This was my third time for dinner at this quaint, unassuming restaurant. The food is consistently exquisite at very reasonable prices. The waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. Can't wait until my next visit to Paso Robles for this mandatory dining destination!!

Grilled octopus and Pappardelle al Cinghiale (Homemade pappardelle with wild boar ragu) were absolutely amazing. The wine list is well curated with a great selection of Paso Robles wines. Great atmosphere and service. A reservation is highly recommended.

Crostini con Burrata for four, four different entres plus Tiramisu for a finish, great meal with excellent service. I would increase the size of the tables for four a tad just for the fitting all that great food, beverage, etc on the table.

This is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food & great service -- that is what you end up paying for. Not a cheap dinner, but definitely worth the prices, would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great date.

Great place to appreciate the marriage of food and wine. An incredible experience not to be missed. Even met the wine maker from the local winery featured the night of our visit. Doesn't get much better.

Great food and excellent service. We were a larger party that had been wine tasting all day. They were great and accommodating. We spent at least two hours dining and never felt rushed or table hogging. Probably went to my first choice for dining in...More

We loved this place. Great food and service. Both the scallop and octopus appetizers were delicious. I had the pappardelle pasta with boar and my husband had the pork osso bucco. Both were to die for! The one thing they could have done better was...More
