Wonderful menu--small but creative and choice. A rose wine from Northern Italy that you won't find anywhere else in the US.

Enjoyed the selections provided for the party. The only down side is it was freezing in the restaurant. The food was presented well and the service was good. The antipasti and dessert was served family style but there was a choice of entrees. Nice ambiance.

Looking for the same food that you are getting on a airplane? Go there. If you ever experienced Italian food before, you will see right away that what they are selling is equivalent to the cheapest food you can buy in grocery store in Italy....More

vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter

restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
