Patria was the happiest meal we had in Salinas. Good bread, good soup, excellent snitzel and spaetzel, and very good desserts. The espresso was also excellent and served perfectly.

I would always call in a reservation. Discuss what they can do for his BD when you call for a reservation. It is a very good restaurant.
