We dined here with a group of 7 and had a fantastic meal, great bottle of wine and excellent service. The food is always good and usually there is extra to take home. Try the filet mignon meatballs- you won't be disappointed.

Third time is the charm; This was my third visit to this local favorite. The restaurant is simply decorated, cozy, but they always manage to seat you even without reservation. The service is fast and very friendly. My previous meals were all very good. This time I had the pizza with duck-confit and arugula salad. It was a very interesting... More

We were staying near here so we decided to try it out after reading good reviews about it. We were pleasantly surprised how good the food was, we tried the special for the pizza and it was an eggplant parmesan that was delicious. We paired it with some local wine and had a great dinner.

We were late on the road looking for a place to eat, almost closing time. We found this surprisingly nice place.

Small place, very welcoming. They were willing to squeeze my group of 3 into a 2- top. We had oysters, great both ways- japanese grilled and raw, served with a lemon sorbet on each oyster, nice touch! Grilled scallops great, perfectly cooked with salty procuitto wrapped around each. My companions had steak, we had a nice Humboldt County Pinot, my... More

On arrival, our reservation was immediately honored. We were seated at our table for the four of us which was just the right distance from others to allow pleasant and undisturbed conversation. We had not visited for awhile, but our prior pleasant experiences were repeated. The menu offers a variety of choices,and the staff readily modified the preparation of at... More

A bit pricey, but worth it! Got their at 6 on a Tuesday night. No reservations, but were seated immediately. By 6:15, place was full. Twelve tables, so make reservations. Duck confit and Roquefort filet: excellent! Perfectly cooked. Also had scallop appetizer: excellent! The only reason not giving 5 stars is the pricing.

Be sure to make reservations! This is a true treasure in Arcata, CA. They are now open for lunch. Fresh food, daily delicious specials, and some of the best gourmet pizzas in the area.
