It's hard to get a reservation (try calling the restaurant if open table doesn't have any openings) but well worth it. All of the pastas are fabulous - portions are small - a small bowl of pasta is about $20, but the flavors are impeccable....More

We snagged a reservation at 5:45 on a Sunday night and felt really lucky. This place is very busy, but for good reason! Great, rustic Italian food, good wine, relaxed but quality service. Cozy atmosphere in a quieter neighborhood.

We reserved the private room upstairs.....what an amazing atmosphere and place to enjoy a family dinner. The salad, the short ribs and the best was taleggio scarpinocc with balsamic. The minimum for the room was $1500.

From burritos to bicyclists, the Mission is the
foundation for all things hip in the city. Cultural

street murals and a high density of bars and cafes
make this neighbourhood a magnet for young people.
While terrific inexpensive food is abundant, its
top-of-the-line restaurants now compete with the
city’s best for fashionable diners. Indulge as the

Fresh house-made pasta, wood-fired pizza, house-cured meats. It’s all about simple and authentic Italian food rooted in the south, executed with skill, expertise and old world standards of care. The defining goal of the restaurant for its ambiance and style of service is to make everyone feel welcome. "We feel very strongly about creating a ‘come as you are’ atmosphere in the restaurant."
