At least you'll save a few bucks using a Groupon . Not the best atmosphere, but the food is good. Wish they would let you use expired Groupons as cash instead of only letting you use one (expired) Groupon per table. .

Quite cozy restaurant that makes wonderful Italian food. A little pricey but everything is so delicious that it is worth it. A great family place with attentive servers.

We go for lunch every now and again. My husband loves the calamari with shrimp. I always lean towards the eggplant parmigiana. The food is consistently wonderful and served with a smile. I love my hugs from the owner, Franco.

A wonderful find in La Mesa. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Would come back in a spumoni flavored heartbeat.

This is absolutely the BEST place to go out to dinner in east county, hands down. The food and service are always monumentally good! The menu changes occasionally (but not the prices) so that there are new things to try as well as the perennial...More
