I visited twice during opening week and had the ravioli special and tagliatelle ragu. Both were very good as was the Cesar salad. Bread is limited. My suggestion is that the restaurant serve authentic Italian bread with olive oil. Personal suggestions for more options on...More

The menu is varied, and several specials were offered. The food was enjoyed by all of us. It took 15 minutes to be served a glass of wine which I meant to enjoy while reading the menu.

We saw this place on Yelp and thought we would try yesterday. It is new but the chef was the lead chef at Antonello's, our favorite restaurant in Orange County. We were NOT disappointed! Carpaccio di Cinghiale, which was excellent. We also had the Trofie al Ragu' di Coniglio which is pasta with rabbit ragu. The pasta was homemade and the ragu was different but really flavorful. We never would have thought of rabbit as an entree, but here we would order it again!
