The marinara was tasteless and right out of the can. Tiramisu was rancid and we only took one bite. Explains why they were so slow. Prices were great but did not match the food. Staff tried hard but this was a non-starter.

Great selection of soups, wines and main courses. Had the Capellini with a side sausage. Very good. Great seating, not rushed. Waiter was pleasant and professional. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. Next door to the Marriott Courtyard which made it even better!! Highly recommend.

Nice and comfortable hotel in Solana Beach. Ocean close by. Check-in was a little weird. The woman didn’t seem to know some basic facts. The hotel restaurant is outside the lobby, which made it a little difficult in rain and wind.

A get together with good friends turned out to be quite a disappointing night. First we were 4 couples who asked for 4 separate checks (I per couple). When the orders came they were quite sporadic in delivery. In fact, one ladies dinner came after...More

Reminds me of the canned spaghetti of the Chef! Very bland tasting lasagna, cheap ingredients. I’ve had better from Stouffers frozen lasagna.

Actually she does say that often. This place is one of our favorites and we live walking distance from it. Insightful and delicious Italian food from long-time employees, in an intimate setting. Race time finds this place packed, and in other seasons- guess what? It's...More
