We had reservations for dinner for 3 people on November 28th. I called ahead to explain that we were flying in from the East Coast, so we selected the last seating at 9:30pm. I called again at 8:30 to say that we had landed but had not yet received our bags. I was told that this would not be a... More

Looking for a place near our hotel (Comfort Suites) before flying to Tokyo. Found this place on-line. Really enjoyed the dinner. First class Southern Italian food. I had the lasagne; my partner had the special -- sole in a lemon butter sauce. Service was attentive without being overbearing. Great bartender who knew how to fix good martinis. Excellent bread.

Our hotel recommended that we dine here. The food won't blow you away but it's very good. Service was friendly but they missed a few things in our order. Corkage fee was $15. The salad that comes with the meal with the house dressing was great.

Fantastic food in an unexpected place. Wonderfully old-school in a city full of restaurants with live-edge tables and hipster servers. Highly recommend!

South San Francisco (the city) is a wonderful little town south of Daly City and Brisbane (and thus south of San Fran.) We found this Italian restaurant there. It was awesome. If you go, don't order regular stuff. Order their homemade or specialty entrees. Wonderful experience. We had left-overs and they tasted just as good the next day warmed up... More

Nice meal, but very crowded. they should take out a few tables, to give diners more privacy. Very expensive for "non downtown", but food was good.
