Description: Cozy and quaint setting that will bring you back to Italia! A true trattoria one would find roadside in Tuscany. Our cuisine is traditional authentic Italian. With many classical dishes including homemade lasagne, our classic ricotta & spinach ravioli and gnocchi made in house daily. Bread fresh from the oven every morning compliments our garlicky Sicilian tomato pesto dipping sauce. A rock star wine list with more than 100 bottles offered at every price point and more than 20 wines by the glass to choose from. Daily specials are more contemporary Italian with a range of game meats including rabbit, venison, quail and bison using produce and recipes of the season. Gluten-free & whole grain pastas are available as well as a wide variety of vegetarian items to choose from. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and high quality products for an enchanting experience for all of our guests. Raise your glass and fill your soul with heart and goodness ~ cheers!

This bustling Italian bistro is serving up exceptional Italian fare with an elegant twist. My wife loved her burrata served with prosciutto and peaches; my beef carpaccio was excellent. The entrees were outstanding also. I had the meat cannelloni and my wife enjoyed the shrimp special.

We took a break from the usual beach and California cuisine for some Italian comfort food. Happily this little restaurant offered both-excellent pasta and Italian with a California twist. The menu is extensive and we were torn between pastas and seafood dishes. Everything we tried was delicious especially the special salad of the day with fennel, arugula, pomegranate and more.
This is a tiny place but seating inside and out.

Went there due to yelp reviews. Bread came first. Soft and tasteless with a small bowl of cold tomato sauce. Give me a break! Give me crusty sour dough if you can’t make Italian/French crusty bread. The plates were ample but tasteless. Not a memorable experience.

We went for lunch. Service was good (only four tables occupied). I didn’t catch the wine list, but the food menu was great. Plenty of daily specials, but not a whole lot of meat-dishes. We ordered pasta, lasagne, fish....everything was cooked to perfection and very flavorful. I will definitely go back
