Wow...I am of Italian decent and it is as good if not better than what I have had in Italy. Our waiter was outstanding and the food is all from scratch and very reasonable. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough!
Best Italian food in the gaslamp! Excellent service, food is fantastic! The lobster ravioli was absolutely delicious and must try the veal chop. Authentic from the waiters to the food, this place is the real deal. Can't wait to come back!
This place is a fav! We had the BRUSCHETTA Pomodoro & Pappardelle pasta & RISOTTI AI PORCINI. Can not wait to go back. We also had a assortment of desserts that I cannot remember however they were YUM!!
This place feels more Italian with its charming staff and servers of Italian origin along with delicious food. They seem to care that we have an enjoyable experience and went out of their way to make allergen friendly food for my 7 y old.
