this restaurant and give them five stars means a lot. The food was extraordinary. Actually can’t wait to come back. This is one of the great ones to always remember.

All of the food here is really good, but the meatballs with their housemate marinara sauce is unbelievably great. We go here just to have the meatballs. The appetizer menu is very broad with steamed mussels, brucheta, peaches and burrata, etc.
