We visited this restaurant because they have an enclosed outdoor balcony which is dog-friendly. The pastas were good, as was the pizza. Beer and wine is sold as well. Some of the staff seemed a little put off by the dog, even though he was quiet and very well-behaved. However, the staff was friendly, the restaurant is charming, and the... More

As always we had great food and food service. It was a Sunday night and they were super busy. Service and food came out on a timely basis. We all just love to dine here.

The food was quite good but because they were so understaffed, our food arrived -- warmish. By the time I was half way through my lasagne it was cold.

The place was bustling with couples, young ones and old ones. No children. I took my 18 year old son who unlike others his age has a sophisticated palate. We split appetizers in order to... More

A lovely casual place to enjoy Italian food in the wine country. I have eaten here several times over the past couple of years, and always enjoy their great salads and pizza. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Portions are generous and the food simply but well-prepared. I typically order pizza and compared to past times, my recent... More

Not only is the Italian restaurant extremely good, so was the service. Very friendly, It is the kind of service you never forget. We all ordered very different dishes from a delicious steak, to a linguini with shrimp, to a fresh salmon fillet. All extremely flavorful, very well prepared. And the deserts were amazing as well.

We eat here at least once a week and have for over a decade. Fun atmosphere w/ great cafe type staff. Not a business meeting place....let's of loud talking w/ table close to each other....but very fun.
