Stumbled on this while visiting Proctor St. and U. Puget Sound and was amazed. Food was excellent, service was fun and fabulous. Seafood salad was fresh and a wonderful variety; the homemade gnocchi was excellent and presented spectacularily; loved the house dipping oil. Really felt we were back in Italy.

My husband and i have visited Italy and this food is the closest thing to being there. Alfredo, the owner, is from southern Italy and his meals are fab. The only concern i would have is that it gets really noisy in the later part of the evening, so we tend to go early so we can hear each other talking. The food and service well worth the travel.
A++++

Slow service for adequate food. In this part of the world and on this very street you can do a lot better. Not worth your hard earned money.

I did not know this little area even existed in a not noteworthy city. The whole Proctor area is a treat and is a fun destination. We looked on our phones for places to eat and settled on this one. So glad we did. The food is absolutely authentic Italian cuisine and very fresh.
I love that they don't have a dessert "menu", just a choice of items the chef decided to bake.
Both or our meals were outstanding. We also had the daily special on the wine, which was quite good.
It was very reasonably priced for everything we had. Skip the chain restaurants and support local and small businesses. You will be glad you did.

What is not to like at this family friendly Italian Eatery (Bistro), from being waited on by the owner to the wonderful choices on the menu not to mention the nightly specials (salad through dessert) It was an amazing culinary experience that I quite appreciated from other options available :) Yes we will be eating there again with our children later in the month!
